and here's where you went from creepy but likely harmless to offensively self-absorbed and clueless.
I work instep legs and shoes into almost all of my work, whether planned or discovered in post. The ones known for their eyes or chest parts are often delighted when seeing themselves in a full length mirror.
Some here mentioned Colin Ray as an artist that has a truly unique style when it comes to foot photography. I admire his work very much.
My style ranges from erotic to artistic. Some of my images are strictly abstract representations, others are intimate,some are playful and others are erotic. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder......we have no control over how people will label us and or the images we create.
I just put it out there.
FYI.....I have never had a problem getting models to pose for my images. It a matter of respecting boundaries, being polite and professional.
I make the most money off foot modeling, even though my toe nails are far from perfect. Yes, it is a fetish type of modeling most of the time, but there are also plenty of great shoe catalogs in the mix whom I enjoy working with a lot.
Nape of the neck
Back of the knee
The palm of the hand
These are areas of the body that help heighten sexual experience.
Good ad agencies include shots of one or more of these zones in just about every advertisement. For most, its not intended as a fetish but often including shots like these make the ad more erotic or sensual. Many people don't know what about these ads might resonate with them they just know they do.
I'm sure a lot of people here in the U.S have seen the commercials for the Cadillac STS with an attractive women in a dress driving through a tunnel talking about it makes you feel driving that car. Her legs and feet, as she depressed the throttle, are predominantly featured, for what purpose?
This happens way more than people realize, is it perverted? You can be the judge of that.
If one looks at the map of the brain - the feet and toes are right next to the genitals - so partialism isn't so hard to imagine. A third of the bones in the body, a body part that must be used everyday in order to be productive. They are adorned and attached to the longest limbs of the body like a trunk, not augmented nor does anything get secreted from them or needily sucked on wantily maybe
