From my new t-shirt series of 'Greatest Hits' photos at stevedietgoedde.threadless.com • This was from one of the first shoots I did in Los Angeles when I moved there in 1998 from Chicago. At the time, I was doing photos for a few paperback book companies who always had themes they needed photographed. I think this one was for an erotic lesbian novel. I was new to town and only had a few connections. Before I arrived in L.A., I became internet friends with this couple Joel and Karen who ran a bdsm online store called the Stockroom. If I remember correctly, Karen knew these two models Elizabeth and Niki and suggested that I use them. Without seeing or meeting them in advance, we all met at the then-headquarters of the Stockroom in Los Feliz. We shot quite a few pics that morning but this was the one everyone loved. They were laying down on a couch next to a window, and I was balancing myself above them trying not to fall onto them with a heavy medium format camera. I can't remember if they were friends or not, but they had tremendous chemistry with each other. It was a good sign that shooting in L.A. would be a fun new adventure. A few years later, this image would be published in my second book "The Beauty of Fetish: Volume II" (Edition Stemmle, 2000). Shot with the Mamiya 645 with Tmax 400 film with natural light.
