Thursday's Shoot - Jamie

Image
On Wednesday I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with Jamie and do her first new shoots of 2014. Since I only had a few hours open that day before I had to be in for work, we decided to on shoot back-to-back days. I wanted to try to get in three new sets and there wasn't enough time to do that on Wednesday - especially since we did a pedicure stop first. If you haven't read the blog, " Wednesday's Shoot - Jamie ," check that one out first as this is kind of a continuation from the day before. It might even be the first time in 10 years that I shot the same model on back-to-back days. Maybe not, but I can't recall ever doing it off the top of my head. On both Wednesday and Thursday I was worried about the rain. The forecast call for rain both dates, but we lucked out on Wednesday.When I woke up on Thursday, however, there was a steady drizzle. Jamie texted me to ask me the plan. "We're going to the store to buy some rubber rain boots," I

Wednesday's Shoot - Jamie

Image
Yesterday I had a few hours open before I had to be at work. Jamie and I decided to do a quick shoot, but we had to make a quick stop to get her toes painted first. By chance, I picked this amazing shade of teal that matched a top and a pair of flip flops she brought with her. Our original idea was to do a set with some flats, but with all the teal going on, I changed plans. A few days ago I looked at some parks I had never used for shoots before. Abby shot at one (see blog: "Today's Shoot - Abby) and the following day, Kayleigh shot at two others (see blog: Yesterday's Shoot - Kayleigh"). Since we only had a few hours before I had to be at work, I decided to try one of the others since it was nearby. We made our way through the large park and at the very end we found an area with two piers. One was quite weathered, but the other was in much better condition. As much as I liked the weather look, the pier itself was kind of small, so we went for the other. Jam

Sunday's Shoot - Charlee

Image
Today was set to be a good day. Charlee and I scheduled a photo shoot, she told me she needed her feet rubbed, and we were going to spend the rest of the day at Six Flags America. So I was set to enjoy two of my most favorite things in the world today - women's feet and roller coasters. Well, one out of two isn't bad. More on that at the conclusion of this blog. Charlee picked me up as she wanted to drive. We decided to plan our shoots at locations down around the amusement park so we could just drive right over and hit up the rides. The first location was at a Metro Rail station. This particular station had a unique piece of art at the entrance that I had been eyeing up on Google Earth when I planned this, but we quickly found there was really no spot to pose other than on the ground. Since Charlee was wearing a dress and pantyhose in this set (first time doing a stocking set), we decided to look around for a Plan B. We looked onto the train station itself, but surprisi

Tuesday's Shoot - Kayleigh

Image
It was only a few hours ago when I was eating at an Italian restaurant with a friend I haven't seen in a few years. This friend is one of the most dependable models I've ever had on my site and one that current ranks as 7th among all of my models for the most photos published to the site with 1,284. This model is none other than Kayleigh . Kayleigh didn't waste time getting on the site, posing the day she turned 18 back in 2009. Since then, she posed regularly and I found her in front of my camera 19 different times in a three year span. And then she moved to Texas! Needless to say, my heart was broken. I loved shooting photos of my small-footed friend. Although I had several sets of hers that I hadn't published when she moved to Texas, the idea that she may no longer pose for me did occupy my thoughts. The two sets I posted to the site of Kayleigh in 2013 were both shot in 2012. Back to the present now. Kayleigh and I are eating way too much food for our bellies

Wu Tribute Ribbon Download

Some of you have taken notice of the watermarks on the  Soles of Silk photo sets and teasers as of this week. When I found out about Wu of Wu's Feetlinks passing away on Sunday, I created a black and white tribute ribbon (featured above) that I put into effect immediately on all sets moving forward. I've placed it in numerous places on my site as well. If you'd like to use this banner, I'm leaving two links below for a the file - one in Photoshop (PSD) format and the other, in a flattened JPG file. Please feel free to use it to honor Wu and his legacy!

Monday's Shoot - Abby

Image
What a weekend - and not a good one either! Late Saturday night Mindee texts me that she and her cousin (a new model) will not be able to shoot as planned for Sunday. Mindee had to take her son to the emergency room that night and her cousin was away because her husband treated her to a two day vacation for her birthday. He didn't realize she had plans to shoot when he booked it. I was really looking forward to those sets, but things happen in life and Mindee has never cancelled on me in 10 years. I think it was a pretty good reason. And then came Sunday... I woke up Sunday and was just lounging around the house when I noticed the statement from BHE about Wu of Wu's Feetlinks passing away. It read: "It is with deep sorrow that we must inform you of the death of the original Wu, Alex F. Alex and BHE have been partners in producing and hosting Wusfeetlinks.com for more than 15 years. We pledge to continue to maintain the high standards set by Alex." - BHE I

"It is with deep sorrow that we must inform you of the death of the original Wu, Alex F. Alex and BHE have been partners in producing and hosting wusfeetlinks.com for more than 15 years. We pledge to continue to maintain the high standards set by Alex." - BHE, May 18, 2014 Talk about a sad way to start off the day. Just last night I had signed into the Wu's Feetlinks Forum and noticed an influx of new members. With Wu not having been active for months and him being the only person who could approve newcomers, I was hopeful. No one knew why he wasn't around. It had been a mystery that was hotly debated on the forum. This morning, however, shattered that hope with the quote above, which can be found on Wu's Feetlinks splash and home pages. I've said many times in the past - Wu was amazing and not just to myself, but the community as a whole. Although I never personally met him, I felt like we knew each other so well. If you consider how long we excha

Soles of Silk F.A.Q. - Shoot Themes

Image
When I first began to explore my fetish years ago I quickly realized that there are countless sub-genres to this little fetish of ours. While I don't exactly enjoy all of them, I try to include some variation on the site when it comes to the sets I post. In this entry to the Soles of Silk F.A.Q. blog series I am going to take a look at some of the sub-genres you will find on the site and how I determine which ones I shoot. Frequently Asked Question:  What foot fetish themes will I find on Soles of Silk? Over the years I've kind of found a grove of shoot themes that my members seem to enjoy. I also enjoy many of these to various degrees, but here is what you will find looking through the page of Soles of Silk with some samples for each: Bare Feet & Blue Jeans ( Sample 01 / Sample 02 ) Dirty Soles  ( Sample 01 / Sample 02 ) Food Smashing  ( Sample 01 / Sample 02 ) Flip Flops  (Sample 01 / Sample 02 ) Oily Feet  ( Sample 01 / Sample 02 ) Shoes/Sandals/Boots
