Unfurling The Rose

She felt more than heard the swish of the strop as he swung it down towards the cheeks of her behind. There was a crack. She loved those moments after the strike, the microseconds that it took her body to transmit the stinging sensation from her buttocks to her brain. It had barely arrived before there was a second impact and then a third. The pain began to blossom like an unfurling rose spreading between her legs.

The crop swished again catching the soft tops of her thighs causing a sharp sensation that sent endorphins flooding through her body. He stopped; his fingers pushed her swollen lips apart and brushed against the sensitive skin as they moved up to the swollen bud. The touch that would always excite her was now electric. She gasped and her knees buckled.

His fingers dropped away and she felt the leather of the strop brush against her; she no longer knew which sensation she desired more. He pushed her knees apart, spreading her legs he gently rested the leather against her sex. He flicked the strands and they smacked gently against her. She moaned until one of the tips found clitoris forcing her cry out in pleasure. It flicked the bud again and a climax swept over her as she collapsed forward onto the chair.

The strop smacked across her buttocks and rose up onto her knees and eagerly spread her legs.

Shutter Speeds

When we set out camera to P (Program) or Auto the camera will select the best (it thinks) apertures and shutter speeds.  But what if we want to freeze movement – for example to a swishing cane?

When something in your photograph is moving a slower shutter speed will allow it to blur as the movement continues during the exposure. Faster shutter speeds may freeze the motion; depending on how fast the object is going. See Beginners Guide to Spanking Photography

Exposure

That’s the cameras not the models.

Exposure Compensation

Your camera has a very sophisticated metering system that is good at controlling the amount of light that hits the sensor (the exposure) but it is not infallible and of course it doesn’t work with studio flash. There are also limits to the system. Most cameras can cope with all but the brightest lights such as pointing it at the midday sun. Not recommended anyway as you might burn out the sensor and your eyeballs. At the other end of the scale there comes a point in darkness where our human eyes can cope but the camera just cannot let enough light in to the create a viable picture.

Beginners Guide to Spanking Photography

Getting good spanking photos is not easy so here’s a few tips.

The idea of receiving (or giving) a good spanking is quite a turn on for many people. There are some professional and amateur models who are willing to pose for spanking or other BDSM orientated photographs but whether you are using a lover or model they are always in charge. Everything should be strictly consensual and if they say stop or use a safe word then stop.

Administering a spanking or other punishment effectively and within the recipients limits is an art which takes practice; it is also very difficult to do with a camera in your hand. I’ll admit that some, but not all, of my spanking and whipping pictures are posed but I challenge you to work out which photos are which. It’s amazing what you can do with a stripe of lipstick, a bit of make up and Photoshop 

Hint: Even the firmest cheeks ripple when whacked with a hand or paddle and this can be caught on camera.

Lighting

Lighting Bondage Photography.

Daylight or Artificial Light?

Nature has given us a large, bright light source complete with some very handy diffusers (clouds). Unfortunately we have no control over when these diffusers appear and, although the sun is always shinning it reaches us with varying intensity.  Since I am assuming that most of your bondage photography will take place indoors, except for the more adventurous, then you are probably going to need some form of artificial light.
