Random End of the Month Stuff

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

It's almost August! Man, where has the summer went? Things are going by so quickly and keeping up sometimes isn't easy. I always seem to pull through and get these updates posted right on time — and by the sounds of things, you're happy with what's been happening. With August on the horizon, here are some of the things going on with me and the site.

Video Clips

So many people have wanted me to shoot video clips and for months now I have been doing just that. Of course none of them are on the site, but that is because I have been building up a small collection of them to introduce to all of you in a brand new section here on the site. I also have some other sections planned as well, but the video clips section is without a doubt going to be the one you all want to see.

Almost every single shoot I've done I've shot some small clips, and one a few of them I've shot up to four of them just from the one shoot. What I need to focus on doing now, however, is learning Final Cut Pro on the Macintosh so I can put in some nice intros and put all the site's information on them. You know me, I have to make things look nice. I wouldn't be an artist if I didn't take pride in my work.

If anyone has an e-book (electronic book - PDF file) on Final Cut Pro (version 4.5 HD), I'd be helped immensely with getting these clips edited and posted. I want to put together a sample video containing snippets from different video shoots for all of you to see what's coming before I get the section done. I do have some freelance jobs going on with maintaining this site, scheduling shoots and working a full and part time job all at once. Yeah, kind of busy aren't I?

A shot from Carmen's feature set on Wu's Feet Links - a first for Soles of Silk.

Wu's Feature Girl - Carmen

Wu just posted Carmen as his newest feature model this week, in a set titled, "Blue Jeans & Toes." The set is exclusive to Wu's Feet Links, so don't miss out on 66 photos of one of the site's most popular models. And of course, I was sure to grab some video action of her wiggling her toes from this shoot too.

New Models

Two weeks ago I had planned on shooting two new models in separate shoots on a Sunday. The forecast called for rain all day long and at midnight, the night before, it was storming bad! I cancelled both shoots and the next day ended up clear (although hot) and both new models haven't been rescheduled. I'm working on getting new dates and times with these two cute girls.

I also have two other new models who will be posing shortly, one of them being this week. She has some very little feet. I can't remember her shoe size off the top of my head, but I'm venturing to think that she'll be in the running for smallest on the site. And a second model just turned 18 last week. She will be posing for you as soon as we can get a date and time to match.

Soles of Silk Forum

The Soles of Silk Forum has been quite popular as of late. With some of the awesome new sets, the addition of Lexi and Carmen's feature gallery on Wu's, people have been interested in what's going on here. I've been trying to keep up with all of you and so have some of the girls. Chloe and Abby have been posting quite a bit and Carmen was in recently too. I'm sure she'll be popping in quite a bit here with her new feature set. I've also talked to Madison, who said she's been meaning to stop in. So be sure to say "hey" to the girls.

Meeting Lexi - A Fan Boy's Dream

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

With Lexi's debut I am sure many of you want to know what she's like in person and hear all about my six hours of shooting one of the web's most popular foot girls. Well, from one fan boy to many, here is what it was like working with the owner of two of the highest arches you'll find anywhere!

Friday, July 8 - 3:30 p.m.
With the car packed my brother and I leave to pick up our friend for the seven hour trip up north. We find all kinds of rest stops through New Jersey and New York to blow lots of money in.

Friday, July 8 - 11:45 
We roll up into our destination and try to find a place to stay for the night. Apparently the town we'd be shooting in doesn't believe in hotels. But at last, after asking some Boston Red Sox fans at a bar (hey, nobody's perfect!) where we can find a hotel, it is back up the highway into the town we passed through earlier.

Once checked in we finally get to park our asses in a bed and watch some ESPN to see that the Orioles beat up on the Red Sox back home in Camden Yards... or as these northerners say, "Camden Yaads." I guess they replace the "r" with another "a?"

Saturday, July 9 - 1:00 
I leave my brother and his friend to fend for themselves back at the hotel and head back to the town where I needed to meet Lexi. I park in front of the studio and head on up to set up. I finally meet Lexi face-to-face and she is even more beautiful in person. But before we get started, we take a quick lunch break at a local pizzeria.

Lexi's first set on the day showcased her deep arches.

Saturday, July 9 - 2:00 
Back at the studio we do out first set, a bare foot one, and Lexi shows off just why her arches won the "Best Arch" Silkie award for 2004 here on Soles of Silk. 

Lexi squished those gummy bears inside her white fishnets.

Saturday, July 9 - 3:00 
The second set we did is the one you get to see this week. People seem to love the food squishing sets and I couldn't let Lexi get away with not doing one. So I picked something colorful and cute — gummy bears. But this set would have an added bonus, it would be the first food squishing set with stockings... and for that matter, shoes.

How sexy does Lexi look in this shot?

Saturday, July 9 - 4:00 
Changing her outfit to something a little more shiny, Lexi posed for her third and final set in the studio. This set contrasted the two prior sets and also happened to include some hot boots that I'm sure her feet have spent lots of time in.

Saturday, July 9 - 5:00 
After pulling down the lights and packing them back into my car, I followed Lexi to a local park to shoot the remainder of our time together outdoors. But looking at the sky, we were unsure of how much time we'd have. A thunderstorm was headed our way. So dressed in a cute little sporty outfit, Lexi showed off her feet and did some dangling shots for all the dangling fans out there. A few rain drops did fall on her bare legs, but the sky turned blue again and we thought we were spared.

We had a couple come by and ask us questions during this set.

Saturday, July 9 - 6:00 
A quick change of clothes and we were off to a spot along a pathway under some trees. As I shot some photos that showed off her unique shoes a couple walking a dog actually stopped to watch us. The woman asked, "Can I ask you what you're doing?"

"Taking photos," Lexi responded.

"Oh, it looked like he was taking photos of her shoes," the woman said to the man she was.

"I am," I said.

The man cracked on the woman and said the camera should have given it away and that he thought me taking photos of her shoes was sexy. A fellow foot fetishist? Perhaps...

I'm so glad we shot this set. It turned out to be the best one on the day.

Saturday, July 9 - 7:00 
Making the prior set the shortest one of the six, Lexi changed into her last set of clothes and then it happened. The clouds rolled in and it began to POUR! I hid my camera under my shirt and Lexi asked what I wanted to do.

"How about some shots in the rain and mud?" I asked.

"Sure," Lexi replied.

Heading to a spot under a tree, we found a place that would supply a nice puddle of water and at the same time, a nice spot of gooey mud! This set turned out to be one I will never forget. I'll probably be posting it the next time I update Lexi's galleries. So you'll just have to wait!

Saturday, July 9 - 8:00 
With her feet cleaned, Lexi and I held a nice conversation before we parted ways. Both of us had a blast shooting all those hours and knew we came away with some unique sets that you're all going to love.

Sunday, July 10 - ALL DAMN DAY!
MapQuest supplied some killer directions for getting back through New York City that saw us trying to figure out where the Hell we were. The directions through New Jersey weren't much better!

Guess the New Sole Mate

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Two weeks ago I posted Jacklyn Lick's first photo set here on Soles of Silk. Meeting Jacklyn was a great experience with her being one of the first foot models I can remember from my early days online. And last year I had the pleasure of meeting with Lisa Tyler from Forever Feet and taking her pictures for Soles of Silk's debut. Her photo shoots were a blast with her fun-loving personality. And then I've also had the pleasure of meeting with Molly, an up and coming starlet in her own right and we can't forget the great shots of Sara Swirls and Kat Noir. All these girls are established elsewhere on the Web and getting the chance to take photos of them for this site was my pleasure. But now a new sole mate looms on the horizon, one we all know too!

This week I will be taking a road trip to bring back shots of this beauty, who will, for now, remain nameless. Her debut is going to be a surprise. So don't be surprised if next week's coming soon photos are teasers that don't show the model fully, if it shows her at all.

So why all the teasing? Well, taking this girl's photos will be one of my prize moments in photography. For a few years I've adored her photos and her cute girl next door look. She has a very unique aspect of her feet that she is well-known for and I aim to make full use of it.

Without tooting my own horn here, I think seeing this popular model posed in front of my camera is going to make for some classic photos. I really enjoy taking photos of some of these established models and giving them a different look than that of what appears on their sites. Not that my photography is anything unique, but I do get my fair share of praise for the angles and attention I pay to the feet. Many people tell me they can tell I have a fetish just through the way I take the photos. That is a praise I take with pride.

So now that I have all of you wondering who this special sole mate is going to be, I've decided to make a poll on the Soles of Silk Forum. I've listed 10 possible people that "could" be this new sole mate. And I will tell you, this model's name IS on the list. Be sure to check it out and take your best guess on who you think this girl is going to be. The choices are: Bellecita, Britney Sweetstink, Erotic Nikki, Genie, Janet Mason, Lexi, Little Dee, Steph, Sultry Sasha, or Tina Marie.

Who do you think this new sole mate is going to be? I guess you'll just have to wait a couple of weeks to find out! A few people have already voiced their opinion on the poll, so be sure to take your best guess!
