1st Try at #blacktapeproject
I come across amazing photography all the time. I find work by other photographers and models often very inspiring. One such artist is Joel Alvarez. I’ve been admiring his Black Tape Project for many years.
I decided to have a go at it myself. So I started to study his work, bought tape, and some small tests with it. Obviously, I don’t want just copy Joel Alvarez’ work. I want to give it my own little touch. How else but by combining the #blacktapeproject with latex?
I had already added a little touch of tape in a shoot with Jolien. No enough to really call it #blacktapeproject though. When I had Shannety in the studio on a rainy day somewhere last September, we decided to have a go at a something that was closer Joel Alvarez’ #blacktapeproject. We went for black latex lingerie from William Wilde, brand new high heels from Pleaser Shoes and touches of tape.
We learned that is not as easy as it looks to apply the tape. It takes a lot of patience from the model and from me to apply the tape. There’s a couple more things I need to figure out. I am confident however, that I am on the road to something cool.
