The Mistress

The Mistress

The central theme of this photo set was the idea of “a powerful mistress caught in a moment of weakness” The only source of light I used was a continuous stage flood I keep for video productions. My oh-so-popular wide lens was the only option as the room we took these pictures in is extremely tiny. It was an empty cellar room with ugly walls and low ceiling which means it served the purpose really well.

The Mistress set portrays emotions of an otherwise powerful mistress, who was caught in a moment of weakness. She wants to be seen as a powerful woman who’s got firm control over herself and others, it’s just a facade hiding the weakening soul.

Ivana did an excellent job posing and balancing on the stool in high heels. My ex did a fantastic job handling the flood and the diffuser. Feel the touch of emotion with The Mistress in distress.

I believe “nude art meets fetish photography” would be a good enough description of this gallery. The dagger which you can see in some of the pictures came from my collection of medieval weaponry I am a big fan of. While daggers are not that typical of BDSM, I think it added a nice touch to the theme.

I shot with Ivana many a time but even the most prolific photographer/model relationship starts with the first time photoshoot during which you kind of get to know each other. Pictures in this gallery are from the very first time me and Ivana worked together.

The sole fact that we ended up shooting many more times in the future is a testament to how well we clicked. I found Ivana to be a very open and enthusiastic model which makes my job easier and that reflects well throughout the pictures.

We held this shoot on one of the first warm days of the Spring. The snow had just melted but weather was still unpredictable with frequent drops in temperature so we were glad to see the sun come out and keep us warm whole day. It allowed us to keep the model naked without freezing her numb.

Ivana brought her leather jacket along so we used it for pictures along with her g-string, fishnets, garter belt and high heels. No digital skin smoothing has been done in post-production. What you see in these pictures, as with all my pictures is what you would get if you were there.

The photos were taken by the museum in Vegreville, Alberta. There was a building with main highway right behind it, but it was Saturday, the museum was closed and nobody was around so we were able to go topless without anyone snooping around. No artificial lighting was used in this photo sessions, however I tagged a gold reflector along to help with shadow softening as sun was rather harsh.
