Goddess in Angles

Grip

Twisted

Exploring somewhat more elaborate tying with the gunmetal MFP rope. I think it’s a little too thick for my preference in retrospect. However, I think it photographs well in the studio. Not sure if that’s general as hemp will look nice under studio light – these were taken in a studio – because of the extra detail under light.

I’m also starting to think hemp is overall more useful. Doing things like excess wrap handles in the second photo is nice but MFP won’t hold and, in this case, is usually too thick to wrap and then tie off. Still, it will deform under tugging because it is so slick.

And really, if you can’t tug and pull a body around all rough like, what’s the point? :)

Is this what's known as Japanese Rope Bondage?

It's not something I'm particularly into (or have tried), but it does make for good photos.

Yup - shibari. I agree. It is rather nice to photograph; the MFP in particular looks nice under studio light.

Yeah, it photographs really well. Glossy, and the structure seems to show though better.

But yse, if it doesn't tie as well, it really comes down to what you're there for, the rope or the flesh...

Shiny good in some situations. :) I think next time, I''ll use a black background instead of white so I can control the light better. I had over-exposure issues with two lights.

yeah, that would look awesome too.

I gotta practice before Saturday! I don't want to look like a total n00b.

Nah, it's all about learning. I'll probably have some extra cotton (1/4 and 3/8) if you want to experiment with it. So glad you'll be there!

Ha! I ask myself that question every morning. :)

I think the black background would indeed probably brighten up the contrast. The photos are lovely.
