Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (180)
My Bio
Steve Diet Goedde has been a fine art photographer for nearly 18 years. He is known for his subtle approach to photographing the high-gloss fetish world in a very non-gloss, down-to-earth style. His attention to composition and black and white tonal quality has given him the title of the Ansel Adams of fetish. Steve established his photographic style in the early 1990s in Chicago where he photographed the contents of his first book "The Beauty of Fetish" (Edition Stemmle) which was released in 1998. That same year, Steve relocated to Los Angeles where he continued to define his evolving style. This west coast work was later compiled in his second Edition Stemmle book "The Beauty of Fetish: Volume II" in 2001. In 2006, Slish Pix released a DVD compilation of his work entitled "Living Through Steve Diet Goedde". In 2009, Steve collaborated with French composer Robert Waechter on a CD entitled "GoeddeConcerto" (ReadyMade Music) in which the ConcertMaster of the Philharmonic of Nice, France interprets 21 of Steve's photographs into 21 mini-concertos.

Thanks so much for commenting. Such a great story with a happy ending! If interested in a print, it's part of my B-series of affordable prints priced significantly less than my limited gallery prints. See it and others at stevedietgoedde.bigcartel.com. My apologies for spamming up your otherwise nice message!

Thanks! And I DO include a shoot story - that's the little sheet of paper behind the print in the photo.

First of all, I very much appreciate the honest criticism. I'm not always out to create masterpieces. I like to post items of subtle quality too. I think it's good to balance them out. Many of my personal favorites just feel right to me but may not work for everyone else. I personally like this photo very much. Why exactly I can't tell you because it stirs something indefinable inside me. So even if I'm the only one who enjoys it, it's still a successful photograph for me (the only real person I take photographs for).

I was also partially motivated to post it by a lot of overly positive feedback from fellow friends and artists. So if I like it and they like it, that's usually a reliable indication that it's a good shot. Like a lot of artists, it's not always easy picking our best work. Objectivity is a very valuable luxury to have access to sometimes. But like with most art, some like it, some do not. And that's cool with me.

It was actually a scenario that just happened to work that way and not necessarily planned. My friends and I were staying at the La Concha Motel in Vegas (before they tore it down) which hadn't been updated since the 1960s. And since I shoot a lot of retro models, the location just turned out to be unintentionally perfect!

Your first guess is correct - a mirror. She's lying on a bathroom sink that has a full mirror behind it.
