Completely (and pleasantly) surprised this morning – totally missed a tickling set in the Jan previews. I have made no secret of my love of RE’s barefoot content, and am a huge fan of tickling in bondage (the fight away from being tickled neatly demonstrates the models bondage predicament).
Further to Ariels intro to the set, and a potentially annusing link to my professional life, a lot of the tickling-specific sites (loads of RE models also shoot for UKtickling, for example) use an electric toothbrush. I work for a company that make electric toothbrushes and I have often wondered if our marketing department are aware if this other use for them. In truth I have never seen one of ours used but if I ever do I must think of a way I might accidentally have stumbled across it in a business contex and see what they make of it.
Anyhow. Another great set (2014 has set off to a great start!). More feet, more tickling. Love it.
I agree it’s a great set and would like to add special mention for the faces Katy pulls even before the tickling started (or are we just not seeing it?).
I offer even further admiration if you managed to achieve the trademark Retrained Elegance sharpness of focus while Katy and Natalia were wriggling as rapidly and uncontrollably as, I have reason to believe, some people do while being tickled. It’s not that I mind if they were given an occasional moment to compose a pose, I’m just interested to know.
That’s the benefit of a powerful portable studio strobe system and a medium format camera with a sync shutter speed up to 1/800th of a second 🙂 🙂 🙂
How much did the ambient contribute? My experience has been that if all the light is coming from strobes, then even low-end Alien Bee strobes and a crop-sensor Nikon D90 with 1/200 sync speed can do a decent job of freezing action when the model is wiggling and struggling.
But if you want a significant amount of light from the window, then yeah.
