A couple of weeks ago I shot with fabulous fetish model Dutch Dame. I have known her for years now, and we have always expressed interest in working together, but somehow it just never really happened. Needless to say, I was really excited when she contacted me about a shoot for Torture Garden Clothing. The outfit was simply too amazing to pass up. To complete the team we got Ashley Wolthers to join us to work some make-up and hair magic.


I used a simple but effective light setup, blue gelled light placed slightly behind the model from both sides and a simple softbox placedĀ in front of the model from the left.

The softbox gives subtle soft shadows so the light isn’t too flat and dull, while the blue gelled lighting gives some blue highlighs and reflections.


For some extra flare and bokeh effects I used a piece of cling film and placed it in front of my lens. The blue light reflects off the cling film and results in some fun effects that really show in the image below.



I hope you enjoyed this little blog post filled with subtle tips & tricks. Let me know if you’re going to try it out for yourself, I’d love to see the results!
