Hi Knackers, I am very glad you enjoyed the set as well as the bonus images and it's great that you have a favourite image, that one is really inviting... Thanks for the nice words! I might submit some older sets with Sapphira soon, I am quite sure you would like them!

Hi von Cotrone, it's nice to hear from you, I am always happy when fans like you show such enthusiasm for the models and Sapphira definitely deserves it. And thanks for appreciating also the manipulated bonus images. Looking forward to show more work to you and the others!
sorry for being late in replying but I have very little spare time these days although I am feeling well, thanks for asking.
It's alwasy nice to hear such gratifying words such yours and to feel appreciated for the work and for the models I work with. Sapphira doesn't need presentations.. a great professional model and very sweet girl.
This shooting dates back to September 2014, a hard period for me after they stole all my photogear but I was starting to recover already. Sapphira had been spending summer on holidays and exotic locations for shooting and her skin was nicely tanned.
With 'your adorable Celeste' I am in touch and I had an opportunity to shoot this summer although our dates didn't match finally. I can tell you that I have a couple of sets left with Celeste in my archive, I will consider to submit them for you and her fans ;)
Thank you again for showing your support, it makes me happy and motivates me for new work to show you all.
Nice to see Gerda Rubia/Celia in video, and for those of you who like her you might want to know that I shot several sets with her few weeks ago, so hopefully you will see more of her on Metart and MetartX.
I can say that she is a very nice and sweet girl who can also be very erotic, I enjoyed shooting with her.

Hi hrdbot, sorry for not replying earlier, but I see Krella gave a very credible explanation, I concur.

Hi kilroy! I was going to bed but I stopped by to read your comment before going to get some rest
shortly, of course I'm up for such a pleasant and interesting challenge! let's discuss ;)
and thanks for appreciating the set, it seems there are many viewers who like Lucy this way
Monday, June 19th, 2017 on Alniar
Anche se qui in Lettonia sono quasi le 3 del matrino e ho davvero biaogno di dormi re mi sono soffermato sul tuo messaggio/commento perchè è speciale e ti risponderò più adeguatamente più avanti, volevo farti sapere che ho letto e molto apprezzato.
Mi fa molto piacere che mi chiami Davi come fanno i miei amici..
A presto e grazie ancora per le parole di stima, sento che abbiamo molte affinità, ne parleremo..
ed è bello trovare un connazionale così
vado a dormire un po', ci sentiamo
Too kind of you NVKM... I feel honored by your words of appreciation.. maybe it's too much but I will gladly take it! It's my pleasure to please you and all the enthusiastic viewers and beauty lovers like you.
Thanks for the stats Frank, as usual. Yes I am guilty of retouching... But as you also noted this set was shot more than two years ago when the 'ban' on the tattoos had not been removed yet so I had to comply. So for the new sets will Lucy and Paula Shy I shot last week I will have to deal with new small tattoos..
Thanks No One, I am honored you think this of the set.
I confirm she enjoyed it Jeffrey.... but you already noticed..
Hi Knackers, I am glad to hear you liked this set, we were quite inspired throughout the shooting in that lovely location in Prague and this last set was the cherry on the cake.
Hi everybody and sorry for being late (better late than never..), I had a very busy day today
I am getting used again to being here on a more regular basis and it feels good I must say
It's a pleasant surprise to sit back after a long working day and find out that this last set with Lucy has been very well received by so many of you. I took the risk of not using clothes, just adding a touch of jewellery matching Lucy's (not really) hidden treasures, and it seems to have worked well. In effect, as per the set description, who needs clothes when you have such assets as Lucy? Less is more..
This set was shot in Prague 2 years ago, it was my last shooting there until few days ago, because as I wrote in previous comments I went back there and I happened to shoot with Lucy again and it has been a pleasant coincidence. Lucy has a different look now, light brown hair but still very long, and a gorgeous body. I will be glad to present our work together (3 sets for Metart and one for MetartX) soon.
Thank you all for the nice words for the set and for Lucy, I will pass the nicest ones next time I get in touch with her.
Looking forward to the next sets!
Hi NVKM alias my first fan.. so you were serious about it! And if this is being fanatic.. then fanatism is more than welcome!
Thanks again for the support, as I wrote you already that really boosts my inspiration and makes me look forward to new shootings.
I was just texting right now with Nancy and we might arrange a shooting soon.
Grazie per il sostegno!
Sono contento di avere un estimatore come te, per me il sostegno, la comprensione, l'entusiasmo sono fondamentali per trovare nuove energie e nuova ispirazione, quindi tu sei importante così come sono stati importanti gli altri fan che mi hanno sostenuto in questi 5 anni di Metart e che ormai considero amici.
Ho letto il tuo commento e la tua poesia su Celeste, le ho mandato un messaggio, se mi risponderà ti farò sapere.
Grazie ancora per le tue parole, ti aspetto lunedi per il mio prossimo set con Lucy Li.
Saturday, June 17th, 2017 on Presenting Isabela
Hi Phil, nice of you, I appreciate!
Hi Frank/swplf, it's good to read your posts here, like in the good old times..
Thanks for the precious & useful insights you give us through your stats and reflections, I look forward to the next..
JR, I can tell you that Isabela is still shooting and even does Sexart/Metart X styles, and that I have at least some 4 more sets with her, so hopefully we will see more of her
Hi Checkers, it's my pleasure and I look forward to bringing more sets with Isabela!
Hi Arkie! nice to hear from you!
You got it right about the natural light and the issues you list could be due to some factors: I don't usually decrease the standard contrast, might be that softening the shadows (which were a bit stronger on the right side due to the main light source on the right) might have produced an overall effect of a softer contrast.
The yellowish cast: on the images I edited and also on my monitor I don't see it, but it might be that when processed for the upload something has been modified in the image format/coding/color reference. Otherwise it could be due to the reflections on the roofs outside of the window, the apartment was on the top of a building higher than most buildings around and there were some brown roofs which reflected the afternoon light.
All valid points from your side, they show you really look at photos carefully and don't just stop on the surface. I'll be happy to give you more details/background whenever I can.
Thank you for the nice words about my work! I really appreciate!
Hi Berke88, always nice to read somebody who digs into the concept as well as the technical details of the set, thank you.
I hope I will be able to show you and the other viewers who seemed to like Isabel the other sets we shot together, in particular there is one on a swing that shows much more of her potential.
I totally agree on the post processing, and my work shows that I am a fan of natural beauty with the real skin texture, small tattooes and even peculiar imperfections. In this case you have noticed some post processing it's just because those days Isabela had some skin blemishes that would have distracted the viewer from her beauty, therefore I decided to make them disappear, especially for a debut set.
As I replied to some other comment, you will definitely find more athletic poses with fully spread legs in the next sets if I get a chance to have them published.
I'll be looking forward!
Hi kilroy, always nice to hear from you and find out what you think about my work and my models. I am glad you pointed out the shyness and flexibility of Isabel, I can tell you that in the other sets we shot the shyness will gradually fade away and the poses will show more of her incredible flexibility.
I can't agree more on the fact that we should see more beauties from Latvia (and other countries).. I'll work on it! I have recently shot models from Austria, Hungary and of course Czech Republic, hopefully you'll see them soon here.
And I'll be glad to relieve a bit Matiss with some more of my sets in the near future!
Cheers my friend!
è sempre un piacere trovare un connazionale con affinità artistiche in questo forum per appassionati di bellezza femminile ed erotismo, e sono contento di aver fatto una nuova conoscenza.
Grazie per le belle parole di apprezzamento di questo set in particolare e del mio stile fotografico e della mia poetica erotica, anche per le concessioni che faccio al bianco e nero e ad altre manipolazioni cromatiche che non tutti apprezzano o capiscono.
Sono davvero onorato di potermi dire il tuo fotografo preferito, e puoi stare sicuro che d'ora in poi avrò sempre un occhio di riguardo per i tuoi commenti e terrò conto delle tue osservazioni, perchè so che vengono da qualcuno che ha le mie stesse passioni e che si intende di questo meraviglioso mondo della fotografia erotica. Mi fa piacere che tu abbia avuto la possibilità di approfondire la 'conoscenza' di Veselin e se avrò la possibilità sarebbe interessante scattare con lei.
Now for you and all the other international viewers:
Lately I have had few sets available in the archives of Metart and the other network sites, but I can tell you that in the last months I have done several shootings and soon you will be hopefully able to see new sets with Arya, Cara Mell, Sybil, Lauren Crist, Lucy Li, Paula Shy and some new models from Austria, Hungary, Ukraine and Russia. Stay tuned!
Glad to hear that TH, and I can confirm that there are so many beautiful Latvian girls out there.. I will try to find a few more ;)
Yes Nick it's me, maybe the fact that the model was new and unexperienced gives you this impression, a photoset is always a team effort and I didn't want to force her in any way, I could see that she was on the right way but that takes some time. I hope you can find some good sides to the set anyway.
Always a pleasure to be back here with a set.
This one with Isabela brings me nice memories from my last shoot in Latvia already 2 years ago. The first shooting with this young and lovely girl, we enjoyed shooting together so much that we arranged two shootings in two days in different locations.
At the beginning she was a bit shy, it was the first time she was showing her intimate beauty on camera, but as the shooting progressed she became more open and confident, we also spoke about the perspective of appearing on Metart and she said she was excited about it and might even try more erotic styles. Now she will be happy to find out she made it here.
The set is completed by some black & white and some desaturated images in a soft natural light. I hope you enjoy it.
Beetle, happy to hear you enjoyed the unveiling of this new Latvian beauty, I can add that she is a really lovely girl, sweet and friendly, as well as flexible and athletic (she is a cheerleader too).
Bella poesia.. I will forward it to Celeste, she will be so pleasantly surprised...
Friday, June 16th, 2017 on Zaned
Hi Fozzinsky, comments like yours really motivate me because you got the point, it would be easier not to spend more time and effort after delivering the standard set, but I see there is more and I want to offer an additional perspective to the viewers like you who also appreciate another side of a beautiful naked woman in erotic poses, that's a more intimate, artistic, aesthetic one.
Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 on Zaned
Nice words for Celeste from you, NewEveryKinkyMe, I'll let her know
Hi Arkie, I am glad to hear that and you're perfectly light, in the backlit shots the B&W images result in a more effective contrast and work better.
Hi kilroy, I have also missed friends like you!
Nice to be back again today with a set of gorgeous Lucy.
As Frank (swplf) says the set dates back 2 years and 3 months ago when I was the last time in Prague for a shooting. First time with Lucy whom I wanted to show to Metart members because I thought she was not 'just' gorgeous and sexy but also beautiful and sweet and the intuition proved to be true as I can read in the comments.
I think that Lucy presented in the most natural and minimalistic way shows the true side of her who doesn't need strong make up or heavy photoshopping to look sexy.
That day we shot 4 sets for Met so you should see two more from our work together.
Right now I am on my way to Budapest for another long awaited shooting there (2 years) and the plan includes Cara Mell and other 4 new models I hope you'll be able to see soon.
Friday, May 26th, 2017 on Wimere
Arkie, that sounds like a good reason to arrange a new shooting.. ;) But I still have some sets from our following session in Rome somewhere..
Monday, April 24th, 2017 on Jenisy
Good point about the timeless Bettie Page, Ulysses. I am glad this set pleased you!
Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 on Jenisy
Hi JB, my friend, I am also happy to be a bit more often here in the last few months, it's still not much but you know my situation, at least I am 'alive' and hopefully soon I will bring more sets and more new models.
It's always great to hear that the connection with the model is visible, this is actually one of the things I care more about doing this 'hard job'..
very easy to thank you so much!
Hi Fozzinsky, I am very glad you liked today's set and it's nice to hear you'd like to see my work more frequently, I am working on providing more content which I hope you will see soon
Thank you The Seller!
nothing more to say
beetle = a fine beauty connaisseur!
I am glad you enjoyed this large set with stunning Melena, I will be happy to bring more!
My dear friend hipshot, I am always happy to hear from you and I was sure you would not miss the opportunity to emphasize the perfection of this natural born erotic model, I could not agree more with you about her pink perfection. I can tell you that during the sets Melena shows real excitement, if you know what I mean. I'll be happy to have more sets with Melena and other favorites of yours soon, there are some sets in the archives that K might use and I am also working on new sets as you know from my private updates to you and the others.
'till the next set!
Back as promised with some more information about this set.
Shot August 2014, my first shooting with Melena, took the opportunity to shoot with her while she was in Prague where I had planned my first shooting abroad after the famous misfortune after which I had all my photogear stolen. The first impression I had when I met Melena was very positive, she looked very professional, on time, with everything she needed for the shooting, with a lovely/sexy Russian accent in her fair English. I was struck by the clothes and accessories she took with her: everything colorful and fluo, especially pinks and yellows (you can see something in the last backstage photos).
That day we were supposed to shoot 4 sets but they went so smoothly that we extended until the evening shooting an extra 2 sets (most of them already pubished on MA and Errotica Archives, a couple for SA not yet). Sets of course were very easy to shoot with her, great poser and knowing how to make poses sexy and erotic. A natural born erotic model, you can see it easily. Also a playful girl, simple and down to earth, ideal to work with.
In this set in particular I wanted to shoe her colorful/playful side, so I asked her to choose a favorite outfit and she picked this pink one, then I added the sheer white fabric to let her play with it.
At the end of the session we agreed to have her coming to Rome later for another shooting together and that happened in October, it was a very nice experience for both and I am looking forward to the next opportunity to shoot with Melena again soon.
Thank you all once again for the nice words about the set.
Hi kilroy, nice to hear friendly voices like yours on the occasion of the few appearances I am doing lately.
Thank you for showing appreciation for this set, your opinion is always very welcome.
I will give shortly some additional information on the set as I used to be. About Frank, just like me he has also disappeared somehow from the network.. but I heard from him privately not long ago and despite he has been through hard times he is doing somewhat well, although could be better. I miss his long comments..
Arkie, thanks for this piece, a sign of respect for models and women in general. Certain poses don't help and sometimes skin looks worse than it actually is, but beauty goes beyond skin stretches.
Since you asked Melena at the time of this shooting (2014) was 24 according to her actual age. More information in my background comment.
Hi everybody, what a nice surprise to see this set with stunning Melena today on Met. Thank you all for the nice words for the model and for our work together, I will come back later today to give some background information on the shooting.
Always glad to see work from you Ken, well done! and Mango is incredibly sexy, I should really arrange a shooting with her.. ;)

..And of course SEXART, not Desert... (Damn auto correction..)
Wednesday, March 29th, 2017 on Decale
*when she gets NAKED*, not named..
As promised here is some background on this set with Anita.
It was shot in the Spring of 2 years ago in Budapest, Hungary, second session with this adorable petite model. Actually we were supposed to finish the shooting with the preceding set but we had really enjoyed it so we went for an extra set.
Anita is a really adorable girl, she almost looks shy - when she has clothes on - but when she gets named she unleashes all her powerful eroticism and becomes a sex bombshell. Her English is fair, but communicating with her is easy because her green eyes can almost speak themselves.
Also from this session are two sets already published here on Met and one on Desert. I still have sets from our first shooting which I am now considering for submission to be published here since you members seem to like Anita.
Thank you all for the nice words of appreciation for the model and for our set, looking forward to having more sets and new models published again soon.
Welcome all, it's good to be back again this time with lovely Anita.
I will come back later for some background on this set.
Although this is not officially one of my sets I'd like to jump in with some background.
This set was shot in team by my friend Peter Guzman and myself in 2011, Mia had just started nude modeling few months before and I convinced her to go for something more erotic. I had not started submitting my work to Metart yet so I arranged a team shoot with Peter and he was happy to do it.
We were in a quiet apartment in Brno, eastern Czech Republic, it was a very nice shooting and I remember Mia being shy and insecure about open poses but learning fast.
Also the set 'Puella' was shot on this occasion.

I am honored to hear this, Nick101, it motivates me to do more and have more sets published.
I have also missed interacting with members and with you, my friend. As you say, I have little time but I am trying hard to find some to br back here and produce some new content soon
Thank you for the nice, very welcome comment about beauty and special models with that inner something, so true.
Wr'll talk again soon!

Glad to hear this! always nice to hear appreciation for the B&W extra also.
Tuesday, March 14th, 2017 on Atoro
Wow XOXO! what a compliment! I feel honored!
Arkie, thanks for the kind words!
Btw, there are some sets of Sapphira shot in window lighting somewhere in the archives, sooner or later you will see them ;)
Hey hottr, who could ever imagine you would make me glad for a while...?
kilroy, my friend, one of the reasons I enjoyed being back on Met today was because I've heard from friends like you who always gave me motivation back in the good old times. On top of that, I am very happy you liked this set with goddess Sapphira, one of the most beautiful, sweet and lovely models I've ever met.
Looking forward to the next time, hopefully soon, also with new work planned in the upcoming weeks.
THank you for appreciating Sapphira in our work together Oohlala, I am happy I met your expectations for a set with such a beautiful creature.
Glad to hear this Five O, it was an inspired shooting I must say, and it's great that the set shows it.
Hi Dreadnought69, nice to hear from you again especially with such kind and enthusiastic words! my pleasure!
Hi Arkie, you're right of course, this is from the archives and since you asked here is the info you are interested in.
This was shot in June 2014, my second shooting with the stunning and lovely Sapphira, in Prague. A few sets from that same shooting have already been published on Met and also on Sexart, with a twin set in the same setting. I have great memories of that shooting and the beautiful weather with good natural lighting in the apartment.
As per technical aspects, I remember I used mostly a 50mm/1.4 lens.
I hope this answers your question!
Thank you my friend, it's my pleasure to be able to present such a beauty as Sapphira in another set appreciated by you tasteful viewers.. Nice to be back once in a while
I was sure you would appreciate Checkers... you may check out what other models wore this mini dress, I must say that it's a pretty lucky dress and you still haven't seen all the sets shot with it.
Hi beetle, very happy this set has several things you liked, I would say that with Sapphira it's easy.. but not always obvious unless there is a special mix of factors that leads to an overall very erotic and pleasant set. Thanks
Hi everybody, it feels so good to be back from time to time and read words of appreciation for the work.
I will take a moment later today to reply to some of the comments asking some information and add some background.
Many thanks LB, I am very glad you enjoyed it.
Tuesday, January 24th, 2017 on Folme
Hello everybody, it's good to have this set released today, as you may notice it dates back to some years ago during the first collaborations with Mia, it was a fantastic day shooting in nature with a unique model.

Hi Knackers/Bobblehat, nice to hear from you. YOu're right about Lucy... And for Sally, you might finally see more of her this year ;)

It's good to be back with a set.
Thank you all for the words of appreciation.
This was my very first set shot with Lucy, I have kept it in my archives for a while and I am glad that K published it today.
I hope to appear more often on Met this year.
Happy 2017 to all of you.

What should she say about me, excuse me? I thought it was her interview. Anyway I am glad I am in your thoughts..
Saturday, October 8th, 2016 on Shy MetArt beauty Vanessa Angel opens up!
I really appreciate your post my friend, a great overview and insight, even for me that already know much about Lucy. Thank you for the always welcome nice words and interesting analisys.
Thursday, May 12th, 2016 on Tipica
Thank you 5Seadog, that's nice
I've been waiting to have my second set with Lucy on Met, and although it's from over a year ago as swplf2 says I can perfectly remember the atmosphere, the mood and all the details of that shooting. It was my first shooting with Lucy, but I had already the feeling that she would be welcomed how she deserved by Met members after seeing her potential on SA. I thought that she could be a star on both websites because she not only she is a sex bomb with a gorgeous body, but she is also a beautiful girl with marvellous pair of... eyes and.. well, no need to say what else, you have your own eyes.
Before arranging the shooting I actually asked for 'approval' by my circle of supporters and they all believed bringing Lucy to Met was a great idea.
Getting to know Lucy and finding out that she is a sweet and nice girl made me and my wife love her since the very first moment, therefore the shooting was even more pleasant than usual.
There are still 2 sets for Met and one for Sex I shot with Lucy on that day and I am looking forward to showing them to you soon.
Thank you all for the nice words for Lucy and our work together, it's always good to get sweet reward for some inspired pleasant work.
It's a real privilege to have contributed to Mia's Metart history with the joining of this prestigious club.
We had our very first shooting in November 2010 and the last one (so far) in June 2015, and every time it's been a special moment.
Mia is a unique creature, with opposites meeting in an unexpected harmony.
Thanks to Frank and Rose for this well deserved celebration of a real top model.

Friday, April 8th, 2016 on Cinoe
My 16th set with Lauren on Metart.. also one of my personal favorite ones, because of the attitude Lauren shows, the lighting, the poses, the overall mood... It is currently the last one shot more than one year ago, after a long professional break with Lauren due to some 'external interferences' which had been clarified before this shooting. It has been said many times about the special connection between us and I can't avoid mentioning it once again because it's one of the factors driving our shootings and that really shows in the pictures.
In this set we wanted to create a lazy awakening of a girl next door with a playful sexy attitude and I must say that Lauren totally delivered it.
It's always a privilege to appear on Metart, I have been through a very intense period but now I am ready to contribute more with all the sets I still had to submit and new ones coming. I have just arranged a shooting with Taylor Sands who seems to be a lovely sweet girl and I really look forward to find out and show you the results of our upcoming collaboration.
Thank you all for the very nice words, very rewarding, as always.
Thursday, April 7th, 2016 on Cinoe
I'm honored to take Mia into this prestigious Hall of Fame just created by Met from an idea shared by Frank/swplf2, it was something we needed to give the right tribute to those models who have made or are still making Metart history.
As already written by some of the members this set dates back to the late summer of 2011, when Mia had not even been shooting for a year and few days after her debut on Met. It was already our 3rd shooting together and we already had a very good connection. She was not yet the super professional experienced sexy model she has become now, but I could see she had a great talent and despite her sweet shyness she was great in expressing a sweet eroticism.
This set in particular was shot in the Roman countryside in a sweet afternoon, we walked to this nice spot in the woods where the afternoon sunbeams were lighting the dark green underbush, and this golden light on Mia's pale skin made her standout gloriously. I am very glad that the setup and the lighting choice have been appreciated by several members, outdoor shooting is more challenging than indoor and whenver the results are good it is twice rewarding.
Lastly I can confirm that there are a few more sets with Mia in the archives and that I am going to submit also the last ones left from our latest shooting last summer.
Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016 on Gaturi
I have just prepared the new submissions, I must say that I love them, the follow up to this set will be worth waiting for it ;)
Tracy lying in bed on a lazy morning..
Saturday, March 12th, 2016 on Presenting Tracy Smile
Thank you bobblehat, glad to hear you like the choice.
Note taken about Emylia... ;)
I am happy to see Tracy debut today with the set we shot in Prague last year, I have been looking forward to seeing how much you members would appreciate her smile (there must be a reason for her stagename) and her perfect body, with a pair of the most beautiful breasts I have ever photograph (the others being probably Lucy Li's).
Tracy is a sweet sexy girl, down-to-earth and enthusiastic about being an erotic model, no surprise our shooting was a very pleasant one.
We actually shot another two sets that day, so I guess that I should also submit them too if you want to see more of Tracy soon. I had been wondering if besides her Sexart work she would be well received also on Metart, and I think I have the answer now :)
never mind Checkers... ;)
Sunday, February 28th, 2016 on Borolla
I wrote to Vanessa and she was very happy to find out about our set being published today, and she loved reading your nice comments, she always gets surprised of how much she is liked by you members. We spoke about planning a new shooting and she is willing to do it soon, and so am I.
Hi Fenway, glad you are one of the admirers of Vanessa's sweet smile, it's also irresistable to me. Your remark is very interesting now that I think about it.
Although Vanessa doesn't shoot lesbian scenes a soft set for Metart with her and Paula is theoretically possible, why not. They actually met at a shooting earlier that year, in Prague.
very nice comment from you hipshot, it really describes Vanessa's essence in a superb way.
you're right hipshot, and I am REALLY looking forward to it. New lovely additions in new inspiring settings may be coming this year.
Hi ziggyzaq, it's nice to hear from a new member, I believe it's the first time you comment on one of my sets? Thank you for the nice words for the work Vanessa and I did. I am glad there is one more member who appreciates photography also in its classics as well as experiments, that's a great challenge for me.
fer, with such a beauty as the therapist you would go crazy even if you're not..
The 'butterfly effect' Vanessa delivers is something that can perturb our minds but I guess everybody would be more than happy to pay the price.
And more than happy am I adding another chapter to Vanessa's history on Metart, hoping it will last long.
The sunshine is out of my window now, Rocky.. I should really call Vanessa and organise our next shooting right away... So really lovable.. just adorable
Hi again CZM, The Girl Next Door is here visiting and she brought nothing but herself.. The Spring is getting closer and gives me inspiration for showing new models in full bloom soon.
Yes The Seller, it'd doesn't even feel real... Twice in a row with two of my favorite models.. It should happen more often!
I can see from your inspired poetry that you were really touched by this appearance... and Vanessa may really come back soon, another sensual set is waiting already...
All correct Frank/swplf2. I expanded on the background story in my post.
It's nice that Vanessa has only agreed to shoot with me and my friend Ken Tavos, as I wrote she really needs to be comfortable and trust the photographer.
I have several other sets for Metart and also a few ones for Sexart with Vanessa, I am working on them these days so hopefully you will all be enjoying her again in one month or so if K agrees.
It's agreeable Dark Storm, in effect given the overall blandness of the setting and the mood, when doing the post-production I went in the direction of emphasizing the flat tone range of the colors with a little bit colder white balance instead of increasing the saturation or warmth. That was the peculiarity I wanted the set to have, but I reckon it may result in something not so much appreciated. It's a matter of choices, you know, therefore they mat be not always liked. But I appreciate the fact you expressed a fair (and agreeable, indeed) opinion which shows how attentively you look at the images.
I'm flattered kmkronful.. thank you for the wishes along with the nice words and consideration, I will do my best to deserve that..
My 11th posting with Vanessa on Met, currently my 3rd most featured model after Lauren Crist and Sunshine.
As I have been repeating at every opportunity, Vanessa is the perfect model to work with and of course a personal favorite of mine. We consider ourselves friends rather than just into a photographer-model relationship, and I always try to show in the pictures with the relaxed atmosphere and the openness (in every meaning) Vanessa yields when we shoot.
This set, as remarked by Frank/swplf2, was shot in June 2014 in Rome, few days after my shooting in Prague where I shot for the first time Nici Dee (featured in yesterday's set). The idea to plan the shooting in Italy came on Easter earlier that year, I was having a pic-nic in a beautiful park in Rome and sent a message to Vanessa, telling her that it would have been great to have her there those warm and sunny days. Vanessa had been living some disappointments in her life at that time, and maybe the idea to break away from the cold and grey weather of Prague and take a breath of Italian lifestyle gave her a sweet smile and she took the decision to travel. So we finally arranged it and there she was. The set was shot at our home, in a very relaxed atmosphere, a very simple and mild setting, with nothing but Vanessa in the focus of my lens and mind. She is so sweet and delicate, a beautiful flower who opens only when she feels safe and comfortable, and that is a real pride for me.
This set also has a bitter-sweet feeling because the following month during my trip to Prague all my photogear was stolen on the way back, after shooting several models including Vanessa again. Now that all the equipment has been replaced the only thing that hurts is the fact that those sets (with Vanessa, Sapphira, Dido A, Paula Shy, Celeste at her first shooting and a newcomer) are lost forever. But I still dream of repeating the shooting in the same location with the same models. But there will always be a 'before' and an 'after'.
I can agree ergo, althoug if you consider only on the regular color pics you have 150 which is just 30 more than the standard. In certain cases 'melius abundare quam deficere' ;)

I am loving tennis now... a sport for gentlemen...
5Seadog, such words from someone I respect so much are so rewarding.. Thank you. And Nici is surely fabulous!
Hi hotte! nice to hear from you! I've been missing your absolutely objective and unbiased verdicts, always focusing on beauty, harmony, eroticism, technical topics, and showing your politeness and respect for models, photographers and other members. Looking forward to your next creative comment!
P.S. funny joke about follow-up sets.. can't stop laughing!
I also approached art with B&W with charcoal and pencil drawings, it was much later when I started with colours (pastels and oil color painting), I can't help seeing a beautiful subject both ways.
Hi kilroy, yes it feels so good to be back here, and tomorrow again.
Having a 'fan club' is such a honour and all the members are so special to me, invaluable.
I may not be one of the most productive (or talented, some would say) photographers on Metart - so many masters to learn from - but creating that intimate feeling and being able to show it in my pictures is proudly one of my trademarks, along maybe with the use of natural light whatever it may take and also the bonus of the B&W and desaturated images.
About Lauren, we are always in touch and when I start with new shootings she will surely be one of the models I'd love to have in front of my lenses anytime. By the way, I still have 4 or 5 sets for Metart (and 3-4 for Sexart) with her in my archives, I will submit them to K soon so hopefully until then you will have something ready to see soon.
The sweetest killer... You're totally right Rose, Nici makes us want to see more of her and this set published today (Thank you K!) makes me want to work on the 4 MA sets with Nici I still have from our latest shooting in Rome and I just found out I still have a Sexart set too! :)
Thank you 5Seadog, your consideration honours me.. I am also glad to be back
Honoured once again... Videos are one of my next challenges, I had to delay quite a lot because when I was about to start 2 yrs ago shit happened.. but I haven't quit the project ;)
Honoured of such a bias, kmkronful... I hope you will be satisfied after seeing it. You give me one more reason to submit a couple more sets I have with Nici from our last shooting, as for now there is another ready to publish, hopefully soon.
Hi fer, nice to find you here today and great to hear you remarking the same features I wanted to highlight in this set :)
Hi The Seller!
As a seller you really seem to appreciate art.. I am very happy to hear your words of appreciation for Nici and our set together, as you may have noticed I was almost staring at her while shooting.. such a beauty...
Hi Neil, I am honoured you still would like to see more from me, that really motivates me to do more and get the time to bring you and the others more beauties soon. I will be ready soon!
Frank (swplf2), your 'standard' post, with plenty of background information, stats and assessments feels like being back in the time I was here much more often. There have been two big breaks in my Metart history, one due to a very bad thing and the other one, most recent, to a very good story, but what has not changed is the relationship with members like you and the others who are also commenting here today or have been taking advantage of the last few sets to let me know how they appreciate my work and the models I bring to you.
If every I have a doubt whether it's the case to think of quitting or not then I have no more doubts when I read the words of you all and suddenly find more inspiration, new ideas and challenging projects. Thank you my friend(s).
Glad you liked the feel of the set, it was exactly how it was in reality and I wanted to transmit it to the viewer. You're right when you note that there might be some repetitions, I took the risk of a slow strip tease playing with small changes and look in the eyes of Nici, that was on the purpose but since I loved all the poses I kept many pics although similar to others. I must have been hypnotized by Nici's beauty and eroticism..
Ahoj CZM, so glad to find you here like in the old times, it sounds so good to be welcomed and know that you are looking forward to see my work here again soon, I will work harder to be up to speed again and delight you and the other faithful beauty admirers.
It feels so nice to be back twice in less than two weeks, with Nici today and Vanessa tomorrow. It's two sets dating back June 2014, 'the last days of innocence' before the shock of seeing all my photogear and some 30 new sets stolen, as Frank/swplf2 notes.
This is one out of 4 sets shot that late Spring days in Prague with Nici, it was our first shooting and we had a great feeling since the very first moment. We shot 4 sets for Met, two of them being already published (Qantry and Mireso) and the last one ready to be published somewhen in the future.
We enjoyed the shooting so much that we soon arranged another one in Rome in August, as also Frank remarks.
This set was an extremely relaxed one, we had already shot 3 other sets on that day and the chemistry was already there. A simple location and a girl-next-door look with a slow strip tease intriguing the viewer.
Going back with the mind to those is a bitter-sweet memory, but part of my history by now.
Thank you all for keeping to appreciate my work although I haven't been shooting in the last months for personal reasons, but being present on Met with a set is always a great opportunity to keep the work alive and get inspiration to plan new shootings with new models (and the very favorite 'old' ones) very soon.
That's great news K! I am very glad to hear this, thank you for planning this set with Vanessa, I guess it's either the one with the golden body-lace or the one with her laying on the sofa. I am really looking forward! and I have more sets of Vanessa I'll submit soon.
Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 on Resina
I am very gald to be back with such a sweetheart like Csilla after such a long time. I am grateful to K for picking up one of the sets from the archives, as some of you already I have been having very little time in the past months to dedicate to photography and also to tide up my archives.
But lately I forced myself to do it and hopefully in the next weeks you will see some sets which may be a bit more than 2 yrs old as well as some only few months old, since my last shooting dates back to last June by now. But I will soon start shooting again new sets with new models and a few of my favorite ones I already worked with.
Thanks to all those of you who have been waiting to see more of my work and those friends who always support me no matter what happens.
I look forward to the next set being published.
Tuesday, February 16th, 2016 on Resina
Hi DS, nice to be back here and I am glad to read your words of appreciation, looking forward to many more sets to show!
Friday, January 22nd, 2016 on Lygenca
I like your description of the set and its focus, which is truly Lauren's beauty, wherever she may be posing and whatever she may be wearing (and taking off..).
Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 on Lygenca
Billyboy, it's just some accessory that I thought would fit the setting and match the black/white outfit on the black chaise longue. Lauren liked the idea since she proposed to wear those shoes in particular, but I understand you may have different tastes, there are so many sets with Lauren that you will surely find sets with her not wearing heels.
I can only confirm 100%!
Hi hipshot, here we are after 1 month from my last set with Elen Moore, shot in the same apartment this set was also shot.
I am glad to read your description of what Lauren inspires in these pictures, all true. And I was sure you would have liked the last 2 candid shots of Lauren on a break, you can really see her down-to-earth, warm attitude.
Thank you for wishing for more work from me, I hope I will be able to fulfill your wish soon!
Hi Neil, my friend! I have to thank you for the rewarding words about the set with Lauren and for highlighting this milestone for me :)
Hi 5Seadog! so nice to hear from you after a while!
Yours is a good point.. Met models' civic minds are never to underestimate ;)
Thank you Rose :) Lauren's elegant eroticism is a trademark..;)
Thank you my friend! I am already working on the next 100... ;)
Hi kilroy! thank you for jumping in and 'celebrating' nr. 100 on MA with me :)
Your nice words are much appreciated, as always. Looking forward to sharing the next set soon!
Thank you Frank for underlining the 'event'. These milestones like a hundred sets published on Metart are very meaningful to me and motivate me do more and better. But what motivates and inspires me even more is the support I always get from you and the many other friends who always have nice words of appreciation of the models I portray and our photographic work together.
The stats about Lauren are very interesting, as usual.
Thank you my friend!
Who better than a model like Lauren to celebrate my 100th set on Metart?
It's nice to be back again here and hear you members with your comments, tastes, preferences, admiration, daydreams..
As swplf2/Frank wrote this set was shot during my latest trip to Prague that dates almost a year ago, which was also my latest session with Lauren.
No need to write more about her great attitude during the shootings, her natural eroticism and her professionalism, everybody knows by now.
I must confess that I'm missing being on Met on more regular basis and with more sets, but the last 6-7 months have been so very busy for me with several significant changes in my life so it hasn't been possible, but I am counting in being more present starting from the next month, with the help of K.. Thanks to all those who have been looking forward to more sets from me, I hope I will be soon able to meet your expectations.
Althouh 19 days late I wish you all a wonderful new year!
very happy to hear this hipshot, thank you for relaying this pleasant message!
Sunday, December 27th, 2015 on Sonta
Dear Frank/swplf, I have been missing your posts in the last months, so with this one I can really say that the set can be considered complete, after reading from most of the regular commentators, all pleasing me with rewarding words about Elen and our set.
Despite not having published as much as I wished (but there are very good reasons behind this) I am very satisfied about this 2015 in terms of sets published and feedback received. It would be great to have the 100th set published before the end of the year, maybe with one of my new models, or another set with Melena. I am also counting on having some more sets for Sexart submitted and start again to collaborate with The Life Erotic. That's my resolution, considering that I will not have plenty of time it would be already great.
Monday, December 21st, 2015 on Sonta
Hi bobblehat, it's a pleasure to have pleased you with this set portraying stunning Elen. She really has some legs to show, and heels are always a sexy prop that really fit.
The fact that there are no candid shots in the extra is only due to the fact that when I shoot a new model I usually wait for her to be comfortable even for the bacstage shots, and being this our first set together I didn't take photos of the preparation, I was concentrated on setting up and conceiveing the photoset. But you can be sure that whenever I have candid images I always include them ;)
Hey kilroy, so nice to hear from you after so long. I have also been away, not being able to comment on a regular basis, and also not having a lot of sets to be published, but hopefully next year I will find my pace again and be more present. A Merry Christmas to you my friend.
Thank you fer, I am glad this set is like a gift. Happy holidays to you too.
Today's set with Elen was shot during my last sessions in Prague last jan/feb when I shot also Lauren, Vanessa, Lucy Li, Celeste and Tracy Smile. Elen looked very professional since the beginning, she had been modeling in fashion already a few years and I could see she was experienced, although not much in erotic. Before we started and also throughout our shooting we spoke about her close friend Mia Sollis, who probably influenced her decision of finally going erotic. At the beginning she looked a bit cold (like the weather outside, a white winter in Prague) but soon she but she became more and more comfortable as we went on shooting our 3 or 4 sets, getting to know each other better and she turned out to be a nice, down to earth and smart redhead. After the shooting she was also willing to get some previews of our photosets and when I sent them to her she was enthusiastic about them. I have at least other 2 sets with Elen, and I must thank K for giving her a try and one of her greatest fans (senior MA member hipshot131) for convincing me that it was worth giving her a chance to make it in the Metart universe.
With my 99th set on Metart, unless I get the chance to have another one published before the end of the year, I wish all Metart members, models and staff the merriest Christmas and a wonderful 2016, full of beauty and dreams!
A quick stop for some backgrounder.
This set is from the latest shooting with Lauren, last February in Prague, after a year and a half we hadn't had the opportunity to shoot together.
It was very pleasant meeting again and our moods were particularly good. During the breaks Lauren and my wife would chat lovingly about the past months, mostly travels, work and shopping, and it really felt like meeting a friend, not just for shooting some erotic pictures. In this set Lauren was in a great mood and we looked for an outfit that would make the overall feel of the set relaxed and with a girl-next-door flavour.
We both really enjoyed the shooting, and no surprise Lauren is one of my all time favorite models and even a friend by now.
I am glad to read so many words of appreciation for such a wonderful creature.
Monday, December 7th, 2015 on Yinera
Hi fer! I'll surely tell her, writing her now ;) also for me it's nice to be back in the comments and find my MA friends ;)
Saturday, November 28th, 2015 on Frisura
you're right Baggy, Vanessa can still look shy even in the most erotic poses.. and more sets with her will come ;)
I am glad you enjoyed it beetle!
yes Baggy... don't worry, it's just so far, we will collaborate more. We actually chatted few days ago looking forward to our next shooting, and there are more sets I am about to send for Met and also Sexart
Hi hipshot, nice to hear from you and on the special occasion of the last set by Vanessa. Thank you for highlighting Vanessa's extraordinary inner beauty which equals her more visible, external one. And thank you for reminding that the b&w photos are an extra free to be seen or not.
My 10th set with Vanessa reveals a sexier and more sophisticated side of hers we are not used to see. The long dress and the glass of wine add an eroticly provocative note to the sweet attitude and girl-next-door look Vanessa has shown us so far, I was curious to see how she would look like and we both liked the result. We shot this set in an elegant apartment in Prague last February, so far the last shooting we had but always looking forward to the next opportunity, we are often in touch even just for chatting rather than speaking about shootings, she is such a lovely girl and we consider ourselves friends by now.
A set shot last May in Latvia. Mira is a beautiful, sweet, nice girl and a great model. I got to know her a bit more during a 2-days shooting and I discovered a real tresure of a girl: she really enjoys posing and smiling is so natural to her, but also she has a sensitive and nice personality that you can't help loving her. In fact I enjoyed our first shooting so much that I asked her to come again to shoot in a couple of days, and we also shot some sets for Sexart which I hope you will be able to see shortly.

Thank you kilroy, this is very gratifying for us, I'm pleased this set ia one of your favorites.
Monday, October 19th, 2015 on Mirida
One of my latest sets with the adorable Vanessa Angel, shot in Prague in the winter. I have just a little time for a quick comment but I don't want to miss the opportunity to say once again how much I love working with this model, she is a very sweet and fragile girl and it's always a very nice experience shooting together, and I look forward to the next opportunity.
As hipshot says from "her big brown eyes to her Mona Lisa smile to her delicate figure and gentle presence Vanessa is easy to fall for".
Thank you all for the nice words for this angel, she deserves it.
I am sorry I've not been able to comment lately but I really have no time to do it. Anyway I am very glad to see that in the last days I've had several sets published after a significant absence.
This set with the sweet Anita was shot in the Spring earlier this year, during my latest shooting in Budapest. It was our second time together and I totally loved it. Anita is a real doll and she is irresistable, looking innocent, sexy and nasty at the same time.
I have shot other sets with Anita and I hope to be able to submit them to K as soon as I get some time to do it.
Thank you all for the gratifying comments, I am looking forward to being back to comment on a regular basis again.

Two sets in a row, doesn't happen very often, and the pleasure doubles when I have a set with Lauren, definitely one of my favourite models. As Frank/swplf remarked I have many sets with her, this is my 13th, and although it's been shot 2 years ago there are still more sets from our collaboration still to come.
It was a warm september and Lauren joined me, my wife and our cat in a nice villa in the countryside north of Rome, also a friend from Australia was in the team those days.
The relaxed and happy atmosphere of those days is reflected in the eyes and the poses of Lauren, as many of you have noticed. It was a special time and we still remember those days as very pleasant.
I haven't hear from Lauren for a few months now but I don't think she's stopped shooting erotic, she has always been very willing to shoot and her partner supported her.
Although the last weeks I didn't have much opportunities for shooting and even retouching previous sets shot in the first half of the year I look forward to meet Lauren and shoot again.
I will relay the nice comments here to her tonight.
Thank you all for appreciating the teamwork in this set.

You're right fer_realz, they're my make up & hair team in Latvia
Two Latvian models today, Jessie and Raena, and hopefully more to come!
Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 on Levinum
It's nice to be back after quite a long time since my last comment.
I am very busy these days, many changes (good ones this time) in my life and not much time left for new sets and replying ot comments, but I will take some time to give my usual feedback on this set.
Frank/swplf2 has already anticipated that this set has been last year in November during my first trip to Latvia, where I got in touch with MA artist Balius, who had some models to suggest. I liked Jessie after seeing her in some casting photos, she looked a little shy and had a fresh look, my favorite type of models. When she came at the shooting I found out that it was her second shooting, the very fisrt had been with Balius not long before, and this was the first set of the session for us. I liked the idea of showing Jessie the way she really is, so I didn't ask for big smiles and too much explicit/flexible poses (although she is actually flexible). The way she appears in this first set is what I expected, and I also got several images which were good for my black & white gallery. I was lucky with the light since it was one of the rare moments of the day where the sun was shining, in the morning before getting lost in the clouds over Riga.
I shot more sets that day with Jessie, and set after set she also got more comfortable and learned how to smile more.
As Frank has said I went to Riga again after some months and shot more new models. I have just prepared 3 more sets with new Latvian models taht I hope you will enjoy here soon.
Thank you all for the nice and interesting comments, I look forward to the next opportunity.
Thank you all for the nice words of appreciation for the set and the beautiful Sapphira.
We shot this set almost one year ago by now, but I remember clearly. We had just changed location within Prague, from a classic liberty style hotel room to a more modetn apartment where the bed created a colorful and vivid setting. Sapphira proposed to use some matching make up and picked up one of her sexy outfits. The shooting was smooth and pleasant as always, she is an incredibly professional model and one of the cutest and sweetest girls I've ever met, and we enjoyed the day. This is our last shooting so far but useless to say I look forward to the next time.
Sorry for not responding comments a lot lately but it's a very busy period in my life, but I always at least take the time to read everything you members write. Thank you so much.

thank you KK, glad to hear that
Friday, July 24th, 2015 on Cesoi
Hi Arkie, thank you for being a fan of mine.. I am honored!
About the B&W and desaturated images, they were all created in post production, since I shoot in RAW. The differences you may notice from the color to the manipulated images are due to my personal manipulation of the parameters depending on the taste I want to give to certain image, and sometimes I act on the single color casts to emphasize some parts of the picture.
I hope your curiosity was fulfilled, looking forward to hearing from you again.
Too busy to comment earlier, sorry.
This set with Paula was shot in Prague last year in August, when I was still having some problems with my gear after the July trouble, so it felt good to shoot with a model like Paula, whom I have been knowing since her very first shooting back in November 2012. Our first sets were actually shot for Sexart and TLE and only after a long time she finally was introduced to Metart (not by me thoug). As I have already written several times she is a very sweet girl, enthusiastic about shooting and actually looking very shy sometimes, always smiling. At the first shooting that shyness was evident, so it was no surprise that was her stagename, but after shooting several times with her I have noticed that once she takes off her clothes the shyness suddenly disappears.
About the setting, I chose this very simple background with the contrast between the black sofa and the white walls so that the pink lingerie and Paula's exotic skintones would be highlighted. I used this same location also for a Sexart set with Sapphira that I hope you will get to see soon.
Thank you all for the nice words of appreciation of this set with gorgeous Paula, I will be glad to bring more of her on Met.

MESSAGE FROM LUCY
(after letting her know about the nice comments by members on our set):Hiiii! Wow thank you for congratulations! Nice :)
I'm looking forward to our next shooting! :)
I'm glad that members like me :)
Have a nice summer!!!
Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015 on Presenting Lucy Li
Hi DS, yes I have other sets ready or to be approved, I will work on them as soon as I have some time. I am glad to hear you are interested in Sunshine, she is a unique model.
Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015 on Corna
Ken, I really enjoyed seeing this set of one of my Muses shot by you.
When I suggested you shot her I was hoping you would enjoy the sweet personality and understated eroticism of this little gem, and what I see in this set is you and her having fun shooting a very clean erotic set with perfect photos. I can tell Vanessa is very relaxed and comfortable, she must have really enjoyed the shoot.
Btw, congratulations for your interview on the blog! I just found the time to read it and I really loved it, well done my friend!
Tuesday, July 21st, 2015 on Quella
Congratulations Ken, my friend! welcome in the club!
Very smart and interesting interview, with a great job by both you answering and by Rose asking the right questions. Well done!
Tuesday, July 21st, 2015 on Ken Tavos: interview with a MetArt artist
that's quite a a privileged view will..
Tuesday, July 21st, 2015 on Corna
A good perspective to see the set from DS, it really gives the idea of the feel of the whole set, and that was actually what I wanted to be sensed.
I am happy you enjoyed it.
Aren't you forgetting Prague and Budapest guys..? That's where most of the girls Ken and I shoot are from, so they wouldn't have to travel a lot... and it's not far from Germany by the way CZM ;)
Hi again RedPilot. I actually haven't met much people through Met yet (so far only Ken Tavos, Balius, Peter Guzman and of course Ariel Piperfwand already before she started directing), but I am in constant touch with several members also out of Metart on social networks, so we have virtually met..
About yuor proposal.. not a bad idea indeed... an international Met..ing. Next year...? I'm in!
P.S. Yesterday I answered your technical comment on Lucy Li's set, go check if you didn't.
Hi Josef, welcome in the thread. I am glad to read you liked the choice of such easy start with a normal and relaxed situation leading slowly to a sexy development. I can't but agree.. she is so amazing!
Hi Sydney! welcome back in one of my sets. I also thank you for showing appreciation.. ;) This is one of the set which satisfied me the most, every time it seems to get better with Lauren.
Hi 5seadog, nice to hear from you again so shortly. You're right, all models have a sensuality of their own, and when you have the chance to get to know some of them a bit deeper than that sensuality shows even more.
I'll be glad and honored to bring here more sets with the fabulous girl, stardust
She usually has her head in the clouds... always forgetting to put something on... And I will always be there to document everything in order to analyze her mistakes again and again... (dirty job..)
Hi CZM, I am honored to be considered like this by you, Lauren is a special model and having the privilege of such special chemistry between us makes me feel very lucky, willing to show her unique beauty to their admirers like you under a special intimate light.
Hi Robert! thank you for the nice words! It feels good :)
I will be glad to go on adding the extras whenever possible, as long as you and many other members seem to appreciate the effort.
Hi fer, it's very nice to read you could see Lauren's fun side, she is so sexy that sometimes she forgets she's also a girl who likes to have fun and laugh by heart and it's good we showed another of her qualities to you all.
I am always very glad whenever I get the chance to shoot Lauren and I am already looking foward to the next time.
Yeah Checkers... who would believe you hadn't noticed... come on, we know you...;)
Hi monkeryma! yes she's hot and although we were in the middle of winter it was damn hot in the room! ;)
Hi Neil, thank you for the nice words for Lauren and our work in this set. I've just written in my background info why there are no monochromes, sorry.
Happy to hear you liked the outfit and Lauren's performance bobblehat.
Hi ergo, unfortunately I didn't have the time to prepare them when I sent the set, but I will keep on adding some BWs whenever I can, I am glad you are one of those who like them.
Hi hipshot, nice to hear from you. I know that bodacious models like Lucy the other day was not your cup of tea but I was sure you would be back for Lauren. I am glad you could see the connection between us in the images.
Sorry for delay.
Here is my 12th set with Lauren for Met, the second most present model after Sunshine.
What to say about Lauren that I haven't already said. Everybody knows by now that she is one of my favorite models, the ideal model, great professional and very sweet and down-to-earth girl.
This set was shot in Prague last February, our most recent shooting after a break of a year and a half. It was a very pleasant shooting for my wife and I, seeing Lauren after some time and finding the same girl we used to know.
She did her own make up (she is a very good self-make-up artist) and as an outfit for the set I asked her to wear something classy but simple so we went for that white minidress and matching heels. The atmosphere was very relaxed and intimate, as it shows in the pictures. As some of the members have noticed we have a high level of confidence and I wanted this special intimacy to be felt also by the viewers, in order to make them feel as closer as possible to Lauren.
This set has no extras unfortunately, but not because of the critiques of those who don't like them, I just didn't have time to add them when it was about to upload the set and I didn't do it afterwards. I am sorry for those who appreciate them, I will try to make a further effort next times and add some at least.
Hi Arkie2, I'm glad you are an estimator of the black & whites
Monday, July 20th, 2015 on Presenting Lucy Li
Hi The Seller, good to see you here with such an enthusiastic appreciation of Lucy's super sexy features, I am glad my photography did her justice.
Looking forward to showing the next sets (a red top with white shorts on a sofa, a bathrobe on bed, nude with just a necklace on a table for Metart and then with her underwear in bed for Sexart)
Hi Frank, I am grateful you gave my choice of the extras a "tradition" endorsement (both from the history of Met and from your own status of senior-member). The different side of Lucy you saw coming only from the extra images is exactly what I aim to do with these images, extract a side of the model's personality/performance which recalls some of the traditional erotic photography styles. The fact that they are not mixed with the standard color images is to avoid interference/confusion, and that's what you also caught.
I'll be happy to fulfill the request stardust, I also think she could be a regular across the Network, she can perform under different limits and show all her eroticism under different lights.
Hi kilroy! nice to hear from you after not many sets released lately, it's always sweet to my ears hearing your words of appreciation of my presentation of gorgeous Lucy. You say well, she is a beautifully endowed woman and I am proud I gave her the chance to show her sexy features here on Metart besides Sexart.
Hi Checkers! I was sure you would have noticed the lift of the skirt and the shirt.. that was a killing strip tease for me... It has been a hard shooting...
I'll be happy to give Lucy more opportunities to show her all-round sexyness on Met and Sex.
Thank you Ken, I'm glad you enjoyed Lucy's debut here on Met. And I can suggest you shoot her too, you'll be hypnotized by her big... eyes! ;)
Hi Camo4ID2, thank you for the very nice words about my set with delicious Lucy, I am really happy she has several fans and you seem to be one of the most enthusiastic :)
Hi LLC, it's nice to hear your enthusiastic appreciation of Lucy's magnificent body and her sexy features (espeially a couple of them... but not only ;))
I'll be glad to give a follow up to this debut soon.
Hi almontanp, happy to hear you liked Lucy, she's very sexy indeed and that's why I couldn't resist shooting her.
About the extra manipulated and b&w images (I wouldn't call them special effects), I'm aware that to some members like you they don't add anything, and that's fine since they are on top of the standard set). Anyway my aim is not to create "sexier" images, it's just about addressing to classic photography emphasizing contrasts and shapes (with the b&w) or giving a different taste to some of the images I consider erotic or just beautiful as photographs and worth to be seen under a different light than the standard (straight forward as you say) one. You don't have to like it, and it doesn't take anything away from the standard set.
Hi RedPilot, I haven't noticed evident motion blur in the images of the set, although there could be always some when the light is not so strong like in this case with a winter overcast sky. I don't have the original files with me at the moment but I guess I set the ISO between 400-500 as a good compromise between image quality and risks of motion blur, then I usually shoot at 1/125 or even down to 1/80 if the lens is stabilized. I have to stay on the edge with shutter speed if I want to have a larger depth of field with an acceptable aperture (not lower than 4.0, possibly 5.6). Of course when the lighting is stronger I have more options and risks of motion blur and soft focus are lower. In some cases it could also be the lens itself which has some lower quality areas away from the centre (more evident on zoom lenses at certain focal lenghts).
For your information, I'd rather keep an image in the set even if it has some micro-stains if it's a significant image in terms of poses/facial expressions or for the set story and there are no other similar ones.
I hope I answered your technical enquiry.
I am glad to hear you liked the poses and the model overall.
Hi 5seadog! so glad to hear from you again! it seems you liked Lucy so I'm twice glad.
good to know, seriously
Sunday, July 19th, 2015 on Presenting Lucy Li
Hi A84, thank you for the nice words on appreciating the set with Lucy, I will be more than glad to bring more work with her here on Met while waiting for my set for SA being released too.
I can tell you that Cynthia Hill whom I shot for some hot sets for TLE is actually a make up girl and a lapdancer who occasionally does modeling. So a few times we ended up shooting while waiting for a model was late or cancelled the shooting. Other models are also good at doing their own make up, like Michaela Isizzu, Sapphira, Lauren Crist and Edwige A.
Hi fer, nice to hear you enthusiastically commenting about another model. I am always happy to bring fantasises to life ;)
I also thought Lucy just HAD to appear here on Met after showing up on SA last year, and I am satisfied twice to hear you and other members felt the same about it.
I totally second your compliments about Lucy's legs and feet enriched by those sexy heels. For this outfit I preferred to go without underwear, but in the other sets we shot you will find something you'll like because I had her wearing her everyday bras and panties ;)
Hi Gaydar, I am very glad you like Lucy portrayed in the Metart style, she showed such class and elegance while slowly undressing, a heart-killing tease.
Hi CZM, who better than you could appreciate another Czech Beauty? ;)
I am happy to see you also support the choice of showing Lucy under Metart limits after showing off her gorgeousness on a more explicit site like SA, the same thing happening with Anita. I'm also glad you noticed many interesting points in Lucy's full figure features and performance as a poser. The make up pics were supposed to be attached by the end of the set in the extras, as usual, but even in this position they are interesting to see. Most models are serious during make up, especially at the start of the day and with a make up artist they don't know, so they look more concentrated than relaxed, but then I can assure she totally relaxed right before the shoot and the process went on throughout the day.
I also hope you'll get to see Lucy again here ;)
Neil, in effect as far as I know Lucy's measurements are 36C-23-33, definitely not a 30 bust. Your hat is more than safe..
nice catch bobblehat, that's what I also thought the same thing while shooting her.
Hi bobblehat, as I just wrote below I am very happy that someone like you really appreciates Lucy's appearance on Metart after showing her features on Sexart. I really like exploring models' attitudes under the different lights of the various Network sites styles.
I wanted this kind of outfit for this specific setting and Lucy had the right one. Then I must admit I have been almost hypnotized by her... eyes.. (ok, a little below...).
I am really looking forward to showing you and the other members the 3 more sets for Metart we shot that day (just ask K for more..;)) and of course also the Sexart one.
Thank you for the nice words!
her roots are well mixed, and not actually from the Asian countries we usually think about, and by the way she also has German roots if I remember well, so an interesting blend.
Thank you bobblehat, I was hoping a warm welcome for Lucy on Metart after pleasing us all on Sexart, so I am very glad to hear you are one of her greatest fans already.
P.S. I really must shoot the make up girl sooner or later...
Very interesting Network background Frank, you know I always appreciate your stats reveailing details of each model's story across the sites.
that's what I meant for at least bobblehat... right said!
Hi Rose, nice to be back on Met with a model who was somewhere else on the Network before. And what a model!
I am glad you noticed how her personality comes through the pictures, she is a really funny and sweet girl with AT LEAST Two Good Reasons to love... ;)
Welcome on Metart to Lucy Li, my 25th Czech model featured on the Metart network.
Lucy is one of the most gorgeous models I’ve shot so far, she has a fantastic body, cute fresh face with beautiful black hair and green eyes. She’s also the 3rd Czech with oriental roots/look after Paula Shy and Nici Dee.
I shot this set last winter, between January and February, in Prague in the same location where I had also shot Vanessa Angel, Celeste, Lauren and Tracy Smile.
It was the first time we shot together, I saw her on a Sexart video with Suzie Carina and she inspired me for shooting her in some still photo sets not just for Sexart but also for Metart, because despite her superb curves are somehow unusual for a Metart girl I thought that many members would appreciate her beauty and freshness besides her big breasts and lustful sexy body which are undoubtedly her strongpoint anyway.
I really enjoyed shooting with Lucy, she is a very sweet girl and a talented erotic model who really enjoys displaying her eroticism for the viewer. During our first set I told her that she had the most beautiful breasts I’d ever seen and she was very glad to hear it. I must admit that it has been difficult to look at her only in her beautiful eyes..
We have shot a few more sets for Metart and one for Sexart, I hope they will be released soon for some more viewing pleasure.
Hey Baggy, I love the way you depicted this set, just like Neil just did below it really fits what we were both sensing and wishing to transmit during the shoot. Celeste has so many features to love, and I also particularly loved the lenght of her lovely hair, something unique and sexy.
Monday, June 8th, 2015 on Nisarto
Hi Neil, it's nice what this set inspires you, and the atmosphere you describe is real and what is actually my favorite environment for a nice shooting bringing out the best out of a model. I could have an assistant helping me but sometimes with certain models there is nothing better than being just the two of us to avoid any kind of interference. Thank you for the nice words, I will make sure Celeste gets your compliments.
Pab1, that encounter could be quite dangerous for the heart.. I actually have almost got the chance to have them together at the shooting, but it was too much... so I split them on two different days.
Hi bobblehat, I am very glad to find out you like this set too much, I also have noticed a great improvement in our collaboration in this last shooting, the comfort and confidence level is growing and so the results of our work. I also look forward to showing more of this lovely girl.
My sixth set wiht lovely Celeste. This one's one of the latest sets from our janiary/february shooting in Prague, our third in total.
Celeste has pur efforts in becoming an erotic model, she's a friend of Sapphira who is obviously her reference.
They are different and Sapphira is still far in the galaxy of top erotic models but they are two sweet girls and Celeste is the quintessence of the girl-next-door you
could meet anytime and chat with.
We are in touch and she is already looking forward to shooting again.
It's most likely herself who decided to change her hair color. I also prefer natural or naturally looking hair colors but most of the times you have to accept what girls choose to do with their hair or body in general, unless they realize it's not good for their careers (provided modeling is their main job and not just an occasional one).
Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 on Nici Dee
Hi Ouchstopit, I'm glad you found something enriching and inspiring in this set, and I must say that I also told Katia that she reminded me of Laetitia Casta, actually with a touch of Emilia Clarke of Games of Thrones. A killer resemblance..
And I like the picture you make of Katia as an angel on a cloud.
Now all I need to do is give Laetitia a call... ;)
Monday, June 1st, 2015 on Presenting Katia
Hi Baggy, you always have nice words for my muses and I am particularly glad you liked Katia, she is already special to me and I also hope she will be allowed to show all she can offer to please us many more times. We really spent a nice time together and look forward to working together again.
Jupiter, what do you mean by darker scenarios? and what's wrong with pale backgrounds? that was actually the overall tone/feel the setting I chose had, how could I exactly change it? paint the walls? increase the saturation? and I need light to take photos. You have to consider that I shot several sets with Katia and I needed the sets to be different, so you have only seen one of the sets which wasn't exactly your cup of tea, but I needed variety, so wait to see the next sets and maybe you'll see Katia at her best (according to you ;))
or 'not' consider it, kilroy... ;) thx
Glad you liked Katia Dutchman, and I agree those lips are something irresistible.
Never mind about the B&W ..
Hi kilroy, sorry for the delayed reply, but I have been quite busy with my shooting with Mia. I am very glad to hear that you like Katia, for how different and inspiring she is. The fact that she is French adds a special taste to everything about her. I look forward to show you other sides of Katia in the other sets we shot those days.
GM, by "technically" you mean not good processor/sensor, bad lenses, too high ISO, motion blur? I tend to disagree.
Photos are not desaturated, the tones you see are close to reality, and I was there to witness.
Excess of exposure is a subjective expression: there are no burnt whites, and exposure is one of the parametrs that are up to the photographer to set, and this is what I wanted the photos to look like.
The only thing I can agree is that WB is different in some of the photos, due to some clouds obscuring the sun and dramatically changing the WB, which I didn't compensate enough.
If you think it's a bad job then once again I don't agree, and I am usually the first to criticize my own work.
Thank you for appreciating the work RedPilot. That was from the "hard" days, last year, so every nice word is rewarding twice.
Monday, June 1st, 2015 on Yeniu
Merci beaucoup Moritz! tres heureux de lire ça! :)
Hi Ouchstopit, sorry for the late reply but as hipshot wrote I was shooting with Mia the last 2 days. You're right, the silver hairbrush is that one you've just seen in Anita's hands (and not only...;)). Thank you for appreciating.
I am willing to shoot more outdoor sets, although they are more difficult/complicated to shoot if compared to indoor ones: time of the year, weather/temperature, knowledge of the area, a car, transfer time, lighting, comfort, mosquitos and other annoying animals, people watching or interfering, national laws... Many factors in play, so less chances in general to shoot outdoor, but it's always challenging so I like to give it a try whenever I can.
I can already tell you that we've just shot a few outdoor sets with my new muse Katia an with lovely Mia, even for Sexart. So just wait...;)
Thank you Ken, you really caught the setting style of this set, I imagined Nici as an old fashioned character of one of those paintings with exotic odalisques with a gorgeous body and mysterious look. I'd really love to find the time for such a painting..
Hi Checkers, I see my friend Ken has already given an answer. I can add a note, that "bodychain" was a "gift" from my wife for my shootings, and I really liked it. You will see it soon also worn by Vanessa Angel in one of the next sets ;)
uuusssee... I am almost getting used to that... I'm honored :)
Very lucky brush fer... it still misses his friend, the silver mirror, but it's doing a good job... ;)
The Seller, if you look back at some of the sets I've shot in the last 2 years you may notice I usually try to include landscape format shots in my sets whenever possible, also after some request by some other members which I tried to consider. Unfortunately the word itself explains that this format is usually fit for landscapes, quite different from pics of a human figure which usually develops vertically. When the setting allows I often try to frame the model in a horizontal shot, but that's impossible when you are using certain lenses (I use mostly 50mm, 70-200mm and 85mm which are more flattering) indoor and you don't have enough space, because you just can't fit the model in the frame unless you can shoot from several yards, which is unlikely most of the times. The alternative is to use a wideangle which deforms the model in a very unflattering way. Also remember that a model standing in a horizontal picture is more than 1,5 times smaller than the same model in a vertical picture, so when you zoom in a horizontal pic you see the model smaller and with less detail.
In outdoor sets you will find more easily pics of the model also in horizontal, because there is usually more space to count on.
CzM, I hope that Nici doesn't pay too much attention to those attacks to my photography which influence her set score, especially when they don't even look at it. Peace... and LOVE!
I can confirm what hipshot wrote Robert, we just shot a few sets with Mia this weekend and you will hopefully see them soon both on Met and on Sex ;)
Monday, June 1st, 2015 on Pertana
Rose, I also enjoyed Mia's interview today, we were speaking about it right yesterday as we arrived on location for our shooting and she told me it was a very challenging experience which she really liked, and it was funny to see the interview released the next day. I can only confirm that she is a really fantastic girl and this weekend shooting together really feels like holidays for both of us. How lucky I am! ;)
Sunday, May 31st, 2015 on Pertana
Thank you The Seller..
Sunday, May 31st, 2015 on Presenting Katia
I had bad internet connection today here in the nature next to the beach but I wanted to congratulate you Ken for today's set with Mango, she is really radianting beauty grace and eroticism through your lens. Great job my friend!
Saturday, May 30th, 2015 on Musidi
Just a quick note for this set since I've just arrived on location for a shooting with one of my all-time favorite models, Mia Sollis.
This set with Nici was shot last year in august, same days of my previous set released on Met.
I wanted the setting to be simple but still precious, with golden and silver tones matching this young jewel called Nici.
As a bonus for those members who like them also some desaturated and B&W images after the standard color set.
Saturday, May 30th, 2015 on Yeniu
RP, the low contrast/saturation depends on the clouds changing the lighting conditions. The sunbeams bouncing on the floor produced in some images the effect of light coming from the floor up when Katia was reclining backwards as DS noticed.
You're right about the subject of the set.. Katia really pleases the eyes.
Friday, May 29th, 2015 on Presenting Katia
Thank you for chiming in Ken, I appreciate your nice words and of course I'll be pleased to show more of her to members. See you tomorrow with my Nici and with Mango seen through YOUR lens.. ;)
Wow uuusssee, I'm flattered you liked our set so much! I look forward to showing you more of Katia soon!
Hey CzM, you said it: something different! As I also wrote she has a unique, exotic look due to her mixed roots. She is half Norhafrican and that's what contributes to make her so special. This was one of our very first sets but I can tell you that she opened up more and more during the shooting and she is irresistible. I was really glad to introduce her today, she couldn't miss MA.
Hi Camo4ID2, I am happy to read you loved Katia's features, and she has more to show in the follow ups.
Great addition Frank. I didn't know how many French models appeared on Metart before but now I know that Katia can be considered a rare gem also due to this fact. And you also caught why France has a privileged place in my heart... ;)
I also hope to be able to show more of Katia next months, she really deserves to please the viewers for a long time to come. Vive La France!
The lighting came from a garden with plenty of green shades, and some clouds provoked some differences in lighting. It's true that some light reflected on the floor because of the positioning of the sun-window-bed, which was at the opposite side of the room. Although her eyes are mentioned as blue they are actually one of those changeable colors shifting from grey to blue to blue-green.
I don't only create desats if there are strong colors to play with, it's just a matter of a taste I want the image to have, between color and blak and white.
Katia, my new Muse, from France.
Since the very first time I saw the photos of this model I felt a strong inspiration and knew I just had to shoot her soon: her unique look, with the exotic taste of her mixed ethnicity, those blue eyes and those incredible lips.. along with her perfect body and the warm tones of her skin.. Simply irresistible for a photographer.
I got to arrange a shooting in Rome for early May, 3 days in a nice villa next to a beautiful countryside. When my wife and I met her we instantly fell in love with her natural elegance and class, her down-to-earth attitude and her gentle manners, and we also liked her personality and maturity. Speaking French all together was something unusual for a shooting for me, and it added something special.
This set was shot on our first day, on a sweet May morning. The natural light through the big window was perfect, and I thought we didn’t need much more than Katia in a very simple setting, wearing nothing else than a sexy white tank top.
I really hope that you will find in her and like the same things I loved about her, and that you will want to see more of our work back on those inspired days.
vger_man, actually they stole this lens last year, but I was already thinking of switching to the 24-70/f2.8 Canon which had higher quality, then I got the Tamron 24-70/f2.8 stabilized and I am happy with that, although my priority goes to prime lenses (50/1.4, 85/1.8) or the superb zoom lens 70-200/2.8 Canon, although it's quite heavy to carry all throughout the shooting unless I opt for a tripod/monopod.
Thursday, May 21st, 2015 on Mizeya
semajw/james w, are you the judge in the worst photographer contest..? Well, gimme the prize then...
Wednesday, May 20th, 2015 on Mizeya
that's only the impression Marcello, I also shot Jessie last year and I can guarantee that she is not scared at all, she had just started modeling and may not be totally comfortable yet but she gave me the impression she got better and better set after set.
Wednesday, May 20th, 2015 on Presenting Jessie
Hi kilroy! dulcis in fundo..
welcome to another set of mine, this time with my beloved Lauren. It shouldn't be surprise anylonger, but every time that someone notices the way Lauren lets me capture herself I am very happy.
I agree with the missed upskirt opportunity.. there'll be another chance, but I see you understood the reason.
My cat loves Lauren and she feels the same about him... so I couldn't miss to include that shot when he was taking a walk across the setting..
And today I am also happy to see Lauren finally posting something here, I know that she is a bit reluctant because her English is not perfect and also because she is always very busy, but even today that she was working she was so kind to let us hear her voice.
Thank you for the nice words, as usual, and greetings from the DG team!
Tuesday, May 19th, 2015 on Mizeya
Nice words and good catches Praxiteles, yours is a very agreeable perspective and a nice aesthetical philosphy.
Hi CzM, you couldn't miss Miss Lauren today ;)
Such a sunny set with such a radiant girl! The yellow wall plus Lauren inspired me for such a sunshine-feel for the shooting.
Thank you for liking also the large set, it took time to shoot and process it but your words of appreciation along with the other members who seem to like them too really pay me back for the effort and time spent.
Thank you for advocacing a little RedPilot, I appreciate that ;)
and I'm happy to hear you appreciated the desats as well.
And you'r very right about Lauren, she always looks great and it's her making the difference.
Hi DS, more compliments than critiques, so I am happy with that...
Seriously, thank you for your great consideration about my collaboration with Lauren, the special relationship I have with her is really something my wife and I cherish, she is an adorable person and we always spend a good time together, and I'm glad it shows in our work.
I must admit that the chromaticism of this set is a singular and strong one, so I understand not everybody may like it 100%, like you, and the wall color surely influenced the skin tones of the model, it was inevitable and I was aware of that, but I gave priority to the yellow background as the main feature of the set, with the pros and cons. If only a couple pics out of 203 look overxposed it's a big success! ;)
I am glad you seemed to enjoy so much the bonus images, they were a considerable part of the set so I really cared how they would be received. I also think the desats are the most peculiar and even valuable images.
Finally, I can't but agree with your favorite pics ;)
Hi Horsethief, thank you for underlining this feature, Lauern's eyes are some of her most valuable assets (and she has so many...). Glad you appreciated the B&W.
How can you be so sure about the aperture and therefore the DoF without knowing which lens I was using and at what distance I was shooting? wide open for the 24-105 zoom lens I used for this set was 4, but I remember I shot mostly between 5.6 and 8, and from 2-5 meters. Do you really expect the model to be within the focus field from head to toe? I focus mostly on the eyes/face unless the pose is highlighting some other part of the body. What you consider out of focus images are probably images with the focus where I wanted it to be, or images where the part in focus stands within the weaker area of the zoom lens at a given focal lenght, next to the edges, so that's not a focus problem but a structural weak point of this type of lens which I chose in order to have a wider range of possibilities during the shoot, knowing I would lose some quality somewhere.
Some other unfocused-like images may even be affected by the image stabilizer influence. If none of my shots is focused then I think I have serious vision problems, at least I had some when shooting and processing this set.
I somehow envy your apparent certainty about technical issues, but I think it would be better to have some doubts sometimes and consider all factors needed for an objective opinion.
the black and white images are mostly some repetitive images picked from the original thread of photos and processed to b&w, or some single shots which I find particularly suitable for b&w themselves. Sometimes there are even images which I keep both in color and in b&w because I consider them worthy either ways, so mostly for each b&w image there is a similar one in color or at least with manipulated colors, so not a big waste.
Hi Checkers, I am happy to hear you like the setting, a colorful and joyful one, and also to find out you loved the bonus pics, I think it's one of the richest bonuses I have added to my sets so far.
and more will come stardust ;)
Hi James! thank you! You can be sure you will see more of Lauren from me, we will be collaborating for a long time to bring more sets like this for you to enjoy ;)
Hey Rose! I feel privileged! :) you're totally right, she looks everything you said and the Italian setting helped ;)
Hi fer, you're right, I could have surely taken a few upskirt shots of Lauren, but you have to think that when you shoot several sets on the same day you tend not to do every time the same things, so if I did already a few upskirt sets before I may have not had the inspiration for another one, even if looking at the single set it looked the most natural thing to do. For sure Lauren was not reluctant, it's just a matter of variety within a number of sets to avoid mechanical repetitions.
By the way you will be happy to know that during my last sets in Latvia last weekend I think I have taken the highest number of upskirt shots so far.. ;)
I am glad you liked the set's overall atmosphere and the extras, thank you!
Hi Neil, thank you for the enthusiastic words! Lauren is always a treat and I couldn't help giving you all as many pics as possible ;)
Hi LLC, it doesn't surprise me you found those pics adorable, I also couldn't resist grabbing the camera and taking the pics during the break, she seemed enjoying it so much.. I know I could have shot a set like that... but I'll have another chance soon ;)
there are 3 brand new sets waiting for release.. ;)
Hi RedPilot, it's always pleasant to have positive feedback on the information I share about my sets, and since you also have experience in shootings I can see you appreciate it even more because you can really catch how it feels. I'll always be glad to fulfill the curiosity behind each set I shoot.
A set from the late summer of one year and a half ago with Lauren, a warm morning in the Italian countryside. Those days were more a holiday than real work, relaxing in the sunshine between one set and another, having meals all together with a multinational team: Czech model, Italian photographer, French assistant/stylist (my wife) and Australian assistant (a photographer who was on a tour in Europe and joined me for this shooting). Ah, and another Italian of course, our feline assistant (who hot lost a couple of hours until Lauren found him nearby the villa in the high grass).
I guess the relaxed atmosphere shows in the images, we were all in a great mood and Lauren performed exceptionally those days.
I made this a very large set because we had so much fun that could just not stop, having also several backstage shots by our Australian friend, some of which are included in the extras.
Black & whites and desaturated images also included as a bonus after the standard color images.
Technical note: the yellowish tone of the shadows is evidently due to the wall color.
After quite a long break Lauren and I started to shoot again last january and soon we are going to do it again.
Glad to hear that LLC! It's the kind of shots I do especially for you members who like this kind of teasing ;)
Saturday, May 9th, 2015 on Presenting Anita Bellini
Thank you JB, I'm flattered! And looking forward to showing more of our work soon.
Maybe his nephew.... ;)
Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 on Presenting Anita Bellini
with Anita you can be sure to see more of that soeren... she's no shy girl.. ;)
MA "requires" what the majority of members "require"
Ken, CzM, Anita is her real name but Bellini is a stagename, actually some will find her also under Anita Berlusconi.. which is also a stagename.. Bellini was also a musician featured on the old 5.000 lira banknotes in Italy, and Bellini is also an Italian cocktail with peach juice...
I know gaetano maria, actually it's not a problem of WB but a different color profile which came from another workflow and accidentally replaced some of the files during the upload, unfortunately you can't see it until they are on the screen next to the others with the right profile.
I'd say a debutt then... ;)
Glad to read you enjoyed Anita's debut Wilsonface.
Hi woodchuck! thank you so much for the nice words! Anita is really cute and delicious, such a lovely little doll.
I am also glad you appreciate the minimalist setting, you perfectly caught what's behind this choice. Even when I paint a female nude I prefer plain/simple settings in order to put the focus on the model, and you're right this style is especially fit for a debut, introducing a new model who should have all the attention.
I won't seek... But if I fall into an unshaven beauty I could shoot her au naturel and then ask her to shave for the next sets, if she agrees
Hi yy, I'm not sure there are model agencies/sites specialized in that, at least in the countries the average Metart models come from, but in some agencies there are sometimes unshaven models, but they are like 5% of the total and often non-Met level, so it's quite difficult to find one. I have sometimes asked some models to stay unshaven for a few weeks before our shooting because I wanted to shoot a shaving set, but most of the times they had to shave because of previous jobs with other photographers who wanted them to be shaved. I only shot two unshaven models in my career, both redheads, one is Sally A here on Met and the other is a Scottish model who was thoroughly unshaven and she was proud of that.
I have nothing against unshaven models, I actually like variety, but nowadays the trend is shaven so it's difficult to have what you ask for. Keep hoping but please don't blame it on anyone if you don't see hair...
Really the cutest doll I could find..
Tuesday, May 5th, 2015 on Presenting Anita Bellini
Hi Checkers, I must confess that since when I started hearing so many members with this preference I started asking models to bring more ordinary clothes, their favorite ones, those ones they wear in real like, like in this case. Often I start to shoot the first set with the model wearing the outfit she wears as she arrives to the shooting. These days in many European countries temperatures are rising so imagine Anita wearing her shorts and top down the streets of Budapest.. ;)
I'm already working on this bibblefuss.. there will be soon another set available with Anita ;)
Hi fer, I've never played baseball but it sounds very exciting ;)
Great description of the lovely Anita, totally fresh and a stunning GnD with plenty of adorable features.
I'm very happy to see how much you appreciate Anita's debut, it feels like she's gonna be one of your (and our) favorite petite models here on Met, hopefully her home for a long time to come, starting from next month ;)
It's my pleasure to give feedback to viewers RedPilot, and as a photographer you also deserve to know what's going on at technical level since there's no reason why I shouldn't explain my conduct.
From your experience in the field I now know you are totally aware of the issues that may rise during a shooting, even when subjects are different from yours. In effect sometimes I give priority to the flow of the poses and the mood, the atmosphere, the human factor, over the technical perfection, so you will always be likely to find imperfections in my work, but sometimes those imperfections are the price to pay to have a more "human" and sensual set of images and see the model under a more intimate light.
Thank you for appreciating this part of my work, looking forward to more exchange of ideas with people like you.
Well said CzM, those are my priorities and the pillars of my style, I'm glad you noticed :)
Arigato Tokyo Sukimono!
long time I didn't hear from you and I'm glad you liked Anita along with the kind of settings I prefer.
I can confirm that Hungary has plenty of treasures to be discovered Pab1...
I totally agree hipshot and fer... It's a dirty job but I'll take it....
you're right hipshot, a spectacular debut of a compact bombshell, exactly how I was hoping.
I like your comparison with Vanessa Angel, they're really two opposites, although producing the same devastating erotic hurricane..
Anita's eyes are like sexual weapons and she has total control of her little perfect body.
I also hope she'll be a regular presence here and I think that this debut can be a guarantee of many future appearances.
Thank you Ken! looking forward to your next sets
I am glad to read your second post on this issue, I can confirm what you noticed.
The gear I used since last october is a top one, with great lenses, so normally there shouldn't be too many focusing issues due to the quality of the lens, especially when I use my prime lenses 50/1.4 or 85/1.8 or my zoom 70-200/2.8, while there may be some minor issues when I am forced to use the 24-70/2.8 which has some lower quality performances at certain focal lenghts.
As you also may know full-frame DSLR's don't crop images at the edges and everybody knows that lenses have their weak points along the edges, which means that when you take full body shots the model's face ends up being in next to the edges, and therefore her face may be affected by the weaker performances in terms of image quality, which is different from the common focus issues due to mistakes or wrong choices by the photographer or autofocus malfunctions.
But when you have more than 100 pics sometimes it can also happen to miss an image which is not perfect and leave it in the set.
About the face/pussy focus... you are also right, and from your comment I can see you really know about photography... I usually do what you suggest to bypass DoF issues and satisfy the viewer, although it's not always possible because models may change the pose too soon and you miss the spell, and you can't do a double shot for each pose all the time.
Hi CzM, I also think Anita just had to appear on Met, she is such an amazing petite beauty with such an erotic energy that you can't hide her forever.
This set was very pleasant to shoot, it was actually hot both for the sunny day and for Anita's performance. We produced 2 more sets that day so you can be quite to see more of her soon ;)
Hi Neil, I've also shot Anita also in bed and in a couch where I can assure she was quite comfortable ;)
Anita is my 5th Hungarian model featured on Metart. Although she's not new to erotic and she's already on Sexart movies I've always wanted to have her showing her lovely features here too.
She is a real doll, a petite girl who spreads sweetness all around and has a natural smiling attitude. She's also a good poser and very willing to show her intimate parts in the sexiest way for the viewer's pleasure.
This set was shot during our second shooting together, last March in Budapest, the days of the eclipse. The weather was perfect and we had plenty of sunlight - unlike during our first shooting last December - which flattered Anita's natural beauty and also put her in the perfect mood for a great shooting, enjoying the unusual warmth for a city like Budapest.
The previous day also her friend Alexis Brill was there to shoot, although I'm not sure you'll be able to see her sets.
This set has a matching one (and a really hot one) shot for Sexart which K has already available, I hope you will be able to enjoy it soon.
Exactly Dutchman, that's why I included those shots: intimate and feminine.

Hi Dark Storm, another interesting and welcome comment, it's always pleasant to hear from you.
You're right about the differences of between sets which develop in a similar way, but that's just the proof that when it gets too subjective there is no point in trying to understand what is "right" or "wrong", you know.
The lighting is one of the things that gave me great satisfaction here, the overcast sky and the windows created a very soft light which was perfect for the shoot.
I agree about the desats effectiveness, in fact I included just one because it was neither fit for the BW nor for the standard color images because it would be repetitive next to the others. Good catch.
I always try to include bts pics because they add reality to the whole set. The other model under make up is Vanessa Angel and one of the corresponding sets is Olenea released in March, but there is also a Sexart set shot on that occasion, in the bedroom, Abasu, released on April 30th.
She hasn't cut it since our last shooting 6 months earlier, I was also impressed by such a long black hair contrasting with her pale skin.
Hi WIlliam, thank you for explaining how it would work better with negative - but constructive - comments, I myself take a lot into consideration critiques which make sense and are not explained and too much subjective.
Buck Maxim, Celeste's eyes are something that not even colors can give justice to... you have to see them for real.. ;)
Thank you so much for the flattering score!
Hi fer, I somehow was hoping you felt this way about this set with Celeste because I know that you (and hipshot, as well as CzechMate and others) are among her number one fans of this young little girl. I wanted to transmit the relaxed mood and the sweetness of Celeste showing herself in an intimate moment of relax.
We both wish you a GREAT week...;)
Very sweet words Rocky... thank you!
Hi LLC, I am glad you enjoyed the set, I also find Celeste very hot here.. and I just had to leave those shots.. they give the idea of how Celeste was really feeling when shooting for Metart members... Thank you for the 10!
Hi hipshot, the picture you made of this set really makes sense and matches the feeling I wanted to transmit with a relaxed setting and mood. I must admit that the panty shots were done having in mind the suggestions by you and other members.. I agree with you when you highlight Celeste's the peculiarities, she is a real girl-next-door from head to toe.
Thank you from the Delta team!
Ahoj CZM, glad you noticed Celeste's mood and comfort, it was my goal with this shooting and it really felt like shooting a new girl. When Celeste saw the pictures she totally liked them and was so excited to see herself in a new light, sexy and comfortable with herself.
I am very happy that this new effort has produced the results I was hoping for and that it shows here.
Hi DeeDee, I really appreciate your consideration about Celeste and her performance in this set, I am flattered :)
Hi Neil, thank you for such nice words, I am glad you are liking Celeste and her features. The setting helped making the setting pleasant. You're right about having seen this apartment before, that's where I've also shot Vanessa Angel in her last two sets released on Met, and I wish it was my residence in Rome but it's just an apartment booked for the shooting in Prague.
I also liked to include the girls in the kitchen in the set to make the viewers have an idea of the atmosphere during the shoot. Along with Celeste there is the make up artist taking care of Vanessa Angel who was the next model I shot on that location.
Hi will, I understand you may not be a fan of B&W. When I have the chance I always take some BTS shots of models unless I am very concentrated on preparing the set myself, anyway in this occasion I took more photos of Celeste under make up/hairstyle which I will use in the other sets from that shooting.
Celeste under a new light. This set is from our third shooting together last february, almost 6 months after the previous one from which all of ours sets were coming from until today. The experience achieved by Celeste and the confidence level between us during this period has grown, producing a more relaxed set. The soft winter light from a big bow window in this apartment in Prague contributed to creating the ideal conditions for the set.
Celeste is a sweet young girl and she makes efforts to become a good erotic model, and I was glad to see improvements.
The set has some black & white photos and a backstage shoot as an addition.
Woodchuck... Wow, what can I say?
All so very flattering and motivating...
A giant THANK YOU is not enough, so I'll have to pay back with new inspired work..;)
About chatting.. If you're on facebook just look for me, Davi Deltagamma, and we'll have fun ;)
Till later my friend!
Monday, April 27th, 2015 on Navee
Hey woodchuck! long time since our last interaction! it's great to hear from you on this "special" occasion, we could call it a milestone in a way.
I don't know what to say about your incredibly flattering comments.. If it's true that I improve it's because of all the great feedback I get from you all, and I will always be thankful.
I totally agree your POV about Mia's tat, that's the way it should be considered. And I can tell you that you'r not heretical at all when you notice that Mia looks beautiful no matter what she is wearing, clothes or nothing at all.. I will add that she is also into fashion/glamour shootings and she is simply gorgeous.
Finally, all agreeable also about the B&W pics, nice POV once again.
We will try to keep the magic coming.. I guess we just need to meet and shoot.. ;)
You can be sure there will be much more coming from these models.. ;)
Sunday, April 26th, 2015 on Navee
foofsflou, I had the same reaction when I saw the tattoo personally at my first shooting with Mia back in 2010, I could never tell she would have such a huge mark on her back, and you could say I was shocked. But then I realized it's part of Mia and it belongs to her way of living life, so when you stop thinking for a moment that she is (only) a model and realize that she is a girl who makes choices maybe it will be easier to accept the tattoo (although not necessarily like it). And I totally agree with you when you say that her beauty stays unique, just like her personality, to which the tattoo is tightly linked.
LB, consider that in most cases black & whites allow me to avoid too many repetitions in the set and to keep certain images which would normally be cut from the standard set for several reasons, so normally you would just not see those images if it weren't for the black & white galleries.
Better BW than nothing...
Thank you vger_man, very welcome advocacy ;)
I may surely try some other processing methods in one of the next sets, if the images inspire me to do so, why not? experiments in photography never end
Hi jim, nice to hear from you and reading your flattering words for Mia who totally deserves them. I am very happy you liked the shooting, a set is always a combination of several factors and thanks to Mi's performance and the mood the work was great. It's also nice you appreciate the black/whites I included, I know they are controversial and some don't like it, but those who are really passionate about Photography can't help seeing the magic of BW photos which transmit some vibrations that color images could never equal.
I am also looking forward to working together with Mia and showing more of our collaboration to you all.
Hi Zarbo, thank you so much! I am glad to hear you appreciate Mia's choice with that tattoo, it adds a touch of mistery to this unique model. As you say many girls have tattoos, so let's deal with it, especially when it's not just a simple decoration but something which has a meaning related to one's way of living, or beliefs, or memories, or whatever. I am honored to have signed your screensaver with a beautiful portrait (easy to do with Mia...).
About Nicole, I have her second set actually in my archive but it's supposed to be available soon, I had a busy year last year and it took several months to retrieve from troubles, including forgotten archive sets, but you can be sure you will see at least another set with her, but who knows I won't shoot her more ;)
Hi Baggy, as you can see Mia has joined us (although kept the secret of her choice about the tattoo) but she must have been very glad to read how many things about her you like, and as she has already confirmed you can be sure you will see more galleries from us in the near future.
The top was mine and I brought it on the purpose from my shooting wardrobe for Mia. We had already used something similar in the set "Puella" shot in collaboration with Peter Guzman. I was happy when K saw the see-through effect and allowed those pics.
Hi Mia! what a nice surprise on this Sunday to finally read from you!
I am very happy to see you join the community of enthusiast viewers (and photographers) gathering here on Metart.
I want to thank YOU for taking the time to drop this message which I am sure will make many members glad, and I hope it will be the first of many to come.
We have to think of something special for our upcoming shooting in May.. ;)
Also, I am sure that from your own words members will have a better idea of how clever and thoughtful you are, and why everybody loves shooting with you, not just for your beauty and eroticism.
Thank you Mia! Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
P.S. Thank you so much for the flattering words for me... :)
Robert, you're totally about that "je ne sais quoi", or "quid" how Latins would say. Although I've shot Mia several times she still has that enigmatic quality that you can't really tell for sure. The only way to try figure out is to keep looking at her sets here on the Network and maybe we'll define that quality one day..
You also pointed out one of Mia's peculiarity very well, that's her extremely natural attitude while posing nude and in erotic poses, she is so elegant.
I admit it's a real privilege to have a friendly relationship with such girl, and I would envy myself too... ;)
I will update the community about my shooting with Mia as soon as I have the chance, it will be in the countryside next to Rome since we will take advantage of the late spring weather for some outdoor shoots too, and Mia is willing to come back here and visit the city once again.
Frank, what to add to your looong winded and detailed post..? I was shocked there were no stats.. (actually just one about my sets with Mia) but despite the typing (encripted codes...?;)) you covered in an excellent way Mia's "legend" so far in the erotic photography world, which sees her starring brightly. You already knew she is one of the models who has a special meaning to me, so every shooting is memorable and extraordinary.
I remember when I wrote you about this set and the "unveiling" of the tattoo, if K agreed to have it visible through the black shirt, so now that everybody could finally see this set I am very glad and satisfied it has been received how I was hoping and you and the others were expecting too. It's great to read how even most members who don't like tattoos on girls or don't like this particular tattoo respect Mia's choice.
Thank you once again for your contribution.
Hi Moritz, I am glad to hear you are one of the many who were happy to fulfill their curiosity about Mia's famous tattoo after all this time hiding it. Having it visible through the black fabric was a way to respect an "historical rule" of Metart while letting members take a look at it, maybe in the future the rule will gradually disappear, who knows.
Thank you for appreciating the set and the extras (and respecting the B&W), so nice of you!
Hi kilroy! you don't have to explain why you missed my last set, never mind, although I have been missing a bit your very welcome words.
Everything you point out about Mia and her performance in this set is also what I was very satisfied about, and which is guaranteed everytime Mia and I have the chance to shoot together, and it gets better every time.
Thank you my friend!
Saturday, April 25th, 2015 on Navee
Tucker, freckles are also something about Mia I just love, so I would never photoshop them out ;)
Hi Whiplash, it's my pleasure to have produced with Mia something that you and many others seem to have liked so much, detail by detail, which have been accurately chosen. As you say Mia is a very good reason to stop and stare at what Metart can offer with her and the other beauties like her, who is one of those girls who can really drive you crazy only with that "something" she has but you can't describe 100%.. Eyes are part of that "something" and surely it could be very interesting to see her with a bit more make up (if K allows...;)), she would still look a natural beauty with a touch of glamour. I actually have shot her with such make up in one of our first shootings and she was.. wow!
Thank you for the very flattering words Whiplash!
Gary, the important is that you liked at least the color photos of Mia, I know that not everybody likes B&W but still it's a bonus for those appreciating it.
well said BA, with such a nickname you could never ignore a beauty like Mia
I think she needs also sun protection for her pale skin before sunbathing on a beach.. any volunteer..?
Notregde, it's clear that many people may not like tattoos in general and this one in particular, like you, but you have to consider that modeling may not be 100% of the life of the girls who appear here on Metart, so they may want to choose for themselves what they like without caring too much about the consequences on modeling, which is a limited part of their lives after all. If K had to reject all the models who have tattoos even when they are not shown we would miss models of the caliber of Melena A, as an example.
Hi Checkers, nice to hear you liked the outfit and the posing as well as the extras, and very flattering consideration overall... Thank you for the round 10 :)
Fer, very interesting and agreeable considerations about Mia and her tattoo, I am sure she would agree too with your point of view.
Thank you for the nice words for the team about the set, it was our pleasure ;)
yy, I never said that I don't airbrush, but only when I consider it absolutely necessary for fixing stains and imperfections which would make an image look not pleasant to the eye, but in the armpit case there was no editing, I took a look and maybe the smoothness of Mia's skin and the lighting on her pale skin made you think so.
soeren, although the form is not poetic as you say the fact that you liked those headshots and consider them so erotic means that you have a poet soul.. ;)
But I guess that even poets wouldn't remain indifferent in front of Mia's pussy shots... maybe they'd just call them differently.. ;) Poetry is all about form..
hipshot, less than 8 automatically means 1.. that's a shame having Mia pay the aversion that some have against me.. but I hope she just pays attention to comments written by members which are all very flattering.
Radiant is one word that truly synthetizes Mia's performance today hipshot, and I totally agree when you say that she can flirt without being obvious at all, that's one of the several features Mia has shown in her MA appearances.
I'm very glad you liked the extra shots, I wanted them to really add something to the many sets Mia already has on the network, and if you even appreciated the B&W's... it's something memorable for me..;)
Thank you my friend!
How was your shower vger_man..? ;)
I hope that too Robert.. For sure as long as Mia will be shooting I will always be happy to collaborate with her, she is one special model to me
Mia just texted me saying that she is busy with a shooting right now but as soon as she's done with the work she will read the comments and probably write something for the members, so for those who love Mia (like I do..) make sure you come back in 6-8 hours and check ;)
Thank you CZM, I'm flattered by your words, and glad that you like Mia all-round and appreciated the features of this latest work together. The effect of seeing the tattoo had on you is exactly what I was expecting on viewers, so it worked :)
I also wanted to fill this set with plenty of extras for Mia's fans who can see her from different POV's today.
Finally, I'm very happy we made your day, since it seems like it is a SPECIAL day for you... Isn't it...? So this set with Czech Red haired Goddess is dedicated to you CzechMate! ;)
Rose, I am very happy to read you appreciated so many things about Mia in this set, it's always a pleasure for me to shoot together because she is not only physically beautiful but she has that amazing sexy attitude and that naturally sultry look that makes every image so powerfully erotic and still classy and elegant.
If (when) I start with movies I would love to start with such a special model like Mia, she is one of those models with whom I started my Metart experience so it would have also a special meaning. Let's see.
Hi Pab, I am glad that the set has succeeded in showing Mia's unique features.
Hi Frank, I made my background post a bit later than you would expect (it's saturday morning here and for once I took it easy..;)) so I will be waiting for your post later today afer you wake up. Thanks for the nice words so far.
Hi bobblehat, your flattering words for Mia and our work is very welcome :) Thank you!
My fifth set with Mia, four years after we met for the first time for a nude shooting and three years after our first Metart shooting. In these years Mia has grown, she has become a sexy young woman who can express her unique eroticism in a refined, classy way.
This set was shot last august in Prague, we met after a couple of years from our last shooting and it was very pleasant.
As hipshot131 has remarked her skin has a nice tone and her freckles are so lovely. Her bright red hair with ringlets are more enticing than ever.
As a first set of the day and after having shot already several sets together we wanted to do something special, so we used this black transparent top which let her tattoo sneak out through the fabric.
After that many members have been asking to find out what her special tattoo looks like I thought of "unveiling" it in a discreet way.
If Mia jumps in and comments on this set she will decide whether to explain about her tat herself.
The shooting was smooth and pleasant, we just had an unexpected break on changing location since we had to wait longer than planned for the owner to let us in, but while waiting we had a lovely chat about the past 2 years in our lives and about memories of our previous shootings.
I added several portraits in black & white as an extra to the standard set and a few casual shot I took during the make up and a break.
I am very glad to announce that Mia and I have just arranged a new shooting in May/June, we both look forward to shooting and show you the results.
Hi Ken! nice surprise from you :) I am very glad you appreciate the setting and colors of the set, the location and the time of the day were a lucky choice and also very close to home, so the mood was right and everything was smooth.

Thank you fer, it sounds like I reached one of the goals of the set :)
thank you again bobblehat!
Hi bobblehat, it's always a sweet music when you like one of my sets.. thank you
Hi uuusssee, thank you! this is also one of my favorite sets with Nici so far.
Hi Neil, thank you for appreciating this set and for wishing to see more of my work, I also hope to have the chance to have more work displayed here.
I am also happy to hear that you would like to visit Italy again, it's a long trip but always worth it. If you come to Rome just let me know ;)
Ahoj CZM! you guessed right about Nici's hair, as I wrote later in my post.
I personally prefer her with her natural brown color as she was here, also because it fits better her oriental look. I wanted to have the effect of a Romanesque look with the outfit, so it's great you liked it. I agree she looks like a nymph.
The fact that you appreciated this set which was shot outdoor therefore more difficult sounds particularly sweet to my ears, I am happy to have managed the light in a good way, the light often makes the difference.
hopefully you will see something soon fer, let's see
Hi hipshot, it's always nice when you like a set of mine and appreciate some its features, like in this case. I have a few new girls who could be shown here on Met in the next days hopefully and also plan to shoot a few new ones in May.
Stay tuned ;)
Rose, nice to read you enjoyed this outdoor set with Nici.
Snake, wow, what a honor to be mentioned as a new Leonardo... I'll take the honor although I don't really deserve it... Thank you!
I am really glad you enjoyed this outdoor set, it's often not easy to find and manage the right conditions to make a good set in the nature, so I consider myself lucky in this case.
And if you ever find the money to fly to Italy with your girlfriend.. Why not shooting some sets in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany.. It would be inspiring and challenging, I am very open to this kind of ideas ;)
This set with Nici was shot in August 2014 when she was here in Rome a couple of weeks after the theft where I lost all.
The location is a natural area not far from where I used to live at the time, the early afternoon light was strong enough to permit shooting in the shadow of the trees with a reflector.
I liked the idea of a beauty from ancient Rome or a nymph in the woods, so we used this dress provided by my wife Phi with a pair of sandles.
The set was not easy to shoot because it was hot and there were several mosquitos, so I had to be fast to shoot the set to prevent Nici from suffering, but she was very good and didn't complain at all, and finally we obtained a good variety of poses with even an above-the-average number of explicit shots for an outdoor set, an overall very satisfying set.
Seller, you put the two "obsessions" (stats and hairy pubes) on the same level, but they're not:
statistics are just a different way to read the photosets, the models, the photographers, they are a different language to express thesis/concepts/behaviours, they're a broad subject and they basically don't ask for anybody to do anything, they just add some information that you may take or ignore;
the hairy pubes obession is referred only to a limited, monotonous aspect, which is hairy pubes themselves, and it's one repetitive request to models/photographers for them to comply to this request, which is usually a model's (or a photographer's) choice.
Finally, one thing is writing several posts focused on stats (broad subject) which several people even find interesting (I am one of those people too) and one totally different thing is the same recurring request about something that most members don't seem to care about and which is useless when made that way about any shaven model (99% of those featured on the site, speaking about numbers).

Hi Rumpel, I also like women wearing nothing but heels, so I perfectly understand you. In this case the theme of the set was the red dress so I let it have priority over heels, but you will find several other sets with focus on heels.
Thank you for your words of appreciation for my set and for gorgeous Amanda.

Always nice to see Paula Shy delight the audience with her gorgeousness and her sweet smile.
Great work Mikele, and thank you for bringing Paula on Met today.

I'm glad you think so bobblehat, thank you

Thank you LB, I promise I will focus more on Vanessa's derriere in the next shootings... ;) And you can be sure that Vanessa will stay like this, that's the way she really is and we all love it.
Thank you Whiplash, very pleased to read such nice words from you, Vanessa really deserves all this and I am very glad you liked the photography here.
Hi kilroy, always nice to hear from you and today even nicer. And the nicest thing you could say about this set is all about a flattering natural lighting for a pure natural beauty like Vanessa. This was my last set for the shootings in Prague, right after that we left for the airport and it was the perfect ending of another memorable shooting. Thank you my friend!
Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 on Seldar
I'm still here hipshot.. thank you for caring..
I really like the way you depicted Vanessa in this set, and I can tell you that what you imagine about her is just true.
Hi monkeryma, nice to hear from you again, even nicer when you have such gratifying words for me.
Dekuju CZM! and you're totally right, Vanessa has grown so much since her first appearance on Met, and she seemss getting more and more comfortable with the status of Met Angel.
Hi Ken, thank you for remarking those features.
Next time I come to Prague we should all meet up for an dinner together ;)
Thank you Victor, agreeable opinion and nice words from you.
Nicely said Ian, I understood the comparison suggested by the string of pearls. Two different sets and models producing a similar impression in terms of intensity and eroticism. Couldn't agree more on your last, Vanessa and Melena stand among the most beautiful girls on Earth.
Yes bobblehat we actually spoke about it... for now she would be ok with clothes on... but we'll see...;) Keep hoping ;)
It was great for me to be back after such a long absence, I have been missing the taste of the nice words of appreciation of my work in collaboration with a beautiful model, and in this case the fact that the model is Vanessa and that she felt truly happy to read what you members liked about her is something even more special.
Thank you all for expressing your thoughts and appreciation for this set and for making Vanessa feel like a real Princess (which is what she actually deserves to feel like).
It was February 2015 y-y. So do I really need that English class or shall I pass...? ;)
You're right bobblehat.. It's that make up artist ;)
Back on Metart after 25 days. One of the longest periods without any sets to comment, but today one of my all time favorite models has given me an early birthday gift so here I am again.
My 8th and most recent set with lovely Vanessa Angel was shot last february in Prague, we shot on 2 different days, spending time together and having a memorable dinner together with my wife Phi and other friends. Every time I have the chance to shoot Vanessa I feel lucky, she has such a grace and elegance and her beauty is so radiant and pure, with those big brown eyes to be stared at for hours...
This set highlights that side of Vanessa made of elegance and class, a jewel shining with her beauty in the soft light of a winter morning in Prague.
We had a chat last night and she told me she is looking forward to seeing the set and that she may win her shyness and jump in with a comment later today. I can't help thinking of a new shooting together soon.
Despite the low rating I quite liked this set, I found the location very interesting and challenging, with a good natural lighting. Unfortunately the setting itself didn't help with the variety/comfort of poses, because of the shooting angle and the public nature of the place. But knowing Celeste quite well after 3 shootings together I can see that she was feeling quite comfortable during the shoot with Dave Lee, and she has even improved a little in her effort of being more natural and sexy with poses. She still needs directions but she is slowly becoming more self-confident.

Yes, just SA/TLE style unfortunately so far
Saturday, March 28th, 2015 on Merget
A very classy and elegant erotic set by my friend Ken with delightful Mango. This model is so very intriguing and sexy, and this great set of photos made me really want to shoot her soon.
Congratulations Ken, I have been away from the comments in the last couple of weeks since I had no sets released in this period, but your set was a good excuse to jump in and take a look at your work. Well done!
Saturday, March 28th, 2015 on Isfera
You are giving me a great excuse for thinking of shooting gorgeous Mango anytime soon.. Let's see ;)
I'd be pleased to shoot her for Met Chester, I will check about her availability.
I have some sets for Sexart and The Life Erotic actually, maybe time to show them.
Ken, as you know I am busy shooting in Budapest right now but I wanted to let you know quickly that Nici in your set looks just GORGEOUS!
Well done my friend
Thursday, March 19th, 2015 on Rimse
Hi my friends, sorry for the late post but I think I've just answered your question about Adalyn ;)
Saturday, March 14th, 2015 on Presenting Adalyn
Sorry for the late post but my saturday morning was devoted to a late awakening (once in a while) and a good breakfast, followed by a walk in the sun and a delicious lunch, all while taking a look at this debut which looks not bad so far. Now, after my coffee, some background.
Another Hungarian Honey for my 72th set on Metart, and it seems it will be not the last one.
I discovered Adalyn last december in Budapest, I saw her on a casting site and was hit by her emerald green eyes and her beauty, she had just started posing few weeks before and this must have been one of her very first erotic shootings. She looked a bit shy and didn't speak a lot, moreover the fact that she didn't speak English was a little barrier at the beginning, so I took it easy and asked the make up artist to talk to her and take it easy with the make up so that she could feel at ease as time went by. The strategy seemed to work at least a bit, so we started the first set with one of her outfits which I found sexy on her and although she looked a bit too much concentrated on the shooting and the posing I could see that she tried to look as relaxed as possible for a first time.
The set was supposed to be kind of a test set but I liked her and had the feeling it could work, so we gave even a try to a second set, which turned out to be eligible for Sexart since she said she could try that style, so hopefully you will even be likely to see her perform on a more erotic level.
I was curious to see how she would be received by members and I was very glad to read the positive comments, considering the little experience and the efforts Adalyn still needs to get more comfortable and relaxed, but she looks promising.
I didn't include any black & whites because the images didn't inspire me for that.
This Hungarian debut today comes few days before my next trip to Budapest for more shootings and hopefully more newcomers for Metart from that country. Wish me luck ;)
Hi C6, I noticed that small but significant detail only after downloading the photos and it was a very nice surprise, testifying the true mood of Vanessa during the shooting.
Glad you have several favorite images, sounds like you enjoyed the set.
It's also nice you are one of those appreciating the extras, I'll be happy to keep delivering them.

I totally agree Hawkeye, that was a very sexy move and with such long hair Vanessa offers several options in a set, the ponytail was for a change but I couldn't avoid letting her beautiful hair loose.
I am particularly glad you appreciate the black and white images, as you may have read not everybody understands this type of photography which is sometimes considered "old" instead of "out of time".
RedPilot, there would've been a place for you at the table.. and you would have realized in few seconds how Vanessa really is lovely.
I imagined that the panties would have had a few estimators, that underwear really so looked sexy on her.
Thank you Moritz, glad you enjoyed the set. I actually planned to have Vanessa let her hair loose earlier but her eyes are so magnetic that sometimes I forget my plans when looking at her... It was initially meant to be done after the first 30-40 pics, but that's it.
Very nice note Checkers, I had the same feeling during that moment, it felt so natural and therefore sexy. It really gives the idea of the essence of the set, where we tried to show Vanessa as natural and relaxed as possible.
We are both very glad you enjoyed the set.
Hi fer, every time I see Vanessa smile and relax during our shootings I can really see how she enjoys it, despite the fact of having a somewhat shy attitude, which makes her even sexier. As I have already written in other occasions, she is a very sweet girl whom I find really irresistable even now after shoowing together for more than 2 years.
I had a chat with her earlier today and she was very happy to have so many nice comments, she is a bit shy for writing a lot but she was happy to let you all hear her voice since I told her that you would appreciate. We are already planning to meet again soon for another good time shooting together.
hipshot, when you like a model or a set you always find the right words to depict the essence of the work, and it sounds all so very pleasant to Vanessa and gratifying to me for the work weh have done together. The greatest compliment is that Vanessa looks real and this is what we both wished to transmit through the images. Thank you for the very welcome words of appreciation.
Thank you CZM, we really enjoy working together and it's great that this special mood is visible in the images, resulting in a totally comfortable Vanessa therefore showing the real her, and it feels like it's going to be better and better in the future.
totally agreable Pab
always nice words from you, thank you Neil.
I couldn't say it better Frank, thank you for covering all the items about this set. There are more sets from this session awaiting to be released and more to be shot soon, I will keep you posted.
LB, I must have been bewitched by Vanessa's magnetic brown eyes so I missed more rear shots.. Maybe half of the set would have been a bit much but I agree her B side deserves to be celebrated. Anyway, I count about 25 rear shots in this set, it could be enough.
About the black and whites: I would probably not include in the standard set most of the images you see in black and white, due to the fact they would look repetitive or inadequate in terms of facial expression, so you'd better take them as they, the alternative would be not seeing them at all.
Thank you for not complaining to be paying for that at least.. but most of all thank you for the appreciation for Vanessa and the photography, we will be both happy to show many more of our sets.
Ingoodtaste, It should be clear by now that members pay for up to 120 photos because that's the maximum amount of photos that photographers also get paid for. This means that the extra photos from #121 onward are all for FREE, so you don't pay for them, they are a bonus you are free to take or leave, and as long as there is even just one member who appreciates my "free gift" I will keep on including it in my sets, for my own freedom of expression.
I could comment about your consideration of black & white photography but I can't explain over a century of photography in few words, especially to those like you who seem to have no idea about what photography is, so I'll just take note that you think that "colored" photos are "better".
P.S. Thanks God Helmut Newton and a few others didn't quite think the same.
Why not fer? No problrm, we can surely do it ;)
Always something to be celebrated about Vanessa, right Ian?
Thanks for appreciating this set.
My 7th set with this real Angel named Vanessa.
No wonder why I like shooting her so much, not only she is a beautiful sweetheart with a girl-next-door look and attitude, but she really spreads sweetness and grace all over when we are shooting together, the mood is always great and having become even friends after seeing each other so many times adds more value to our collaboration.
This time it was right from our last shooting in Prague by the end of January/start of February, my wife was there to assist me and we spent a great time together. This was the second set from the session, I was still deciding about the outfit when I saw Vanessa wearing her underwear while waiting to start, and really liked the idea of having her pose with her own bra and panties. For the hair I opted for the ponytail for a change, she has beautiful long hair which gives many options for the hairstyle and we enjoy trying different ones.
The shooting was smooth as usual, we shot a couple more of sets and then went all together out for dinner, enjoying the evening a lot.
Every set with Vanessa have the power to recall those very relaxed and enjoyable spells spent shooting together, and the mood gets as good as back to those moments, feeling really pleasant.
I included a few black & whites and manipulated images after the standard colour set, I hope you all enjoy.
Jupiter, thank you for taking the time to expand on your initial comment, it's agreeable and I appreciate.
This kind of opinions help leverage the discussions to a useful level.

Another flattering comment for a model, Neil, I am sure Sunshine would have a bright smile on her face reading this. You described the set as I also perceived it, nice to hear it.
Saturday, February 28th, 2015 on Kenera
The flare was actually an effect I liked and wanted to be at the start of the set, I wouldn't call it a crappy exposure. If I considered it a mistake I would have kept those photos out of the set. It's a matter of tastes.
Variety, broken rules and creativity contribute to make this site unique.
Hi LLC, glad you liked the set and totally understandable if you didn't like the make up, I wanted to let Sunshine do it the way she felt comfortable with, maybe she thinks her lips are a bit too thin and wanted to give a different effect which is subjective, but at least she felt more confident with it.
About the blanket I may agree in general, but in this and other cases for my sets I prefer to avoid having something interfering with the model and the natural setting, even if it is not so comfortable.
what's the point yin-yang?
many people also think her sets are worth 10, or 9, or 6, 5... and several ones think they are worth 1. The same with my work, the whole range from 1 to 10, with an average vote (but not necessarily the most frequent one) of 7.
Sunshine is currently rated 8.79/8.80 so surely there are people who rate her 7 or 8 like you say but also 9 or 10.
If I may express my opinion, any vote under 8 is surely due to the fact that people are not impressed by the work/model, but excuse me if I keep thinking that a 1 is close to hating or at least not standing the fact that I reply to negative comments with my reasons or try to offer something different despite the critiques of those who don't wish to get extras.
I agree that the perfect rating system probably doesn't exist, but if we had all the available information, including how many voters for each single vote score and even the type of account voting a single score, possibly splitting the votes for the model's performance and for the photography, then there would be several interesting things to consider in order to explain some anomalies for those who wish to go deeper into stats and read beyond numbers.
I have personally started considering much more the comments than the score itself because at least you know why the set is liked or not.
Fer, that's so very nice to hear my impressions confirmed by you. Comfort and confidence were the first things coming to my mind when shooting this set, with several factors concurring to this result. The nice white dress surely made her feel beautiful and in harmony with the inspiring locatio.
Thank you for the very welcome appreciation words!
Hi "jack", I am very glad to know that what I share with members is appreciated and useful for having a broader perception of the set itself, it's my pleasure to keep sharing and working this way.
Friday, February 27th, 2015 on Kenera
Hi fotoman! with such a name you couldn't be wrong... ;)
I am always happy to hear a new voice and particularly glad when it's someone who appreciates photography in a wider perspective and knowing what it's all about, like you.
I also agree with you about Photoshop, I consider it a very important tool to optimize images and fix imperfections, but it shouldn't influence too much the image changing the way it was shot.
Thank you for your candid comment, it's very much appreciated, I look forward to hear more comments from you on my upcoming work.
Have a good light ;)
Thank you bobblehat, so Sunshine seems to have at least TWO supporters... ;)
Hi bobblehat, always nice to her from you.
I am very glad you appreciate this set with Sunshine, which as I wrote is probably one of my favorite ones. You're totally right when you noticed a more relaxed mood by Sunshine, I had the same impression when shooting her outdoor and this was actually the first set we ever shot in nature, followed by another one already released.
And please let me dedicate sequence 066-069 to you..;)
Hi Gary, this is the spirit I wish everyone had when looking at Sunshine's sets ;)
Thank you for the high score, maybe this time Sunshine will get a round 8 for this performance..
Of course I accept constructive criticism Jupiter, but I have to ask you if you really think that black & white photos do not suit with nature scenarios in general, because I could tell you that there are tons of great B&W's shot in nature, even the latest Wildlife Photography of the Year award was won with an amazing black & white photo shot in the nature.
To be exact only 14 extra images out of 79 are b&w (the majority of the remaining images have manipulated colors) and they are mostly portraits and anatomical close-ups, which have not much to do with nature shots, so your theory doesn't fit much here. Of course if you think that nature's best feature is color then of course black & white photography is not the most suitable medium to represent it from your perspective, but I believe that nature is much more than just colors, it's also shapes, volumes, harmony, contrast.. and you are forgetting that the main subject of the photos is a beautiful nude girl, and IMO photography without b&w nudes would miss a great part of its all-time masterpieces.
Btw, does "Perfection" exists...? ;)
I think I just like her
Fer, thank you for explaining so efficiently my choice of the extras, I admire how you never get tired of trying members to understand the philosophy behind it, I really appreciate.
Hi Pab. As some have already pointed out if you don't like the extras you can just stop at the standard colour photos. It's not possible to separate the extras in other ways or to put a "warning" at the end of the standard photos, so I just put them when the flow of the standard set is complete.
I totally understand if you and other members don't like different image styles than the realistic colour ones, but I see your criticism as if you ordered a pizza and you complained when the waiter shows up with a giant pizza and also brings you fries and salad for free. You won't have to pay for it, you are free to taste or leave it. Would you really complain and write a negative review for that?
Also, you call it experiment but it's not anylonger, it's what my photography is right now. For your information my black & whites are not made by clicking on some automatic button but changing each single color cast and the image parameters, depending on many factors, in order to get the specific image I have in mind. If you see no differences black & white images maybe you don't look at the images deep enough, try to look at it in the right way, there is a whole world to discover. Otherwise I suggest you don't look at them at all.
Hi Zakk! You're right, the combination Sunshine+sunlight is gorgeous ;) This is personally one of my top 5 sets I shot with Sunshine and I am very glad you liked the photos.
Maybe because you're not the only subscriber
My 13th out of 15 sets starring Sunshine, my 70th on Met.
I shot this set last september in a nice outdoor location in Hungary, near lake Balaton. Sunshine was happy to move from the town and spend a weekend in the countryside, especially with such nice weather. I found a more relaxed Sunshine on this third shooting we had together, we had an increased confidence and it showed in the images. This set in particular was the opening of the session, we had just arrived on location after a pleasant breakfast with my assistant in a bungalow.
I saw this path in the green grass and imagined Sunshine resulting as a goddess from ancient Rome being born from Nature, a countryside version of Venus by Botticelli coming from the sea. The dress was my wife's choice, although she wasn't there at the time, she put it in my bag because she said it would have looked lovely on Sunshine's slender figure.
We were both happy to shoot outdoor for once, after several sets indoor, and I noticed a different attitude by her, resulting in a more relaxed, happier and more relaxed mood while posing, enjoying the beauty of nature.
For this set I included the usual extras (which actually started with Sunshine's set Erostea) focusing mostly on manipulating colors for a milder taste instead of the harder feel given by the black & whites.
For some reason the earlier sets with Sunshine back in 2013 were much more appreciated in terms of score, although she has started showing more smiling attitudes than before, since that seemed to be the main issue with her critics. But still I think that Sunshine is one of the most interesting models I have shot, being so enigmatic and controversial and therefore unique.

What a great thread of comments already! Let's go.
Amanda, my 23rd model appearing on Met, coming from a cold Baltic country but warming up the scene with her hot sexiness.
I’ve shot this set last november in Latvia on a cold winter day, outside it was snowing and made the atmosphere so nice, staying in a warm apartment with such a hot lady.
Before deciding to shoot her I took a look at her only sets appeared on Met until then, all shot by Balius, and I really liked her, she seemed to be a very smart and down-to-earth girl who is aware of how sexy she is and who has the right self confidence.
When Amanda arrived at the shooting all my impressions were confirmed. As she writes in her bio she really loves dancing and she is still doing it very often.
I have included the usual extra images as a bonus after the standard set, I played with the red of the dress and other sexy parts of her body, besides the classic black and whites, and also some candid images after the shoot which was very pleasant.
We both really hope you will appreciate our first set together and we are eager to show you more of our work soon.
P.S. A little curious fact: I have recognized this same location used in one of Koenart’s sets with another model. For those who like to play it could be fun to look for it..
C6C791, all my sets were shot within one month Celeste had started modeling, the same day, it was her 3rd shooting, so I confirm that she was new and nervous.
The sets by Luca were shot one month later and he surely knew better how to deal with her little experience.
I had already noticed the stats and they don't surprise me.
Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 on Virtea
You totally caught the point hipshot. Now wait and see for the newer sets.
Celeste will be happy to read the "over the top" rating, Driller.
CZM, I don't care that much about my scores by now, luckily it's something else that counts. But it's a real shame that the haters involve the models in their "1's campaign". Celeste is a sweet and shy girl and I am trying to convince her to start dropping a few lines about one of our sets, but this unpolite treatment towards our sets doesn't help.
I am aware it's not my best work, but no set on such a site like Metart actually deserves less than a 5 if you consider photography, or less than a 6 if we speak about models.
Hi hipshot, I know you like Celeste and you wish to see her in the right "light". As you have noticed in your later comment this set is still from last year, so you will have to wait the newer sets to see her at her best.
Hi Pab, everything you say is agreeable, as you can read from my post, which confirms your impressions. I will be glad to hear you noticing the difference when one of my latest sets with Celeste is published.
Hi Pad, everything you say is agreeable, as you can read from my post, which confirms your impressions. I will be glad to hear you noticing the difference when one of my latest sets with Celeste is published.
My fourth set with Celeste, still from our second shooting shot last august (which was actually the first that could be published since the first session got lost).
Celeste had just started modeling one month earlier and this must have been her third shooting in total. She would have needed more directions than I was actually able to give at the time, but one month only after losing all was too short and it shows.
As those of you have already commented Celeste deserves much more, consideration, and it will be my task to make her espress more of her potential in the next shootings.
I can already tell you that I've just shot new sets with her few weeks ago and I hope I'll have the opportunity to show them to you soon, so you'll be able to see her improvements due to a longer experience on her side and some recovered skills on mine.
Yes it's a pity, too busy and too short, but next time we will carve out some time to catch up somewhere.
Sunday, February 8th, 2015 on Femeha
Nice to see a set by Ken Tavos again, and tomorrow it will be two in a row.
His relationship with Lia seems special, she looks like she is somewhat shy but likes to melt down and expose herself to his lens and give us some viewing pleasure. I particularly like the elegant and neat setting, with a very good lighting, the perfect framework for Lia and her white long dress, looking so sexy on her. The tease with the panties are also very sexy.
Lia has a great body with PP and those long sexy legs.
Great job my friend, looking forward to more of your work here, starting from tomorrow with Nici Dee.
Thank you so much Jake, I really appreciate it when you point out the level of relationship I have with models, it's one of the things I care most about. About Vanessa, you can't but adore her..
Friday, February 6th, 2015 on Naesma
Thank you Convp, it seems Margherita has the right attitude to be a good erotic model, time will give her more experience making her able to show her intimate secrets in even more erotic ways.
Friday, February 6th, 2015 on Presenting Margherita
Hi kilroy, always nice to hear from you.
I'm very glad to have brought a "refreshingly different" addition to the family, I am trying to expand my list of featured models and Margherita surely adds something unusual. So now wait and see the other new girls from Hungary and Latvia coming soon! ;)
Thank you for the nice comment.
Wow hipshot, you've seen a while world in those deep dark brown eyes and it makes totally sense to me.
Interesting perspective DS
Hi J! you're welcome ;) it's always a big pleasure to bring a new girl here, there are so many beautiful and yet different beauties out there and it's a hard dirty job to find new ones but some have to to it... ;)
it's always rewarding to see a girl look comfortable in the pics especially in her first set like in this case.
Thursday, February 5th, 2015 on Presenting Margherita
Hi v_m, Margherita is surely not the usual Met girl and she has different features, no surprise that some like you may not find her particularly attractive, but it's good that you see some nice things in her like the way she looks at the camera.
Hi mincer, I don't know about the beer ad you mention but I agree she could sell a lot more of it.. It was a nice surprise to see her so playful and at ease with this first shooting, and she can even get better.
Hi Isabelle! it's nice to hear you like Margherita, she really has some unique features making her a little precious gem.
Your wish of seeing her in colors and heels is more than possible ;)
I knew you wouldn't miss that sweet little bottom sneaking out of the sweater Checkers.. ;)
Hi fer, yes.. she's a warm and inviting.. and she rocks! Margherita will be glad for your welcome ;)
Hi Ken! thank you for the credit... I thought of adding something that someone could find interesting, nothing really new but I think that something different from time to time is stimulating. I am grateful to K for letting the multiple shot pic here and on SA with the set with Lauren shaving.
BTW, I think that one of those sets you shot with Nici last year is going to be released soon... so get ready ;)
Thursday, February 5th, 2015 on Naesma
Hi Pab1, thank you for the nice words for me and for Margherita.
You can bet that Hungary has some very beautiful girls looking all very different from each other, so moving there wouldn't be a bad idea at all... ;)
Hi Frank, you have probably read the answers to some of your questions in my post, you already figured out the main features of the set even without knowing the story. And you're right about Margherita not being the average Met girl, it contributes to offering a wider range of girls for all tastes. Hungary itself offers quite a variety of ethnicities, you'll see when the next newbies I shot back in december will be released.
Ahoj CZM, well I guess you realized where I've found her.. Hungary is not far from Czech Republic.. and it has girls with a range of looks including Margherita's which is quite exotic.
Hi Neil, so glad to hear you like this sweet newbie.
A new model, my 3rd Hungarian honey after Sunshine and Csilla, and more to come this year.
I found Margherita during my latest shooting in Budapest this december.
As some have guessed already this was her first real erotic shooting but despite all it didn't take her long to start feeling comfortable and enjoy it. I wanted to leave in the set the very first photos in order to show her progress in feeling at ease with the poses. I also let her wear that white sweater which she was actually wearing when she arrived at the shooting, I only asked her to take off underwear and pants.
That petite figure with an almost exotic look hides quite a sparkling character, and after this very first set we even tried a set for Sexart, it was a challenge for her and she even enjoyed it. This is the only set for Met so far but I really think we will shoot again soon.
No black/whites this time, I didn't feel they would fit with the model/setting/lighting.
Wow KK, it seems we've done an excellent work ;)
I am particularly happy to read how much you estimate Vanessa, and I can only confirm that she has everything I could dream of in a model, and my wife and I feel privileged to be her friends. These are the best conditions to bring the best out of her.
Wednesday, February 4th, 2015 on Naesma
Vanessa was happy to read this monkeryma, and she is willing just like me to show you our next sets.
hipshot, when you really like a set it means you really enjoyed every part of it, so I am very glad to read this. I will work soon on the new sets.
Sorry for not having the time to reply to all the great comments but I was busy with shooting some new sets for you all, hopefully so much rewarding like this one. I shot again with Vanessa yesterday and she was so happy to see so many enthusiastic comments about her, she felt really flattered and honored for such attention.
I will try to reply a few of the comments these days, so come back to check.
Thank you so much for the very gratifying comments, I believed this set could be well received and I am more than glad to see that many of you appreciated it.
Now Vanessa and I are looking forward to showing you our latest work!
Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015 on Naesma
Hi Billyboy, I am flattered by your comment, and very glad you noticed the constraint of the setting which we overcame with the inspiration for poses, enjoying each single pose.
Although Vanessa is a bit shy for outdoors we are thinking of giving try this year.
Monday, February 2nd, 2015 on Naesma
Hi CZM, you can bet it will be a long relationship, we consider each other friends by now and we enjoy spending time and shooting together.
A late post for a special set today.
First of all, it was a special coincidence to meet Vanessa here in Prague (where I am now) after 4 months from the last time and have one of the set we shot back then released today. When we went for dinner all together last night we spoke about this special occasion and enjoyed the satisfaction of the good results of our work, without actually knowing how this set would be received. In fact today when we met again Vanessa was very happy and almost surprised to read such appreciation for her performance, her big brown eyes became even bigger and her smile sweeter when she read the comments. I've never seen her so much satisfied and gratified.
This set is special for another reason: when I arranged this shooting I was still in a difficult situation and the planning was not so easy and smooth for the reasons everybody knows by now, and the location I had booked almost lastminute was not like I expected, I was not very happy with the place overall and the available light, I was not so inspired and comfortable. But seeing Vanessa again brought a ray of light in the room. Her sweet freshness brought the inspiration I needed and I fulfilled the set with her beauty and innocent eroticism. Even in the post-production, seeing the photos again, I felt the same excitement and satisfaction I had while shooting, and it gave me new inspiration for the black & whites/desaturated pics and also the multiple shots with the sequences, one of the being quite daring and erotic, but I had no choice, I just had to include the photos and I am very glad that K let me do it.
All the gratifying comments and the appreciation for Vanessa make me realize how much the connection and the feelings between the photographer and the model pay back, and this gives me more strenght and inspiration for the next work.
As I am writing now I have just concluded my 3-days shooting in Prague, eager to show you all new and "old" beauties soon here on this great network.
Thank you all!
And there is one surprise coming up from Adam... More about it soon..
Sunday, February 1st, 2015 on Naesma
Just a quick message from VANESSA ANGEL:
"It's nice that today was published my set from September and yesterday I was shooting with my the most favorite photographer DeltaGamma and PhiGamma in Prague again .. everitime it's really funny and great work with good results and it's big pleasure for me to work on this photos and work with profesional and nice people :)"
My post will follow later, now busy with shooting in Prague.
fer, since you are the reference for Lucy's sets.. I am particularly glad to read your satisfaction. So glad we've made your week ;)
Sunday, January 25th, 2015 on Ricale
Hi Neil, your words make me feel happy.. fair exchange.. ;)
The feeling you describe is the best I could hope for after shooting a model, my goal is achieved, and when I work with models like Lucy everything is easier.
I also hope to show more galleries to you all, it's always a pleasure. Thank you!
Thank you hipshot :)
Saturday, January 24th, 2015 on Ricale
I am so glad to find another flattering comment from you Dreadnought several days after this set was released. Thank you!
Saturday, January 24th, 2015 on Edrom
A Diamon among diamonds.. Her eyes are amazing, true, a real doll who loves exposing herself for our pleasure.
I am really happy to hear you enjoyed the extras, as you know it takes time to prepare them on top of the standard set.
I am honored to hear this Ian Thomas.. if it is so it's also thanks to the members who support me enthusiastically, post constructive critiques and give me suggestions. Image #60 is dedicated to you then ;)
Hi Pab1! Thank you! I can confirm that it definitely "helps" to have such a beautiful model in front of my lens ;) not only beautiful but also inspiring for sexy images.
Here is my second set with Russian beauty Lucy Heart, set #65 on Met.
We shot this set the same day we shot Finme, last early september in Hungary.
It was our first shooting together, not counting a casting we did in Paris almost 2 years ago.
Lucy has a strong personality and a powerful sexuality, I noticed it since the first time we met, and this session unleashed all of her potential in front of my lens.
We had fun switching from a set for Metart to another for Sexart (coming soon) and also TLE (just published few days ago), changing setting, mood, look and spending a fruitful day together overall.
This set used a modern and simple setting, like the veranda of a nice apartment near a lake in Hungary, on a rainy day with overcast sky which made the lighting soft and constant.
Lucy wanted to use her new violet bustier which made her feel sexy, opted for a matching make up and then she played on the table showing her body from all sides.
We had a great time together and agreed to shoot again before the end of the year if the sets were well received on Met, so after our first set was released last november, realizing how many members liked her, we met again in Budapest for a new shooting with more sets the following month, which will be hopefully be released in the next weeks.
The bonus images are back with this set, with a few black & whites for the classic photography lovers, some desaturated pics for those who like unconventional style, and also some casual behind-the-scenes shots to those who are curious. Enjoy!
Thank you all for nice words, I think that people on Metart are very nice and have refined taste, I like it… You are different from other sites!))
and I am very happy to work for Metart!
I have shot more sets with DG last december and I look forward for showing the new sets to you all! ))
Have a nice weekend!))
I'm a little late today with my background comment, but before I post it here is a message that Lucy has just sent for me to relay it here:
Hi Jake, thank you for showing your more than welcome appreciation!
Saturday, January 17th, 2015 on Derima
you're probably right vger_man, the lack of sexy closeups is surely one of the factors, which is quite common in outdoor sets, and combined with the skinny/unhealthy issue the result is a low score no matter what the performance of the model or the photography are.
Hi C6, I am very glad to read your opinion about Sunshine's set, your description fits my idea about her too. She is as slender as a fashion model, she has the numbers for that, so she can't be considered skinnier or unhealthier than most catwalk models.
I am also glad to hear you appreciated the shorts, they looked fit to the setting.
Hi Driller, glad you liked the set. Unfortunately there are not such shots in this set but you will find them in one of the next sets with her
next time we will shoot AFTER dinner instead of before.. ;) Yes, maybe just a little weight would make her look better according to many members
I confirm kilroy and D_S, Sunshine is taller than what her bio shows, she is between 5'10" and 5'11"
Hi Beethoven, I totally agree with your description of Sunshine's beauty, yes she is a model, more a fashion/glamour model than the standard erotic model. I wouldn't change a thing.
I will consider your suggestion for the next outdoor sets l_l_c ;)
You're probably right RJinCO, in effect the last sets are also the latest on a time scale and she has lost some weight in effect, and that's even more visible for a girl who is normally already skinny.
I will have to shoot her in Italy again after a few days with delicatessen therapy...
Thank you for your words of appreciation for my work.
Friday, January 16th, 2015 on Derima
Thank you GPointman, a nice surprise to find your nice post a few days after the release, with such sweet words for my Angel..
Thank you for the wishes for a good 2015, I wish you the same and announce that I have just agreed another shooting with her in few days ;)

trickydick, the setting in this case drove the poses range, limiting the number of options but offering an unusual setting like a fence to play with. But there is something between a good and a boring set and I don't think this is as boring as you say, and a 7.70/7.80 rating is not what Sunshine deserves IMO, even if you blamed it all on the photographer.
newcoyote, I can understand that if you look at the pictures and compare Sunshine with the average Metart model she looks much thinner and less smiling, so that's probably why she looks not so healthy to your eyes, but after spending several days with her I can tell you that I never had this feeling (and this probably influences the way I look at her photos too): we had several meals and snacks together and spoke about habits and hobbies, and she is absolutely normal. She doesn't have problems with food, as those thinking she is anorexic may think. To have an idea after this set we went for dinner and she gave two options for dinner, spaghetti or pizza, and we went for a big pizza with a glass of wine and a dessert. She is definitely thin, but probably the fact she is also very tall (more than 180 cm) and the shape of her face/size of her eyes make her tend to look anorexic, but I can guarantee that she is totally healthy.
I'm glad you are sponsoring Sunshine's rating By man, she really deserves more, I can't understand why there is such a low rating trend lately, and since my photography hasn't changed much since the first sets with her and she even got a rating close to 9 and several well above 8 at the beginning I am starting to think that those who don't like me as a photographer (and commentator) and give several "1"s have an increasing influence as the total number of voters is decreasing, but it's bad that this affects Sunshine's sets because she doesn't deserve such treatment.
Hi Halialo, I am honored to see that your very first comment is for one of my sets, thank you!
Welcome back CzechMate, I was starting to miss your posts ;)
Glad you liked the country setting, and I like the idea of the chapters, if you consider the sets chronologically what you say is even more evident
it's interesting the contrast between the glamourous look and the countryside setting, good catch my friend
well said Gary, slender and somewhat busty, a rare combination
My 12th set with Sunshine, and more to come.
This set was shot last september, on a sweet end of summer in Hungary, in the nature. I had been waiting for an opportunity to shoot this tall and slender beauty in the nature, for a change, and also to see her enjoy feeling a sort of freedom and relax.
That's what I experienced on this and the other outdoor set posted, I found her much more relaxed, even having fun (her own way) and showing it.
We drove to the countryside to a farm with horses, in front of her while we shooting and while she was having some fun climbing on the fence.
It was the last shoot of the day, at sunset, a very nice day spent together in different locations.
After 3 shootings by now I find Sunshine much less enigmatic than she appeared at the beginning, and I have learned to interpret her facial expressions and understand her mood. She is really not an ordinary girl and despite the fact that she's not everyone's cup of tea I think she adds something special to this site.
Unfortunately no extras b/w or desats for this set.. Some will be happy about that ;)
Nice one Checkers ;)

Hi kilroy, I am glad to announce that there are several more sets with Nici waiting to be released, and I am planning to arrange new shootings with her soon, and of course I am very glad to hear how you learned to appreciate the way I portray Nici. She truly is beautiful and is a unique beautiful euro-asian mix. She speaks Czech and English, I haven't actually asked her if she speaks Vietnamese or other languages.
It's particularly nice to hear you haven't noticed a remarkable influence of that event, I clearly remember what I was feeling/thinking in those moments and I tried hard to focus on the photography, I am so glad I succeeded.
Thank you for the nice words.
Very glad to hear you appreciated the set LB, I couldn't agree more about your opinion on Nici's butt/legs..
Thank you LB, I was seriously considering of getting a pair of glasses... ;)
Thamk you Jake, too kind :)
Black & white, color filters, oblique framing, are all part of history of photography.
So what do you mean for "good photography"?
Maybe your own, personal, subjective idea of photography?
So that's ok, but then you should better say that "the photographer lets his art get in the way of the photography I prefer", that would be more correct and acceptable.
Thank you Greg! I will try next time! can I have a pair of your glasses?
Good idea Tucker, I actually have written down some time ago this hint, but I could do it only when the background and the sides of the setting allow it, when there are no distracting areas, and when the lighting direction permits it. Anyway I will refresh y old note with your suggestion, there is always need for something a bit different ;)
Hi Whiplash, it was nice to check back my past sets and find this beautiful comment about Sapphira and her wonderful smile. It still does something to me even after several shootings with her, it's something so magnetic and heart-warming, so irresistable. Reading that I succeeded in bringing out the best of her is the sweetest compliment to hear. Thank you, sir.

Hi DS, thank you for the flattering comment!
I usually keep the original order of when pics were shot, I don't remember significant exceptions, sometimes I may swap a few images in the starting sequences or other when there are a few repetitions, in order to better balance the overall sequence.
Glad you appreciated the desats and b&w, the clock and some poses/expressions of Nici inspired me for several pics.
It is all satisfying now that the hard times are gone, it was really hard to concentrate on the creative side of shooting those days but I must say is that I knew that every effort would have been paid back by a few words of appreciation, like yours and the other ones today.
About back up, fer_realz has already answered, but I can tell you that I have always done double back up, the problem is that that day I didn't think of putting one of the back ups away from the backpack. Useless to say that I learned the lesson well now.
actually Nici stayed in Rome for a week... that's better ;)
That's certified by the clock desertrat1, but time has different speeds with beautiful girls, so these 40 minutes with Nici are worth much more than usual ;)
I owe you more than a beer fer... Thank you for the nice thought, although I have come to appreciate much more nice comments than the ratings it's always good to see the models and the sets they are featured in with decent scores.
Thank you my friend!
semajw, I don't know if this impression comes from the number of pics of the set or from elsewhere, but I can tell you that you're far from the truth, I am not too enamored of my artistry/work, on the contrary, if you see through my other sets and read my comments you will see that I have declared several times that I wish to improve and get better and better, also with the help of constructive criticism. That's why I prefer comments where the reasons of satisfaction or dissatisfaction are explained, so that I can understand, otherwise it's just a totally subjective/biased/personal opinion.
Hi Magwich, I reckon that probably 233 pics were too much, but you may understand I was bewitched by Nici's charm and happyness and coulnd't stop pushing that button... ;)
Glad you enjoyed the set though, no need to deepen further ;)
Magwich, don't see it as a self-commiseration, I have moved forward, it's just that this set was shot 10 days after the robbery so it was tightly linked to the shoot, it's just a fact, but I can assure you that now I see it as a boost to my present and future work, totally positive about it.
Thank you for the great outlook Frank, this year I don't want to remind too much about what happened back then but for these sessions in particular with Nici it's unavoidable. As you write it was a hard time but Nici was the right medicine, a powerful, concentrated anti-depressive.
Thank you Moritz, it's always nice ot hear new voices here and of course it's even nicer when they appreciate the model and our work together. I will surely not let that robbery stop me, it's already in the past and I'm no longer affected by it, thanks to all those who supported me. Beauty and good feelings have already won and this year I have plenty of positive thoughts and projects. Looking forward to hearing from you in my next sets!
It's all because of Nici fer ;) Yes, she has really been adorable in all the 3 shootings we did, although you will never see the results of the second one which got stolen and was probably the best since we already knew each other and I was really inspired. But this year I want to see what happened as a challenge to do better and better, and surely Nici is in my list for a new shooting soon ;)
P.S. Next time I will tell Nici to keep the heels a bit longer... but already now I can tell you that we shot a nice one with red heels and it will be out hopefully soon ;)
Thank you AoB, if you admire beauty you couldn't help admiring Nici ;)
My 4th set with Nici, 63rd on Met so far.
This set was shot last august in Rome, in the same circumstances of set Ifadel. Swplf2 already explains thoroughly what were the feelings and atmosphere (thank you my friend).
What more to say about this sweet little gem called Nici? she is so fun to work with, I had very good memories about those days shooting together despite the hard times I was going through after loosing my gear, but she helped me focus on the fun part of shooting, trying to find for some inspiration among my thoughts.
The setting was an ordinary one, playing with the big clock marking the time as Nici showed her magnificent little body, changing a number of sexy poses and having fun.
The black & whites and the desaturated shots are back after a couple of skips.
Hi Baggy, you just found another sexy feature, quite unusual but it's another part of her body that looks so good. Glad that the different hairstyle highlighted her ears and made her appear under a different light.
I am particularly glad to hear you noticed Vanessa was at ease with me and phi, and I can tell you that we had a chat yesterday and she is looking forward to visiting us again soon in Rome for more shootings ;)

I am very glad you enjoyed the visit of this angel fer... ;)
And it's nice you liked the themed set with Vanessa appearing a bit different than usual, but always gorgeous.
Hi Whiplash00, thank you very much for the nice words of appreciation of both Vanessa and our work together, she has such iresistable features such as her "chocolate eyes" and her attitude of appearing at her best when completely naked.
Thank you as usual for appreciating my work kilroy, I am glad you agree with the idea of a themed set once in a while and also to hear you like the qualities you mentioned. And yes, Vanessa just needs to be herself and then half of the work is done ;)
Thank again my friend.
I got a message from Vanessa this morning asking me to post it here since she doesn't have a Metart account (although she has one for Sexart and she just wrote a message there too):
"Hi Davi, thank you very much .. Happy new year too ! Can you please write to my fans that I thank them very much for nice comments and that it makes me happy and that they can looking forward to our next work? Dekuju :) See you soon! :)"
And it's a twin-set! The one I shot right after this one! Great choice K! :)
Well said Dreadnought.
Being my wife French and being the freedom of expression one of my beliefs, I am also very touched by the tragedy of yesterday in Paris. If beauty ruled the world these horrors would never happen.
May God bless those who survived and those who lost their beloved ones. Vive la liberté, vive la France.
well said doggleboon: underrated, elegant and classy.
Wednesday, January 7th, 2015 on Asimila
Hi Ian, I am always happy to read such positive comments about models I really consider special, because they deserve to be appreciated for their beauty, and Vanessa's beauty is incontrovertable, so your 10 totally makes her justice (and thank you for my 10 as well.. it balances a few "1"s I keep getting for some unclear reason).
You are also right that on Metart Vanessa's sweet smile and photogenic qualities can be much better appreciated, although on Sexart we see a more unhinibited and erotic side of her that is something really good as well. And I can tell you that she IS special, no mistery ;)
Frank, thanks for the outlook on Vanessa and the very interesting ethimology lesson on her name!
Glad to see that since your post Vanessa's rating increased to 9.04, as several members wrote she is quite underrated and she deserves more consideration.
By man, it's nice to hear you like Vanessa and my work, and I can understand if this set is not among your favorites, as I explained I decided to shoot a set in this style in order to match the location and also to show a different, more sophisticated side of Vanessa. That said, I also agree that Vanessa is at the top of her beauty when she her fresh look is highlighted, so you can be sure that in most of her sets she will look that way. This was just an exception in order to add some variety.
Hi Driller, I will be pleased to bring more Vanessa with casual outfits or swimsuits. And don't worry, I don't think she'll cut her hair, she likes it long ;)
I also prefer the natural look in general, but I chose this look in order to match the setting (not fit for modern outfit/look) and for variety: metart has so many sets that you can't have them all the same style.
Great to know that K! :)
we will monkeryma ;) thank you
Hi DS, your comment is rewarding, I am particularly glad you have such consideration for the elements composing this set. It's true that I am a newcomer if compared to the masters here, and for this reason becoming one of your favorites is pleasant twice.
Nice to hear that fer, I wanted to show another side of Vanessa and I'm glad you liked it
Thank you Notregde, your words are much appreciated
Starting the new year with an Angel..
My fifth set with one of the sweetest girls I ever met. This set was shot last september, my last shooting in Prague so far. I had chosen an old fashioned location in the heart of the town which inspired me for an old fashioned look and outfit as well. A bright sun was sneaking inside the room despite the frequent clouds, so that the gold/silver and purple notes were highlighted enriching the images.
Although Vanessa is the quintessential girl-next-door this time we both liked the idea of trying a look of a lady from the Victorian age, precious and elegant.
I know I don't deserve most of the praises, I am quite down-to-earth and aware I need to improve, there's no risk I consider myself a "Maestro", but of course nice words of appreciation are a great way to motivate me, so they will always be welcome.
Saturday, December 20th, 2014 on Korinsi
good to know MW :)
I am surprised how you didn't mention the lack of natural body hair this time...
I guess the flattery of the set overwhelmed the issue.
well said Rose :)
too kind Jake... I'll take it :) although I rather feel like an unknown folk singer at a county fair...
Hi again Whiplash, you're becoming a regular commenting my sets ;)
Yes Celeste truly embodies the girl next door, so fresh and simple, and no surprise you particularly liked the candid shots at the end of the sets, they really give the idea of her genuine attitude.
That pink robe is what she wears during the breaks, I guess it's a hint coming from Sapphira, so it shouldn't be a problem shooting her with that next time, ideas are always welcome.
I am always glad when someone shows appreciation for the time I take to share insights and behind the scenes stories, before becoming a photographer for Met I always wished to know more about the sets, so when I started shooting and the comments feature was implemented it I just had to share what I could.
I'll be glad to hear your opinion on my next sets with Celeste and the other models I shoot.
Hi Chester, nice to hear a new voice from someone who enjoys my work in general, I try to leave the stage to the models' beauty and personality so I prefer simple locations and minimal retouching, "natural style" fits me ;)
thank you for encouraging with your appreciation, I will be glad to bring more work and extras.
Thank you as usual fer, Celeste is all about sweetness and lovelyness
Magwich, as I just wrote to C6 I can agree with your overall disappointment, it means that when I am not 100% it shows in my work, therefore it's a heartfelt work, in both good and bad ways. I am planning to shoot Celeste again now with my own camera and my own lenses and being more self-confident than in those days after the robbery, let's see what comes out.
I was aware of that C6, as I wrote I booked the location for the shooting with short notice, because having to borrow my gear and getting some money for arranging the shoot 4 weeks after the robbery didn't allow me to plan things a lot in advance and with adequate budget. I consider this an "emergency" shooting, I wanted to react to the robbery and the loss of the first sets with Celeste by repeating the shooting as soon as possible, didn't matter where, so that's the reason why the setting isn't great. The repetition also comes from the not extraordinary inspiration due to the fact that I was still being affected by the traumatic event, and being Celeste a beginner didn't help with variety. So I can agree with your disappointment.
trickydick, I do consider myself an amateur, so everything sounds good to me.
hotte, sometimes is better to have nothing running through our minds rather than expressing such disrespect, frustration, anger, envy, rudeness, insensitivity, arrogance, like in your case.
you are free to express your ideas even when they are hypercritical, as long as they are respectful, but you don't seem to know what this word means.
and I think I missed the part in which you have been nominated the official custodian of erotic photography standards, so sorry I can't comply with those.
Hi hipshot, I am always glad when you like a model I shoot, I know your tastes are so ordinary so it's one more reason to be satisfied when I read such words of appreciation for a lovely girl like Celeste. It's a pity she's so underrated, but she will get better, future is on her side.
My 3rd set with Celeste, #61 on Met and #111 on the network, another "double release" with Melena's set on Sexart today.
The end of the year has been a firework for me, I could never think of this after the july robbery, so despite all it will turn out as a very good year.
I already wrote about Celeste and our "lost" debut sets back in july, but that's the past, now looking forward to a brighter future.
The repetition of our shooting one month later hasn't been easy, borrowed gear and still a heavy stone on my stomach, so it wasn't easy to find the inspiration especially with a beginner like Celeste, although she had even gotten better at posing since her first experience, so I guess the reason for the low scores so far is mostly due to the photography.
This set in particular was the first one we shot that day in Prague, I had booked with short notice a similar loft apartment I had used in april for shooting Vanessa Angel and Sabrisse, a modern setting with big windows for a good amount of natural light.
Celeste had travelled early in the morning, not sleeping much, therefore she was supposed to feel tired later that day since we had planned to shoot until the mid afternoon, but the start was really good: we had breakfast all together with her and my friend Peter Guzman who was helping and assisting me those days. I found her enthusiastic about shooting together again, she had had a couple more shootings since her very first one with me but she said she had very good memories about that first experience (I couldn't say the same since it all went lost.. but the shooting itself was really nice).
What I like about Celeste is the fresh beauty, totally girl next door and down to earth look/attitude, the enthusiastic approach to the shooting and the will to learn/improve posing, also thanks to her friend Sapphira's precious hints.
I really hope that despite the below average level of photography for this set viewers will appreciate Celeste's actual features and potentiality until our next shooting, hopefully soon (these days we are arranging one for the next weeks).
The "extras" are back with some black & white and this time also a few behind the scenes shots.
thank you guys for explaining once more the value and the meaning of the black & whites and desats
Tuesday, December 16th, 2014 on Betens
Thank you JB, Paula will be happy to hear your words, they are more important than ratings. About Paula, you said it all, she has a number of great features!
DS, once again you caught the essence of the set and Sunshine herself. Establishing a good relation with the model is very important especially for those models who have a sensitive character and complex personality like Sunshine.
I am also glad to hear you liked those particular shots, I am trying to include them more often in my sets, to make some photos more genuine and spontaneous, also fit for black & whites (which I couldn't prepare for this set due to lack of time).
I can promise I will keep working to obtain more heart-felt smiles from Sunshine, it is taking time but the results are already visible.
Tuesday, December 16th, 2014 on Siyane
Thank you my friend, I am very glad you also noticed the change!
Wow Snake! I'll believe it ;)
Making Sunshine look this way is the greatest satisfaction.
By man, your notes about the shoes and the other one about the "model face" are agreeable, but in this case the shoes probably helped making Sunshine feel more confident and therefore showing her sexier side. Some models need a touch of freedom in choosing accessories and style for performing better.
Hi More Met, with such nick I am not surprised you would expect more than 166 pics.. ;) I am glad you enjoyed it!
nice to hear that mincer, she actually felt very comfortable with herself and this has surely contributed to exuding confidence and resulting sexier.
that's funny.. the Gammas...
Really good catches Dark Storm, both the "model face" issue and the mentality that Sunshine might have had at the beginning. She is a complex, thoughtful girl as erotic models rarely are. I am glad you could see all this through her sets.
swplF, thank you for anticipating the most valuable information today while I was coming back home. I am particularly glad you consider this set the best one with Sunshine, I had the same feeling while shooting her that day, she seemed a new person and I am confident she will keep opening in the next shootings.
You're right about complaining for her ratings, I can understand she is not the average model but this should go beyond the rating of the single set.
Nice phrase Checkers, not everybody can imagine the real effect she has on a man when she appears, you can't see it clearly in the photos if you don't look throughly, and I'm glad you did it.
Hi fer, you totally caught the "secret" of the set: she enjoyed everything from her shoes to the makeup/hairstyle, and this enjoyment shows in the picture.
Neil. I am glad you appreciate these aspects in the set and in Sunshine, it is also what makes shooting with Sunshine special. It's... no secret ;)
Another late post for my MetSet #60 (#110 overall) and my 11th with Sunshine.
This set was shot 3 months ago in Hungary and it’s funny how today I am back from another shooting in that country. It was the end of the summer then, the weather was exceptionally good and we even had the chance to shoot outdoor in the morning (set Sanoje), and the weather put us all in a good mood. I still had to borrow my gear at the time so arranging the shooting was not so easy, but I took the chance of having a few more days off my regular job and left for Hungary. I arranged it with Sunshine quickly since we already knew each other after shooting already twice together. When we met I had the feeling she was more open and comfortable than before, she had just moved to the city and was happy about that and a few other things in her life.
We had planned to shoot the whole day, changing different locations both outdoor and indoor.
For this set in particular I let her choose both the make up/hairstyle and the outfit once given the location and the style, and she seemed happy about that, resulting in a more relaxed and open attitude, which in these photos shows more than in the previous sets we shot.
Another peculiarity of this set, as swplf2 has already revealed, is that the set was prepared entirely by my wife Phi, she was so enthusiastic about the set itself, seeing Sunshine in this happier mood, that I trusted her being able to pick up the right photos and choose the most effective image style.
It really was Ken, I enjoyed it. I will update you privately but I hope to show everybody the latest treats here soon ;)
Tuesday, December 16th, 2014 on Renle
I'm very glad that Ken and I both have a set today out on Met with two Hungarian beauties! And right when I came back from Budapest!
I must confess that I would also have liked to shoot Zafira some time ago, but when I see her portrayed by my friend here so well there is almost no need to do it..
Well done my friend, I am glad to see you back with some work here after another Hungarian honey like Lia Taylor, I have the feeling there will be many more girls from this country on the network from now on ;)
After 2 years from my first shooting with Paula Shy here is our first set on Metart, #59 for me and #108 on the network.
Paula really looks shy with clothes on, but when she turns into an erotic model she transforms into an exciting young woman who knows what men want. We have been shooting a few Sexart sets already but in this Metart set she shows her playful side and her ability in posing, as well as her perfect body and figure. Her big brown eyes are as sweet and tender as Paula really is.
This set was at the very start of the fall in Prague, it was sort of a repetition of the shooting we had done in july and which was lost along with all the other sets. I even tried to book the same location but it was not available, so I could not try to repeat the same settings, but I will do it one day.
After waiting so long to see a set of mine with Paula published on Met gives me another little piece of that self confidence which got lost together with the stolen sets, so I am glad this happened before the end of the year, it has a symbolic value to me.
What more to say about this set, Paula was a bit excited because it was an important day in her life, but I won’t give too many details, let’s say that she had a special thing to celebrate in the evening, so we made sure we finished by a certain time, but we were not in a rush at all, every time with her is a very nice experience, since our very first shooting back in november 2012 which was actually her very first shooting. I even have one set I had shot already but it wasn’t published at that time.
Sorry for posting this after so long but as I wrote earlier I am in Budapest shooting new girls for Met, I just finished and I am quite satisfied about the work, I hope I will have some of these sets published soon. Now I have to go, packing and doing multiple back up of the sets I just shot….
Monday, December 15th, 2014 on Betens
Wow swplF.. about being long winded... I haven't actually read this yet because as you know I am in Budapest starting to shoot right now, but I will surely read your post during my first break and I am sure it will be very interesting as your posts always are.
Thank you for entertaining the viewers while I am busy... I will get back later today.
Ok hip #56 is for you ;)
Saturday, December 13th, 2014 on Devane
Hi Whiplash, I'm always hlad to hear new voices and your with such a welcome appreciation about my work with Vanessa is particularly pleasant. Hearing I captured her beauty like she deserves makes me very gratified. Thank you!
You can be sure you'll see much more of Vanessa, there are more sets waiting to be released for our viewing pleasure.
Friday, December 12th, 2014 on Irmana
Hi Neil, you just described Vanessa's essence perfectly, knowing her well I can say that it's the same feeling I have about her.
After reading such appreciation for Vanessa I just decided to call her for another shooting this winter, I would nevet get tired of shooting such an angelic beauty.
Now get ready for the fourth Czech beauty this sunday... Paula Shy is half Czech-half Vietnamese and she's a unique combination of gorgeousness.
Hi Jake! Czech girls are dangerous... They kill softly ;) So it's a brave move to offer your services as assistant in one of my next trips to Prague... You sure...? ;)
I hope you recovered from Lauren (and now Vanessa...;))
How could I deny JB, Lauren has a body close to perfection and her breasts are no exception.
I am really glad to read you enjoyed many photos showing that part of her and the rest as well. And she is even more beautiful when she smiles.. so I'll remind her next time ;) Thank you my friend!
Thursday, December 11th, 2014 on Devane
Thank you kilroy, you're always so nice when speaking about my sets and the models I shoot, and in this case also about the "bonus" images, suggesting very clearly the best way to take (or not) advantage of them. Thank you my friend.
Thank you monkeryma for the fast and welcome congrats :)
Thursday, December 11th, 2014 on Irmana
My set #4 with Vanessa, #58 on Met, #107 on the network.
What to say about Vanessa. She is such a sweet, lovely and beautiful young girl, another of my very favorite models, one I'd never get tired of shooting with. She also spent a week in Rome with me and my wife last june and we can consider us friends by now.
This set was shot few weeks before that trip, it was in Prague last april. The modern plain location and the window nearby letting a soft morning sunlight get in and lighten Vanessa's pale skin, along with our relaxed moods, were the ideal conditions for the shooting. I wanted a very simple and minimal make up and her normal hairstyle and a very simple outfit, just a white shirt, in order to leave the stage to Vanessa's pure beauty.
Unfortunately at the time I hadn't started adding my extras with black & white and desaturated images on a regular basis and didn't have the time to prepare a few, before the set was published, my working rhythm has been very high since the july misfortune and couldn't do everything I wished, so I had to give priority to the shootings and the standard editing.
But there will be many more sets with Vanessa coming in the future with many extra images.
That's right hipshot, we clarified a few things at the end of last summer and we are ready to shoot together again. It's nice to hear you think her work with me is one of the best, maybe being aware of that would have avoided such a long break, but it seems over now.
Wednesday, December 10th, 2014 on Devane
I'll do my effort to help Lauren get to that status soon, well said Checkers.
You're totally right, you can see more of the model in b&w, not only the physical peculiarities (and imperfections), but even deeper in her eyes, close to her thoughts. Black & white is not at all about being old fashioned or just older style, it's simply out of time, that's why I think that a timeless, eternal beauty such as that represented on Metart deserves some images which will survive all trends and styles.
Hi C6, I am very happy to hear you like the extras at this point. This set actually inspired me for a total black & white processing, but I couldn't leave the standard images out, so I opted for a 70%-30%.
Hi hipshot, now that "even" you seem to like the set I can consider myself satisfied...
Joking, it's not a surprise that you enjoyed this set, I know about your appreciation for Lauren and for relaxed/intimate setting indoor, but it's always pleasant to read it from you.
I am particularly glad to read this DS.
It took a whole evening, until bedtime, to work on the selection for the B&W's/desat, it has been a hard choice because the setting and Lauren's poses/expressions concurred to create many images suitable for that type of editing, so I had to choose carefully in order to keep a certain balance with the standard color images. I decided to leave a considerable amount of processed images, even redoing some of the colors in B&W/desat because they looked two different images and viewers should have seen both of the versions. I was a bit afraid that it could be an unbalanced set, but you confirmed that it stayed a pleasant set to view.
Thank you for letting me know, it really pays back the efforts!
Hi DS, in effect these are my favorite lighting conditions, so that was an exception.
Since you like it, I'm glad to dedicate pic #156 to you
kilroy, swplf's posts are something always worth to wait for. We have come to the point that he waits for my sets and I wait for his posts...
I can agree the critigue fer... I could shoot more of her behind but it must be her magnetic green eyes to hypnotize me...
You're right, Lauren here looks even more elegant and refined than usual, thanks to a few factors, starting from the outfit, but also the setting with the soft lighting and relaxed atmosphere. And it has been hard to select only few images for B&W and desaturation, there were so many inspiring ones that I had to include quite a lot of them.
Thank you for the appreciation.
Thank you for remarking it Neil, this is exactly what I meant by shaping my sets that way. It's really a gift, it takes time and it doesn't get me aything more than the 120 standard pics, but I do it with pleasure for those who appreciate, like you.
and let me dedicate pic #144 to you my friend ;)
Glad to hear that bobblehat, I have submitted this set not long ago but I had the feeling it would be well received by you viewers, because of Lauren's positive mood, her stunning look and the favorable conditions for an overall very pleasant shooting, which reflects in the images with some nice poses and facial expressions. So as I did in my last set with some of the viewers appreciating some pics in particular.. pic #82 is dedicated to you ;)
I like that Neil, it could actually be my signature. It's the ideal situation for my sets and puts me in the perfect mood for shooting and being inspired, and it's nice that you get that feeling. I will pas you regards to Lauren ;)
Hi J, I really feel honored! I can imagine the effect she had on you, in this set she is really beautiful with the light kissing her skin in a pleasant setting. I am glad you enjoyed the B&Ws too and everything else. Thank you so much for the very gratifying words, I am even more satisfied about this set now and I just have to shoot Lauren again, we are a good team after all ;)
Great post my friend, so many interesting points and gratifying words that I am truly pleased and so very happy about how things are turning lately, I thought that the month of june could be irrepeatable somehow after what happened in the summer but you make me realize I was so wrong.
Thank you so much!
Rose, having given this picture of those moments really makes me glad, I wanted to share the pleasure with you all (and sorry if it made you envious..;))
My set #10 with Lauren, #57 on Met, #106 on the network.
I shot this set last year in a villa in the countryside near Rome, so far our last shooting.
It was a warm and sweet end of the summer and that year we had been shooting together 3 times in 6 months, enjoying it a lot. At the time Lauren was my favorite model and we got along very well, spending nice days with my wife and our cat, whom she loved since she is a cat lover too.
This set is actually one of those shot on our last day of shooting, it was a perfect sunny late morning, the light from the big window inspired me for using this table and having Lauren wear an old fashioned bustier. The soft lighting gently caressed her skin and the light green walls matched her deep green eyes. I remember a thoroughly satisfying feeling while shooting, everything was perfect.
It's a pity we haven't been working together since that day, but we are arranging a new shooting soon.
I include a number of black & whites and desaturated shots as an extra.
Thank you Arkie, I appreciate the depth of your comment, I like your view of Edwige as a mature young woman and the considerations which followed. I am glad you liked the set overall.

I guess you will see much more of Edwige on Met, Rock.. Stay tuned ;)
Sunday, December 7th, 2014 on Fretha
I appreciate your critique Fred, it's also well motivated as you say about my approach, it tells about your taste so I can understand it.
I am glad you caught the link between me and Edwige, it's one of the things I wanted the images to show.
I am also glad you appreciate the b&w and you are aware of its value, and I am honored you look forward to my sets for that.
Finally, why not? I gladly dedicate pic #101 to you who seem to be one of her greatest fans ;)
Saturday, December 6th, 2014 on Fretha
Hi C6, it's so nice to hear such enthusiastic words about Edwige, it makes me very glad to have offered you a new set with her and some images to keep. Sorry to have desaturated the jumper in that pic..
With the new gear shooting is a real pleasure, so you can be sure that I will shoot new sets with your "sex kitten cherub".. ;)
Thank you Dutch! I'll pass to Edwige ;)
Hi J, even after 100+ sets on this network it's always so rewarding to read such enthusiastic words of appreciation for the models I shoot and for my work. When I think of those days one month after the robbery and how hard everything was, now everything feels so good, both the appreciation and even the critiques, since I wasn't even sure I would be able to shoot again so soon. So having this set among your very favorite sets is as an unexpected, great gift.
Grazie my friend!
Hi kilroy, my friend, I love your approach to my sets, with nice points about the photography/photographer and the models so pleasant to read.
The trimmed body hair really is a trademark, and perfectly matches the old-fashioned overall look of Edwige's body, and as you notice at the very beginning she wasn't like that, I remember her back in 2010 she was shaved, maybe following the trend of the other young models. Then her personality came out.
I am very glad to hear you appreciated the way I portrayed her, she was really "glowing" during the shoot so it was automatic to shoot her in such setting, resulting so intimate and pleasant to view.
Thank you as usual, my friend.
P.S. I don't know if you read any of my previous invites for you to get in touch, if you wish just check one of your last posts
I didn't count the set of Edwige with Luka B, so you're right it's set number 6 in total with her, I should have read better..
Sorry DS, although I understand you may not like bright images I have to disagree about the overexposure of Edwige, because she is not. If you don't let your eye be influenced by the overlit background you will see that the model is not overexposed: there may be some brighter small contour lines of her face and bodyparts when she is turned towards the background, but the face and the whole body are not overexposed. As I just wrote in reply to Checkers below, when a background is not interesting or when it's potentially distracting, like in the case of the view from that window (an inner courtyard and buildings), I chose to have it overexposed in order to focus only on the model.
Anyway I knew that backlit sets are not everyone's cup of tea, so I also shot part of the set away from the window.. ;)
I like this perspective Checkers.. next time people complain about backlit photography I may use this phrase... ;)
Seriously, although I was aware that a bright background may raise some complaints, but it inspired me and Edwige also liked the idea, so we went for it. There are so many sets with her that I also had to consider doing something a bit different. The change of the angle with the last part of the set shot next to the window and not in front of it was also driven by that awareness, trying to give a more standard lighting. Anyway when a background is not so interesting or when it's potentially distracting, like a random view from a window, I prefer to have it overexposed in order to highlight only the model without giving importance to the background, of course trying not to overexpose the model.
Hi fer, no surprise you are devoted to such Goddess... ;)
I may have used a longer red dress (which I actually used on Melena some time later) but I chose this one for two reasons:
1. Edwige liked it and felt comfortable with it, being her own and worn in real life;
2. A longer dress would result too elegant for the setting I chose, a kitchen table next to a window, so I wanted something halfway between classy and casual, better matching the setting.
I think that there are very few outfits not resulting erotic on Edwige... ;)
Glad you liked the make up and hairstyle, we wanted something different for a change which could suit the setting and the outfit, and I think this one worked.
I shot other two sets that day, and I am willing to see them released in the next months.
Ingoodtaste, Edwige's skin is not actually so light as you may think, she actually is darked than the typical Czech girl and lightly tanned most of the year, especially in the summer.
Backlit photography tends to produce images lighter than normal, since you have to expose the photos more if you want to see something of the model out of the natural shadow coming from the back, unless you use strong frontal lighting which actually totally changes the style meant for this setting.
I don't know what you mean exactly with the quality of the photos, I am actually quite satisfied with it, unless you refer to the style choices, but then it's a different matter and you should use different words.
If you don't like black and white photos you could just stop at pic #134, the last photo in full color, after viewing more than the standard 120 pics for a set. Black & whites are mostly for photography connoisseurs and those who also love Photography as a form of art and not just a media for showing beautiful naked women, so you have choice.
So let me dedicate pic #150 to you Rose ;)
You're welcome KK ;) Shooting and showing Edwige's beauty is always a pleasure
Hi mincer, I hadn't noticed that, thank you!
Glad you liked the red dress, it was Edwige's choice because she felt comfortable with it, she actually wears it in real life.
Hi Snake, you said it perfectly, Edwige is all of that, and she could be defined a "mischievous ray of light".. and also fun, smart.. in one word, wonderful.
I am always glad to share her beauty with you all.
swplf2, I actually have to wait for your posts to see things from a broader perspective.. I could never imagine such a career for Edwige when we met the first time, she was not shy but she hadn't shown her personality yet, but already the second time I could see it, and it was clear that this was her destiny, to please us all.
Hi Neil, thanks for the words of appreciation both for Edwige and for the photography. The setting details you described were actually what made us opt for this, it looked something intimate and cozy, it was actually a sunday afternoon and we had a tea during a break but you caught the atmosphere. Keep dreaming ;)
My set #5 with Edwige on Met, #55 on the site and #105 on the network.
Edwige has always been one of my favorite models, I shot her at the very beginning of her career back in the fall of 2010 (although not for Met) and ever since we’ve had a special relationship and met several times.
This set is a post-disaster one, it was shot at the end of last august, when I went back to Prague to shoot again one month after the theft of my gear, still with borrowed camera and lenses. I wanted to shoot some special models on that occasion, like Mia Sollis and Edwige, after more than one year and a half from the last shooting together (featured on TLE, a soft girl/girl with Mia Sollis and another one with Tracy Lindsay; unfortunately she wouldn’t to more than that).
She had been traveling around the world during these months, shooting here and there, and changing look, being a playful young girl who likes to have fun. When she came to the shooting it was strange to see her blond since we always shot with her being a brunette, but I knew it since we had been in touch on socials.
Although she is a very good self-make-up artist I had her sitting and relax while my make up artist took care of her, and we started talking. She knew about the misfortune which happened to me but not in detail, so we started from that and talked about many things all throughout the shooting. We started with this table next to the window, as some rays of light were sneaking in. She chose her new red dress which made me think of a shapely Marilyn Monroe and we started. We went on talking and talking and the shooting took much more than usual, but it was so pleasant shooting and talking that we both didn’t mind (although she almost risked to miss her evening train at the end of the shoot).
Having this special set released now, when things are much better than those days, makes me really glad, because Edwige was one of the first models I shot for Metart when we were both beginners and now that the hard days are finally behind it’s really satisfying to sit back and enjoy it.
I will surely share the results here Ken, thanks for the wishes, if I don't shoot Lia now it will be soon ;) And I will let you know when I come to Prague again, our beer is waiting.. ;)
Friday, December 5th, 2014 on Holde
Lia looks very sweet and has a body with sensual shapes, beautifully captured by Ken's lens.
I like the overall feel of the set, Lia looks a bit shy at the beginning but becoming more and more relaxed, willing to please the viewer with her assets.
Well done Ken. Welcome back Lia, it would be nice to have more visits by you.
You never know hip, sometimes people are strange..;)
Monday, December 1st, 2014 on Jicho
Hi Davy (nice name ;)), thank you for the very welcomed nice words about this set, it doesn't surprise me that such a gorgeous sexy girl like Melena is one of your favorites but hearing this set and also myself are so high in your consideration really makes me happy.
Sunday, November 30th, 2014 on Jicho
P.S. for your stats, if you haven't noticed her score increased from 9.20 to 9.21
Hi swplF, I have been waiting for you post today and now I can finally go to sleep.. you know I'm busy these days but I took some time to take part in the nice discussions here. You gave an all-round perspective on Melena's career so far and I found out several things I didn't know or hadn't noticed, so thank you for the detailed outlook.
As you write this is not my only set with Melena, we have shot a few more sets back in august in Prague when this set was shot, for Met and also for Sex, and then we have shot a few more in october in Italy, so there is plenty to see from our collaboration, and although she has a lot of work anywhere it will be a pleasure to shoot her again next year.
Thanks for the (late but welcome) post!
You should've seen the smile on MY face Rose... ;) she doesn't just look, she IS delicious.. ;)
nice to hear from you, and thank you for your very welcome congrats!
I am very glad you liked all the features of this set with gorgeous Melena, she is a real blessing for any photographer because she is not only very professional making each shoot easy and satisfying under technical aspects, but she also really puts all herself in the work really enjoying it and even getting excited by her own poses. Of course I will work with her again, and we actually had a second shooting a couple of months later thatn this, which made us very satisfied about the results, and I am sure you will too when you see it ;) And we could even shoot an outdoor set in a natural setting (it's not on the ocean but there are some greens and a blue sky). Next year it would be great to go shoot in some exotic location on the beach ;)
Thanks once again for the enthusiastic comments! :)
Hi swplf2's C! I was getting worried not hearing from your husband, he couldn't miss my first Melena. So you couldn't resist.. easy to believe ;) Have a nice sunday!
Thank you Birthday Cake.
Yes, she is the ultimate evolution of the sexiest girl ;)
thank you Dutchman, that's exactly the feeling I had while shooting her, absolutely perfect conditions to bring out the best in each other. Very glad you loved the set, and you should see the others we shot that day ;)
that's right C6C791, and in euros it would be even more... and what about her PP..? ;)
so glad to read this kilroy, you couldn't make me more gratified. And I couldn't ask for a more perfect model: Melena really has everything, the only problem is that you would never stop shooting her.. especially when she shows so much fun and is so inspired for poses, it's a real pity to stop her! You got it right, she radiates not only eroticism but also happiness.
Thank you so much for the really nice words my friend.Btw, I would be glad if you got in touch with me on fb (Davi Deltagamma) or twitter (@deltagamma_74) for nice chats ;)
I guess the times could change, but when you have several years of tradition with a certain policy it's a hard choice, you must respect both the viewers and the history of the website.
All you can do is let your voice be heard and if the vast majority of the members agree with you you may finally see what you wish in the future.
Btw, I love Melena's black cat tat..
hi ergo, nice to hear you have a super favorite and you appreciate the extra images. Actually you're right about the amount of images, I am working on having an average set of about 150-160 images, with 120-130 standard pics, 20-30 extras and a few backstage shots, but selecting the images to cut from a set with Melena is really hard.. and it would need some more time to spend on it, so this time I preferred to leave a few more images hoping viewers would not get bored.
that's 100% Melena in 4 words
Hi DS, reading about this bright light issue and the fact I got it right is really gratifying. Actually I knew I could have some problems with the bright light that day but I tried to take advantage of the colors of the outfit and of Melena's skin.
So you enjoyed experimenting with colors.. ;) If you have a software that allows you to work on each single color channel then it's not so difficult, just desaturate the orange and a bit of red and yellow to have the skin black/white and the let the other colors come out. Anyway it's really nice to hear you like these extras, they need time to be done but as long as there is someone like you showing appreciation I will keep spending time to do it.
how can we deny that kk.. ;)
yes hipshot, working with her especially one month after the tragedy had happened helped my attitude a lot, I could concentrate on her instead of the bad memories.
You're right about the colors.. she just loves bright fluo colors, yellow, pink and green in particular. Glad you appreciated the B&W work. Actually the pussy shots were not colorized, I just desaturated all colors except the red, and since it was really red hot.. (and wet as well.. as you can see).
She really helped me fight my depression... ;)
Thank you! two lovely Russians on the same day for me!
Hi fer, your joy also overjoys me.. I know it's easy to shoot Melena but it's incredible how the power she has over us viewers is neverending and always so strong. She is so absolutely sexy.. in any colour! ;)
Yes she did convince me to broaden my color palette.. it still depends on the setting I choose but throughout our shootings I have tried to let her wear the colored outfits she liked, like in this case.
Actually the swimsuit slipped in between her cheeks.. I could have taken it out but I would probably be burnt... ;)
I am eager to show you the several other sets with Melena, she has many with several photographers so it will take some time but every time it will be another special day worth the wait ;)
that's a great pose indeed ;) No wonder why Melena is a great poser
you always know how to make me really glad.. I'll never have enough of hearing I'm your favorite artist here, and ther reasons you write are so very rewarding. We really enjoyed this shooting, it was such a pleasant feeling that already after few shots I knew I had to shoot her soon again.
Honored to have another set in your collection ;)
My first set with the spectacular Melena, #55 on Met and #103 on the network.
This set was shot at the end of the summer, when I went back to Prague to repeat the lost shooting, still using borrowed gear from friends. I found by chance she was there for some months so we arranged it. I knew she was a top but didn't know how she really was, and I must say I was surprised in a very positively way. She is a hard worker, extremely professional and also a great poser, making the shooting very smooth and fast, but what was even nicer to discover was her great attitude, looking so happy to shoot, with a sweet smile while spreading a fresh eroticism all around. She also loves colors, she had brought plenty of colorful outfits for the shooting, like this one.
I liked the early afternoon sunshine lighten the room, used this little pouf to help her with the posing and the set came out with plenty of interesting images. I have included several b&w and desaturated images to add a different perspective on the set.
I was so happy for the shooting that it didn't take long to figure out another one soon in Italy, which would have been my first with the new gear, the real new start.
Jake, it's always pleasant to hear such nice words from you, it's me who should thank you ;)
Friday, November 28th, 2014 on Ravasi
Dracula & angel Sabrisse, I like it! Nice to hear you enjoyed this set Ouchstopit. The white fabric/tulle is one of the props I always being with me for my shootings (as well as my beloved silver hand mirror and a matching brush). Here I was in a loft apartment (where I've been shooting also Vanessa Angel
and Celeste on different days) with an upper floor.
Thursday, November 27th, 2014 on Ravasi
Thank you Rose!I totally agree with you, a simple location and essential wardrobe can be more than enough when you have such a girl as Sabrisse, she takes the stage without needing much else.
No Evan, my nickname has nothing to do with university.. I'm not even from USA. Btw, if you were banned for that I hope you could at least enjoy it ;)
I am particularly glad to read you liked the idea of the white tulle fer, I wanted her to appear playful and your image of a cat totally fits to what I had in mind. You caught one aspect I also enjoyed, her facial expressions are really pleasant and really tel about her personality.
Thank you for the smart analisys and the rewarding words!
I agree it's not one of her best sets, I actually 2 favorites among our 4 sets and one was the first one released.
HI swplf, thanks for giving some information about Sabrisse before my post, I am being quite late these last sets but I am so very busy with many things.
I am glad to read you liked Sabrisse's smile, it's one of her most valuable assets (she has several actually). I have tried to arrange a second shoot with her in the summer but we finally could not due to our agendas, but we will soon. I have other 2 sets with her to be released.
I know you are always sincere hipshot, so never mind, I accept your critique of course. The set was shot actually 3 months before the theft, and the choice of having only white and Sabrisse's tanned skin was a choice.
Hi Snake, too kind of you! I am thinking about a site... it's kind of a dream but it may come true, who knows ;)
Very quickly on this set, my second with Sabrisse.
It was shot back in april, first shooting with her, in Prague. We had been in touch for a few months, after that Michaela Isizzu told me about her. I liked her quickly, she is very nice to work with, smart, fun and enthusiastic. The shooting was smooth and although I was a bit tired from the previous days of work I really enjoyed it and it didn't require too much effort. This was the last set that day and I wanted to highlight the tanned skin of Sabrisse surrounding her with white. Her irresistable smile and her perfect sexy body did the rest.
Sorry for not spending too long on posting today but I have been very busy with my regular job and with family affairs.
BTW, Happy Thanksgiving to all the American members!
fer, with all the support you have showed so far I could actually call Lucy tomorrow and arrange another shooting soon, so you will be a happy man.. ;)
Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 on Finme
Thank you my friend ;)
Hi KK, it's nice to hear that, I hope you will keep enjoying my work for many more times, also with more Lucy ;)
Hi MAP, you couldn't miss the "DG100MA" party despite your "shyness" ;)
Thank you for the very welcome congrats, hearing that you changed your consideration of a model is a great goal achieved for me, it's really a great compliment for a photographer, who is supposed to take the best out of a model. I am also very glad to hear you liked the extras, it takes time to create them but every time someone shows appreciation it's a reward.
Thanks my friend!
Thank you monkeryma, nice to hear from you again on such a special occasion! I also can't wait to bring more!
already working on the Latvian sets fer ;)
your message while I was out for dinner in Latvia made me glad, and here we are again while I am back home. Yes Lucy was definitely playful/lovely and of course sexy, I really enjoyed shooting with her and think I will do it again. I don't know if I have actually sparked something, I will believe that.. but I think that there were many sparkles ready to light up the discussions and we quickly became such a great and stimulating community, and still growing.
The next 100 sets thread has already officially started with today's #101 on TLE.. ;)
bright day..? actually it was a rainy day with overcast sky... or you meant something else..?
HI JB! thank you for the note on my MET100, I am really happy to read you have also enjoyed it not only for being a milestone but also for the images themselves. I will surely try hard to keep it up!
Hi Checkers, and thanks to you too for the congrats, as I am writing now I am already enjoying the release of my #101 on TLE..
Yes Lucy was in perfect shape, the hair/make up (and I would add the mood) make her look stunning, I've been lucky.
a "naughty little angel".. I like that, Rose!
Hi kilroy, this time it's me being a little late...
your comments are often the icing on the cake, and today it's no exception.. Hearing I am so much considered by you, with so many more experienced, skilled and professional photographers than me is a real prize for what I try to put in my work. I try to listen to everybody, trying to improve day after day (I consider myself still an amateur photographer, meaning someone who "loves" to take photos) and make my work more pleasant to the majority of the viewers, as long as I can keep my own style, always preferring natural light and relaxing settings, believing this brings out the best out of models (and myself as well, since it's my "natural ambiance").
Thank you once more for the nice words of appreciation.
BTW, If you still read this, I would be glad if you got in touch with me through facebook (look for Davi Deltagamma) or twitter (@deltagamma_74) if you use any of these.
Hi bobblehat, nice to hear you enjoyed Lucy seen through my lenses, it's been a pleasure to see her get at ease quickly and show all her magnificent erotic powers..
I can confirm vger_man. Long live RAW! ;)
Hi Dark Storm, welcome again to one of my sets.
Of course it's not a secret. As vger_man correctly guesses I have shot the set with the same settings and all in RAW format (although I also keep the JPEG files which are more practical for other purposes). After the shooting the post-production allows me to check all the settings/parameters and fine tune them without affecting image quality. The effects you see in my extra gallery is therefore also obtained working on the settings/parameters (even the ones you set before the shooting), creating black and white images (desaturating all the color channels).
The same way I can obtain some desaturated images or some partially desaturated images (like #132 you mentioned), simply desaturating all but certain color parameters (red in that case). Then I changed other parameters (light/contrast and several others).
I use Lightroom, although there are many other softwares that allow having these effects, like Buck Maxim says, but normally you don't have 100% control of the parameters which you have with professional softwares instead.
I hope I fulfilled your curiosity!
So Lucy made a great choice to bring them, I asked her to take something good also for outdoors and brought her own sandals
Monday, November 24th, 2014 on Finme
although a bit later than wished... thank you so much fer, it doubles my satisfaction for this set to know that Lucy is in your Heart.. So if you are satisfied only about 90% for this one (which was our very first) you will probably find some more rear views in the next 3 sets, I could not miss that treasure of a bottom.. ;)
P.S. I think I found a great replacement for the mirror....
swplF, thank you so much for this special post, I will save it for my own private records and read it again and again to make sure all this that's happening is not just a daydream.
You are anticipating a few questions that I am already answering in an interview by Adam that will be hopefully soon published on Metart (after I send it in few days, it took much longer than planned to do it due to some "problem"), so you will find out how it all started and a few other things there (or a bit earlier..).
Thank you again for making me see my work from a wider and deeper perspective!
thank you hipshot, it was a geat choice by K for the #100
I guess I shot with the orange background because that's the background I chose, and lighting may have some orangeish cast next to the wall, it's normal
So here I am, back home from Latvia safe and sound and with all my gear and my photos.
As promised some background information about this set, although swplf2 has already helped to have a deeper views.
I shot this set last september, in Hungary next to lake Balaton. I had just came from my few days of real holidays this year, since I had to retrieve from july's damages working harder. I was still borrowing the gear from a friend, who had the same DSLR I used (an EOS 5D Mk II) with the great 70-200mm/2.8 zoom lens and two prime lenses (50mm/1.4 and 85mm/1.8).
I found Lucy by chance in Hungary, spending some months away from home in Russia. We had met 2 years before for a casting in Paris, in the hotel room where I had shot Nicole J, but then we didn't find a suitable date before her departure from France. We didn't speak much and all was very quick, I was not sure whether to try shoot her for Met or not, but when I had the chance to do it in Hungary I didn't waste it. At first when she came to the location she looked a bit indifferent, didn' remember much of the casting and by the way I was still busy with a previous shooting so I let my assistant take care of her. She had some time to rest from the trip and get ready (she was able to do her own make up so I didn't call a local Make up artist for this time). After finishing the shooting with the other model we started to speak about the work throughout the day, I outlined the sequence of the sets in the different settings, so that we could think of the outfits, then finally started.
This was actually the very first set we shot, I chose this bench on the orange wall and gave her the red beads necklace and matching bracelet (the ones I also used for Csilla's first set), and asked her to show me the shoes she had with her, opting for the sandals. I started speaking to her in order to start building confidence, and it worked quickly. The indifference she seemed to show as she arrived was due to the work of the day before and the early awakening, but with some jokes and some pleasant chat everything went smoothly. Directing her was quite easy, I showed her the first pics on the display of the camera and she liked herself, so she started giving her best since the beginning. She is a good poser so I only gave her directions for adjusting or keeping certain poses. Although the day was rainy and the sky overcast with grey clouds I found a location with a big terrace surrounded by glasses, so the light was very soft but not too weak, and worked perfectly.
Spending all day together helped increasing the level of confidence and seeing the pics of each set made her feel that the work was good and worthy. We had lunch with my assistant and the other model that was waiting for her train and it was pleasant. She told me that she had started to workout and was on a healthy diet (she ate a salad) since the start of the summer. She left with a good feel about the work together and we spoke about another collaboration in 2015 somewhen. If also the other 3 sets we shot are well received like this one I guess that I'll call her again soon for some new sets.
It's almost midnight here in Latvia where I've been shooting the last 4 days, today has been a long day of work and only now after eating something and sipping a good local beer while watching my favorite team play the evening match I have finally found the time to take a look at the comments on this set with Lucy. I am really touched by the extremely mice words of appreciation not only for this set in particular but also for the 99 other bricks forming my path in the Metart family.
I will take the time to post my background info and reply comments later tomorrow after flying back home (being very careful about my gear.. Lesson learned), so I invite those concerned to check again later.
All I can say now to all those who took the time to leave a positive feedback and showed support when I needed is

I'm glad to hear that Jake, I will do my best to bring out Celeste's potential, I believe we can carry out a good collaboration. She has also already shot with one of the most experienced Metart photographers like Luca Helios so it's a guarantee she is on the right path.
Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 on Benrad
Grazie Luca! she is coming in few minutes, ready to start.
Friday, November 21st, 2014 on Chete
Hi bobblehat, although this was probably not one of my best sets I am glad you liked Celeste, she is so sweet and fresh and she will do well. Yes I could leave the top on a bit longer, next time ;)
Friday, November 21st, 2014 on Benrad
Thank you Snake, I'm really honored to hear this, both being your favorite photographer (I don't deserve so much...) and for trying to get the girls look at ease and natural, that's not easy sometimes but when they do then it's worth the effort.
I couldn't say it any better swplf2, you really wrote everything worthy to be remarked, so no actual need to post more from me and I can go to bed after a long day shooting 2 new models.
Thank you my friend!
Thursday, November 20th, 2014 on Benrad
mostly tattoes and some unaesthetic skin imperfections, but you can't get rid of everything on every single picture
I will give some info later, I am shooting a model who resembles Caprice right now..
Thank you Matt, so glad you love this set! I'll have to shoot her again ;)
Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 on Soribu
I would almost bet she will have a certain success...
Hi fer, thank you as always for letting me know in detail all the great points you always catch. I couldn't imagine you hadn't noticed the color of her eyes yet, I always take some headshots with close ups in order to let the viewer admire beauties like this one, so that's a honor to find out it helped to make you finally realize that beautiful color.
I must agree that it's really difficult not to take a great picture of Caprice.. I almost didn't need to direct her at all, that's a blessing, especially after several days of hard work.
And about her booty.. we'll see if your catch was right, we only need to compare to a set shot less than one year ago and make an assessment ;) Who is in the jury..?
Hi Neil, it's so rewarding to hear I got to capture the beauty of Caprice, when you have such a creature in front of your lens your main task must be to show her beauty to the world, she deserves it.
Hi bikeman, it's nice to hear that those cotton panties and what came out of them made your day start the right way ;) also very nice to hear you enjoyed my set with Caprice ;)
I agree with 5seadog, hipshot, you said it very well. Caprice really gets better all the time, and that's a blessing for us all. She was born to do this and we are lucky to be witnessing the performance of such a great model, it's real magic.
Thank you for giving some background while I was away and thank you also for such nice words of appreciation for me and my work.
Hi Alpha, this is Delta ;) Actually she had just got that piercing when I shot her that day, I think she had come from a holiday in Brazil or some exotic place and decided to have it for some special reason. But it's true that she really doesn't need to add anything to that perfect body of hers.
thank you Snake, it's a pleasure
Hi uuusssee, yes Caprice is a real jewel, everything about her is precious!
I am happy you enjoyed our work, I'm eager to presenting more sets like this.
You're welcome Coquinet!
and I am glad she has earned your estimation 5seadog
just impossible to get up and go to work...
Thank you for your nice words PG, I am honored to be in such consideration by you and I feel lucky to have had the opportunity of shooting such a great model.
I am glad you enjoyed it Checkers, that's been a lucky day for shooting
Hi DS, glad you enjoyed Caprice in this simple but sexy outfit, a real Capr.. Delice..!
nothing else to add..
Hi Isabelle, I am flattered! but it's so easy with Caprice, she is really the perfect model whatever you dress or undress her. You're right, the white shirt and panties are so sexy on her (what isn't...?), making her take breath away. It was actually not easy to stay cool with such a gorgeous lady in front of me, I tried to concentrate on the photos pretending not to be there.. But I swear, it was so HOT!
And here is finally my first set with Caprice, the only so far, the #51 on Met and the #98 on the network.
As hipshot wrote, this set was shot last year, the same day of my set Indiya with Michaela Isizzu. It was a real event, with Caprice and Michaela on the same day, two exceptionally beautiful girls and two real tops (Michaela was at the start of her bright career at the time, while Caprice was already a star).
I was surprised by the down-to-earth attitude shown by Caprice, I expected a young celebrity and I met a very simple girl, smart and enthusiastic about shooting despite the thousands of photos and videos she has shot before. Then I was impressed (but it wasn’t a surprise) by the perfect posing and control of facial expressions, a very professional model who made the shooting develop smoothly and without any stress.
I wanted to bring the impression I had meeting Caprice into the set, so I chose a comfortable setting, with soft lighting creating a relaxed atmosphere, with her wearing a plain white shirt and panties, as to mean that she is still the girl-next-door despite all the success.
I have very nice memories about that shooting, it had been a long hard day of work but the results were very rewarding and they still are now.
Ok, I am safe and sound in Latvia.
Don't worry Neal, I brought a warm coat with me ;)
5 seadog, I am particularly glad to hear your seeing Caprice in a different way. I can tell you that she is a sweet and smart girl and it's been a pleasure to meet her, even before shooting her.
fer, I am glad that Caprice kept you a pleasant company while I was flying to here.. ;)
A very sexy and funny set with the beautiful Adel by Luca, perfectly shot as usual.
It's funny how I am going to shoot Adel right in a couple of days, it's a great coincidence and a very nice surprise to find her set released today, same time of my set with Caprice. I am looking forward to shooting a few sets as nice as this one, but in natural daylight.
Ciao Luca, thank you for the tip ;)
Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 on Chete
I will post something about this set later, right now I'm on a plane heading northbound to Latvia for some new models to shoot.
I hope you will enjoy "my" Caprice..
Hi yin-yang, I am glad you appreciated the natural setting and Sunshine's happy mood, that's not an ordinary thing. It's also nice to hear you appreciated the lighting, I consider it the main feature of this set.
About the body hair we will see, it could be interesting but it needs to be planned a bit in advance.. ;)
Sunday, November 16th, 2014 on Sanoje
Hi Dark Storm,
despite in terms of score this set seems to be my worst ever, I am particularly glad to read your appreciation of the light features in this set. It wasn't so easy to keep control of the lighting throughout the set, and at first I had in mind a homogenous lighting, but then after starting I shifted towards the idea of having kind of a natural spotlight on her, highlighting different bodyparts.
Thank you for appreciating the work.
Saturday, November 15th, 2014 on Sanoje
I must say that with today's cloudy day the memory of that sunny day with a beautiful Sunshine is quite melancholic.. already looking forward for the spring next year and another nice outdoor location to shoot her..
Hi Baggy, thank you for taking the time to see Sunshine performing in our first outdoor set, and I am really glad to read your words of appreciation of her effort in the poses, we were both inspired by the natural setting and the poses followed. I agree that Sunshine's face in several shots are really awesome, especially in those with a natural spotlight effect on a dark wood backdrop.
Glad to hear you find Sunshine erotic, Gary. Yes some images may have the hair not at the right place, but in outdoor shootings it's not easy to control everything, and with such a long hair it's easy to have it on the way, but I preferred to keep some of that pics in the set the same because they were worth it.
Hi %seadog, I am also glad to read you understand the issues of this kind of shooting, and I can tell you that Sunshine has really been good and professional all the time we were outdoor, despite the bare feet on the ground and the mosquitos, that's why I could never complain about the posing or the facial expressions.
Hi 5seadog, I am honored to have the "senior" old Met-fart.. And I am really glad to have met your expectations in this outdoor set. Shooting outdoor is not always easy and the lighting is a crucial factor for many reasons, including the effect on the model's facial expressions. Also indoor, when I use studio light, I prefer to keep the light power not too strong when aimed at the model's face, using a slowet shutter speed and higher ISO, in order to make her eyes be naturally open.
Thank you fer, yes everything has started going well again and this little milestone has a special meaning. I am glad you enjoyed one of Sunshine's "gifts" ;)
Hi J! always to hear from you.
Thanks for the congrats, and I hope to reach the 100 sets on the network soon, it's 97 so far if you count Met, Sex, TLE and EA.
It's nice to hear that although you normally don't like outdoor sets this one was somehhow liked by you, it's meaningful to me.
Those headshots you mention along with a few others are also among my favorite images in this set, the sweetness of the light and Sunshines' facial expression are combined in an extraordinary way.
I hope that the extra shots will be included soon, I am sure you would like a few of them.
I am really honored of being in such consideration by you!
Thank you so much!
LB, as swplf2 says it would have been helpful to know the reasons why you find this set so awful, otherwise it's just unnecessary rudeness.
mincer, those pics are also among my favorite ones, she looks a dancing nymph (bobblehat copyright), and I would include also the graceful portraits at #26-27
I'm very glad to hear that mincer, I am always a bit concerned when it's about deciding whether to shoot outdoor or not, because most members seem not to like them for a number of reasons, so it's quite rewarding to hear that this one works for you. I have shot another outdoor set that day, it should be one of the next ones with Sunshine being released, I'll be eager to know what you think about it.
I could tell this was a set by Catherine already at first glance: the intimacy and complicity feel between model and photographer, the hairstyle that lets the eye focus on the body, the creativity of the choice of using oil to highlight the shapes and add eroticism to the scene, the coherent simplicity of the setting and finally the high technical level of the photography and lighting.
And of course the beauty of the model, Xena looks gorgeous and I love the headshots and the beautiful art poses thoughout the set.
Great work, Catherine.
Saturday, November 15th, 2014 on Muaji
Great addition swplf2, I am very grateful you are providing so much detailed information about my sets which are very useful for a wider perspective on my work, I could not do it with such a depth, not only for the little time available lately, since I am still working hard every day to finally leave the tragedy effects behind, and in the last days I can say the goal is almost reached.
From the numbers you are showing it's proved that Sunshine is one of the most significant models in my work, and it's true. I know that she's not everyone's cup of tea and it's expectable, since she has several unusual features, but this is also the reasons why I like her, she is a challenge every time. And seeing her get more relaxed and comfortable, with a nice mood day after day when we work together, it's so very rewarding.
Thank you again for perfectly integrating my post my friend.
hi bobblehat, you perfectly understood the difficulties and the reasons why those poses were not so possible, as I just wrote responding to uuusssee this is one of the negative aspects of shooting in certain outdoor settings. But I am glad you liked the set overall and appreciated the setting itself, which is the peculiarity of the self itself. Your description of Sunshine as a naked nymph says it really well.
I am happy to hear you enjoy my work with Sunshine , we have just shot a few more interesting sets (one more outdoor and few more indoor) and I am looking forward to showing them to you all.
maybe she needed to warm up a little ;)
I am not offended uuusssee, I always consider fair critiques as an important part of my creative process, so they are welcome.
I am not actually unhappy about the first part of the set posing, the standing poses were meant to match Sunshine's tall and slender body to the trees, then for the other ones you have to consider that posing with spread legs outdoor is not so easy, therefore it's difficult to find comfortable poses and get variety. This is always one of the main concerns when shooting outdoor, but natural settings make it worth to try anyway.
Hi fer, it's actually the backdrop which made me opt for this setting, so I am glad you noticed.
It's not always easy to shoot outdoor because you can't have the total control of the light and other factors, but a touch of nature is unique and gives a sense of freedom. Also IMO some of the portraits here are really nice, among the best I took of Sunshine. That's a nice summer memory for me as well...
The extra pics in black & white and desaturated colors I normally include in the set are missing this time, due to a delay in uploading the files. I hope that K and her staff can add them during the day so that you can all enjoy a few more images. I suggest to come back to check later.
My set #50 on Met, a symbolic achievement after 2 years and a half from my first released set.
This is also my set #10 with Sunshine, who is now my most photographed model according to the published sets so far. But I’m sure that swplf2 will expand on the stats.
Sunshine is what I think of when I think of another “post-disaster” set, shot this september in Hungary in the last sunny days of the summer, I was still borrowing the gear from a friend so I still felt a bit uncomfortable, but after breaking the ice with the first shots everything was fine. We chose an outdoor location, the first time for me and Sunshine, and reached a wood near lake Balaton. The weather was perfect and Sunshine was happy to shoot in the nature. It was our 3rd shooting together in a year and something, and every time the confidence level was higher. As I have written a few times before Sunshine is not the usual model who smiles very easily, she can only do it when she really feels at ease, and seeing her look more smiling than usual was a rewarding thing because it meant that she was feeling really comfortable. I never saw her so happy and relaxed, during the breaks and at the end of the day, she was also glad to spend a couple of days out of the town and enjoy the nice weather, so her mood was great. Another model, a friend of hers, joined us later that afternoon, and we all went for dinner together in a Hungarian-Italian restaurant, with pizza and a glass of wine for the girls and goulash with beer for me.
This set is significant to me because it had been not easy to plan the trip and the shooting being still traumatized after the theft, I wasn’t even sure of actually arranging it, but then I took the decision and everything turned out to be worth it.
Enjoy the Sunshine.
thank you for giving another perspective to look at it fer ;)
Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 on Ifadel
Benjy, it's all about style and inspiration of the moment. But it's possible that I wasn't so inspired while shooting, as I wrote in my background post: shooting has been harder than usual, and that affects the ability of directing, including the variety of poses, so I can agree there could be more poses, but usually I like to exploit all potential of the single pose, my background is that of a painter studying the model all round.
I am very glad to see another set of my friend Ken, especially with such a gorgeous doll like Zafira. She has always been one of my favorite Hungarian honeys and here she appears as voluptuous and sexy as she can be.
Bravo my friend, looking forward to seeing more of your work.
And next time I'm in Prague it will be a pleasure to have a beer together in one of our favorite bars ;)
Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 on Implere
this seems to be a major worry to you, what would you want Nici to do? you don't find her provocative here? So I must have a different conception for that.
Monday, November 10th, 2014 on Ifadel
You see just the pose, I see the variations each pose could have: perspective, balance, the model's facial expression. Yes that could be a good motto, I'll take it.
Hi kilroy, your comments are always pleasant to me and I am glad you liked this set overall despite the difficulties. In particular it's nice that you appreciated the BW shots and if other photographers are doing the same it means that Metart along with its artists is evolving towards something more creative, and that's good in the abundance of sets and beautiful models. I haven't actually paid attention to other photographers' work on this matter but I guess that all photographers need to experiment somehow, it can't all be a mechanical shoot & standard editing process, photography is also interpreting and "drawing with light".
Thank you again for the rewarding words, they are fuel to my engine.
Sunday, November 9th, 2014 on Ifadel
Hi Digger, I can't but agree on all the beautiful features you mention about Nici, she is perfection concentrated in a petite precious girl, she is a blessing for photographers.
Great to know you liked this one MAP, you know it takes some time to add the extras and although I don't have much time in general it's a pleasure to do something which members appreciate. I am refining the style/process of creating the extra images in order to have a few selected B&W's and a few desaturated images in a peculiar style for each set. It will be useful to have feedback from all members on this.
Thank you for the nice words of appreciation!
Lots of great points in your post F, you always make me see things in a different and interesting way. You also made me think of the relax I was looking for when Nici was here and that day at the beach, it seems it worked to make the shooting smooth and produce a few good sets from that session.
Nici has some strong features which I could appreciate again while working at our other Metart and also the Sexart sets, she has a great potential and I am glad to hear that many members like her as well. Her exotic look and her petite build make her a real gem among the many Metart beauties.
I asked some comment to Nici but these days she was working hard somewhere abroad and since she is not very familiar with English it's an effort that she needs to know in advance. Next time.
I am very happy to read you liked the set despite all, I really tried not to be influenced too much by the july troubles, and it's a good feeling knowing that the team worked well.
I fight the crime by asking her to undress..
Saturday, November 8th, 2014 on Ifadel
Hi Rose, nice to find you here and read your appreciation for such an exotic delight like Nici. Really unusual and peculiar, and I can guarantee she is a girl who likes to have fun and is full of energy. Honored you'll come back to this set and looking forward to showing you the other work with her, both here on Met and also on Sex and TLE soon.
Hi 5seadog, it's good to know that I reminded the sexyness of Nici's poses, I hope you took a look at my previous 2 sets with her, who will become one of my most photographed models along with Lauren Crist, Sunshine, Vanessa Angel, Mia Sollis and Edwige A.
And it's always nice to hear someone like youlikes the black & whites, that's closer also to my approach to art, which began when I was 10 yo and started attending an art academy and learned how to draw and paint. Caravaggio is also one of my favorite artists for the revolutionary use of light and the realism you can see in his paintings, there is plenty of his works here in Rome and it's always a privilege to view them.
Hi JinNJ! I was waiting for your feedback and I am very glad to read you enjoyed this set so much, when I do experiments like this with a large set and a remarkable amount of creative images there is always a risk of missing the goal, and although I still consider this kind of set experimental I am very happy to hear that many viewers like you appreciated its peculiarities.
I will be happy to show more work soon, for now I hope you already took a look at the next set with Nici Dee, there are also similar features.
Saturday, November 8th, 2014 on Semov
Thank you kilroy, it's twice nice to hear from you in these terms. I am always glad to know you appreciate my work.
I can confirm that Vanessa is sweet, beautiful and lovely all round, a real gem
That's a different kind of photography Buck Maxim, black & white is perceived in a different way, they are stronger and more powerful images so it's normal they amplify some features and also the imperfections. If you don't like the idea of seeing imperfections there is always a large "standard" amount of color images I hope you enjoy anyway.
Hi Evan, in effect you as you guessed by the end of your post I'm a guy, and I'm 40 yrs old.
I hope you're not disappointed I'm not the DG you were looking for, but it's a nice opportunity to exchange ideas about photography since you seem to be a very experienced artist too.
I will surely take a look at your work and I will be glad to discuss techniques.
If you are also on Facebook you can look for me as Davi Deltagamma.
"Good light" to you and glad to have found you here.
it must be very hard these days to manage all the sets due to the new servers troubles.
But as I wrote in a similar case it's interesting to see how tastes change, so let's see if the score of this duplicate sticks to the 8.66 of the set when it was posted the first time or if there is a remarkable difference.
Saturday, November 8th, 2014 on Forse
I agree fer, tastes change so quickly nowadays, there is a continuous flow of images and everything goes so fast
Saturday, November 8th, 2014 on Edini
I am glad to know it didn't show too much fer, the effort was worth it :)
no surprise you find this set boring Gustav
Unfortunately these days the troubles with the new servers are creating several problems and difficulties to manage the tons of sets in the archives, so I can testify that K's job lately is even harder than usual.
That's the price to pay for updating systems, it had to be done sooner or later, but as long as everyone shows understanding in noticing flaws like metuser has done things will go smoothly.
I take advantage of this issue to notice how Met members' tastes have changed in the last couple of years:
I checked this set published as Exito in 2012 (following metuser's find) and it had a score of 8.35, but now it has a score of only 7.74.
Is it because many members noticed it was a double (I don't think so) or because tastes of members have actually changed? challenging quest.
Hi fer! I am honored you are still awake so late at night to enjoy this set with wonderful Nici.
You caught all the main features, I couldn't do it any better. Nici is a real jewel, anybody would love shooting with her and nobody could resist to her sultry attitude. This setting and her look (she suggested her own hairstyle) make her appear so very cute and playful. As I just wrote in my background post Nici is one of the models I connect better with, so I am glad it shows in the images.
Thank you for the nice words!
My set #49 on Met, 3rd with Nici Dee so far.
This set was shot last august in Rome, not even 2 weeks after that all my photographic equipment had been stolen.
It was hard to arrange this shooting (which had been already agreed before), while being still traumatized from the robbery, not having any photo camera, lenses and accessories. But luckily a friend lent me almost the same gear I used to shoot with, so I could actually shoot these photos without being too uncomfortable.
When I think at the efforts I did to try not think about the loss while shooting I must say it was really hard, there were moments during the shoot and the breaks I felt uncomfortable, and these thoughts made things more difficult, so that I was dead tired at the end of the day. But thanks to Nici’s professional attitude and my wife’s help, I somehow did it.
Now I can say that shooting soon after such a traumatic event helped me to go through that faster, although I had some moments close to depression in the following days, but that was overcome with the help of my Metart friends. Already in those days I knew that Metart was going to support me concretely by sending me some gear soon, so that was a better feeling than having to buy all by myself. They also supported me with words of consideration and trust, and that was even more important. So I want to thank all of them once again now that I can proudly say I am finally back again.
About this set in particular, it was afternoon and the light was gently sneaking in from the window, so I chose a white setting in order to catch the maximum possible natural light. I included an old fashioned frame I found in a street market which my wife painted white.
Nici was sexy and flirty during the shooting, although she was a bit tired from the long walks in Rome the day before, visiting monuments and shopping, but she did a great job.
As I had the chance to write before, Nici is one of those special models I am always pleased to work with, especially now that I consider her the model of my very first “comeback” shooting.
I included the usual black & whites, sepia and desaturated images as a bonus, for those who appreciate them.
In the case of Catherine it's an instant thing
Friday, November 7th, 2014 on Edini
Yes Jazz, the "human" side and touch is what makes beauty and eroticism so much more intense and "real", you totally caught it.
I'll be glad to hear again from you about my new sets, already on sunday I will have a recent set with Nici Dee, another model I have a special feeling with. Looking forward!
Friday, November 7th, 2014 on Semov
Thank you Rose ;)
I am really flattered ny your words my friend.
I won't comment too much the part about my own work because that would sound a bit "biased".. but you surely highlighted my peculiar features and tried to see them in a very interesting perspective.
As you say the score is not a major worry anymore, because the consideration from you members and the Met family itself is something much more concrete and rewarding, and knowing this really helps me having the right conditions to dive into new inspiration especially after the bad days I went through.
All this I am getting from you is the solid ground from which I can try to jump and fly again, upward.
Thank you my dear friend.
Hi C6C791, first of all I'm glad you enjoyed this set, then I like the way you took a look at the images, comparing the standard color to the b/w and creative ones (Rose was faster than me mentioning the "sepia"..). I agree that the model looking into the camera connects her more to the viewer, and that's the standard for Metart in most sets, it's more unusual to have the model looking away, like in most images which inspire me for b/w and sepia (few times in this set actually). I prefer to convert to the more creative tones the images where the model is not smiling too much, and preferably when she is not looking directly, except for close ups of the model's face, which is often a great image for a b/w portrait when she has an intense look in her eyes.
Hi Baggy and welcome back to commenting one of my sets.
You're reight about the amount of portraits worthy pics, Vanessa really inspired me that day and I couldn't stay too far from her lovely face..
I understand you may not love all the creative images, I expect that several viewers don't care about them and that's why they are added after a standard amount of photos which are supposed to satisfy the standard Metart viewer already. But it's nice to read your clever interpretation of my experiments, you caught the spirit.
It will be my pleasure to bring you more work with Vanessa, my wife just helped me editing a few more of her recent sets (there is one in a classical setting she really loved working on, you will find out) and we are both looking forward to showing Vanessa's fresh beauty and eroticism to all of you soon.
well said Checkers. There was no need to wear any panties ;) But difficult to notice while being hypnotized by those eyes..
Thank you for the nice words for Vanessa and myself fer :)
I totally agree that Vanessa here really starts opening more and more, it's surely due to the increasing intimate relation between us. As I've already said before we have become real friends, we like to talk even off the set, so what you see in her beautiful eyes is all real.
It's also nice to see all this from a "rehab" perspective after that traumatic event which seems to be faraway by now, further every day. It's been really hard to be back here, there has been a lot of work at night and during weekends when I was off from my regular job, giving up summer holiday except for few days in september, to be back with more photosets and to pay back the new gear (thanks to Jon and the Met family). And of course the great, irreplaceable support from fans and friends.
Because of all this everything tastes sweeter.
Hi will, in effect the setting and lighting in this set are probably better than the previous two (which were shot a couple of months before this set, after a break from shootings by Vanessa), but most of all Vanessa really felt at ease here and this makes her beauty show at the fullest (like member The Jazzman also noticed in his post).
The B/W images I recently started adding to my sets are to be considered a bonus for those who like this type of photography, which is different and should have a space on its own (I am working on it), but so far they don't affect the lenght of the set which is usually not shorter than a standard (120 pics) photoset.
Hi Wanderer, your compliments are really welcome! Tony Murano is a master of erotic photography with his Metart galleries but it's great to hear you think this set recalls of his style. Thank you! Shooting such a beauty as Vanessa surely helped ;)
I hope you finally took a look at the previous two sets and liked them
Hi Digger, it's nice to read your positive feedback, Vanessa will be happy to hear how beautiful you think she is, she is a sweet shy girl so she will maybe blush a little.. I will let you know when I hear from her.
I'm also glad to hear you enjoyed the final gallery, there are many photos because when I shoot portraits of her face I can't stop easily...
Hi hipshot, I knew you would be caught by Vanessa's magnetic eyes, I really find her irresistable when she looks at me and undresses so naturally.
The trim is due my request before her arrival to Italy, I wanted to have a few naturally unshaven sets and then a shaving set, before seeing her with her usual shaven look.
I am always happy to hear appreciation for the "creative" gallery at the end, it's a very rewarding challenge so far.
I am glad to hear that fer, it's what I was hoping :)
Hi Jazz, I really appreciate the depth of your analysis, what you mean for "eroticism" is exactly what I try to get from the collaboration with my models, and this confirms the importance of having a good chemistry with the model, especially when they are not professionals who do it every day. This is what I find very important in my work, so it's very rewarding having one more viewer like you who confirms that the effect of this commitment shows on the pictures.
The lenght of the set is proportional to the pleasure of the shooting, which comes along with the overall feeling and relation between the model and the photographer, so I am glad you enjoyed it.
I agree with the your remark about images with the model looking away sometimes, I normally always include a few but this set must have been an unaware exception. I guess I was hypnotized by Vanessa's BBB (beautiful big brown) eyes ;). You will find this type of images in the next sets, and that's what I usually prefer for my black & whites.
Thank you for the nice post, looking forward to showing you more of Vanessa.
I take advantage of the fact of having a set published the same day of Catherine, one of my favorite Metart artists, to drop a few lines on her work.
This set transmits a comfortable and intimate feel, given by the unusual location with the contrast between the cold view from the window and the warm and soft fur carpet where Vanda seems to be at ease. The casual jeans outfit makes Vanda with her soft shapes look like a real and naturally beautiful girl next-door. The very intimate relationship between Vanda and Catherine spreads out from every image, making it appear naturally erotic for the viewing pleasure.
Bravo to this great binomial!
Hi Digger, Vanessa will be happy to know she provokes such lovely effects on you.. I am glad to inform you also about more sets coming (hopefully) on a regular basis with Vanessa, she deserves to be enjoyed regularly. And I must admit that although I see her often and shot many times she still has the same effect on my heart..
Hi monkeryma, welcome back to one of my sets! as I just wrote in my post you can be sure there are more sets with Vanessa and I guess she will come to visit her Metart admirers monthly ;)
My set #48, shot last june in Rome (pre-disaster), my 3rd with Vanessa.
This is a quite large set, with the risk someone finds it boring, but I find the standard photos for the set (about 130 pics) to have enough variety to avoid this risk, then the other 70 pics of creative pics with black and white and desaturated images could be considered like a set on its own. I hope you viewers will be entertained and enjoy this.
The days I had Vanessa here with me and my wife in Rome was a happy time, the summer was about to come with its sweet and warm weather and Vanessa was very happy for this first trip abroad for a shooting. We considered this as a little holiday for her, in which she could relax from her stressful thoughts back in her hometown and enjoy a special time, the shooting came along without worries, very easily and with both her and myself enjoying it.
This set was a long one also because of this, it was pleasant to shoot and the bed helped Vanessa to be relaxed and comfortable on a nice afternoon with soft natural lighting, perfect for her girl-next-door fresh beauty.
Vanessa is definitely one of my favorite models now, we are in continuous touch like friends, and whenever I go to Prague we meet even if we haven’t planned a shooting, although we always try to shoot at least a set since we really enjoy it. She is a very sweet person, I have been knowing her for 2 years now and every time we spend time together is a pleasant moment for both. By now I don’t even have to explain how I mean the set to develop, she reads my mind and I totally like the way she poses and the natural facial expressions she has.
Our collaboration will surely go on for long, as long as she likes, this break from the last set is essentially due to the problems I had after the july theft, when I haven’t been able to work on new sets, but now there are several more sets with this muse waiting to be shown and enjoyed.
fer, what you write here is really worthy to me, I see things from a perspective that explains what I've been through in a very positive way and gives me new energy and inspiration! Thank you!

Hi Dutchman, I wanted the necklace in the set to give a touch of color to the very simple setting and to differentiate the sets shot that day, but I guess that leaving the necklace on for the whole set was due to the fact that I was not fully in control of the set, too stressed and tired because of uncomfortable thoughts, normally I would leave at least the last part of the set, so I agree with your complaint, I noticed that after taking a look at the pics after the set. But I'm glad you liked the b&w at least!
Hi 5seadog, I am glad you like Celeste and appreciated the b&w photos, they are probably the best feature here today
Ahoj CZM! you totally caught the feelings behind the lenses and behind the blue eyes of the sweet Celeste, and you can be sure that the next shootings will show other feelings, with her learning more from Sapphira and myself back to my certainties. Thank you for the honest and interesting analysis. Nashledanou!
Ok got it, so next shooting I will bring my silver brush..
Hi fer, I like the metaphor of the phoenix, and even though this set hasn't been received as well as Celeste deserved (my fault) it is valuable as a new start, so the following chapters should be increasingly better. I started feeling complete as a photographer again when I got the gear that Jon sent, at the start of october, in time for my shooting with Melena, so that will be the benchmark for this second phase of my career.
I am glad that after all you see some valuable images, like the B&W and the desaturated (I guess it's correct, at least that's how I call them) pics.
So I look forward to having my other sets with Celeste to hear what you think about them ;)
Hi F, this time we'll have to wait another set to help Celeste increase her personal rating. I somehow expected it, she is a beginner and I was not at my best but still there are some good images to be appreciated here. She has a long career in front of her and she will do better and better, starting already from the next set.
Hi JiNJ, nice to hear from you. Yes Celeste is just stunning and I made an effort to shoot her again after losing our first sets even though I was not at my best, but the vlue of this set is represented by the will and the committment as you write. I will be glad to show more sets with Celeste with a better feeling on my side, it will be soon.
I appreciate your honesty hipshot, and I agree my mood influenced the overall feel of the set
My set #47, my first with Celeste, long awaited.
This is officially my first “post-disaster” set, since it was shot last august, one month after the theft of all my equipment along with all the sets I had shot during a 3-day shooting.
The July shooting was the very first one for this young model, she is a friend of Sapphira who actually trained her for her first shooting, giving her some precious advices on the poses and on the preparation to the shooting. Set after set Celeste seemed more comfortable and relaxed and we were both very happy about the work, but unfortunately everything was stolen, so there is not even one photo from that shooting.
I arranged this new shooting by the end of august, after that a friend of mine lent me his photographic equipment and another friend (Peter Guzman, also having one of his sets, with Divina, published today) helped me with everything else, so that I could afford the shooting. It was actually hard for me to shoot again after the shock of losing everything, it was more stressful than any other time, it was hard to find the inspiration and every action required a bigger effort than before. But set after set I started feeling back to where I belonged again and felt a bit better.
This set was one of the last ones of that day, I could see improvements in Celeste’s posing although I couldn’t direct her as I would normally do with a beginner because of that uncomfortable feeling I had inside, trying not to think about the disaster but it was not easy, and moreover I easily got tired as the end of the day approached. But we finally completed the shooting and got some nice images.
Celeste is a sweet young girl who is enthusiast about being an erotic model, following on the footsteps of such a friend like Sapphira. She still seems almost a bit shy about being totally nude at the beginning of the set, but after a while it all feels good and she starts enjoying it.
I especially liked the freshness of her body, those nipples and her ice-blue eyes shining bright as she shows that nice natural smile.
She liked looking at the pictures on the camera display right after the set and it made her feel more confident. I showed her some previews after the end of the shooting and she loved them, looking forward to seeing them published on Metart soon, and here she is finally.
I hope you all enjoy her fresh beauty.
I bought those strawberries and cherries because Lauren and I LOVE them ! And guys you can imagine that once the set was finished we, Lauren and I, ate every single strawberry and cherry, they tasted soooo good ;-)

Wow, already so many posts! I'll have to cut it short then.
My set #45 on Met, the 9th with Lauren (my most shot/published model along with Sunshine) and the 4th outdoor.
This set was shot last year: I haven't shot Lauren this year yet, for several reasons, but I'm counting on doing it again soon. It was late spring and we went to a very nice natural area where I often go shooting because it offers many options for sets and it's a pleasant place to spend the day. My wife had bought some fruits and brought a towel for a picnic during breaks from shooting, we had shot a couple of sets already and were going for a break, when Lauren suggested that it would have been nice to shoot a set on the towel playing/eating fruits, so we did it.
The day had been a very pleasant one, the nature had a relaxing influence on us and the mood was therefore right.
At the end of the summer we arranged our last shooting so far, we met recently and agreed to plan a new shooting by the end of the year.
Hi J, my friend,
I am really happy about the appreciation of my B&W, I am quite new to it so I have tried to "feel" the image and express it in the best effective way, and hearing you and many others like it it's something so very rewarding. Thank you.
And you couldn't make a better compliment about catching the model's essence.. that's what artists look and live for, then being considered your favorite MA/SA artist really touches me..
The dialog with the community is something that comes along with the real pleasure of sharing my work with the viewers: every time one of my sets is published is a special day for me, I still feel like an amateur so I feel privileged and I want to share not just the images but everything else behind them, because that's what I would like an artist to do with me as a viewer myself. It takes time and effort, I have a regular job that takes 5 of my 7 days in a week, and I have to concentrate my photography work in the nights and in the weekends, so I basically never stop working, but I consider these dialogues so important that I think it's always time well spent, I owe explanations to the viewers, it's about genuine enthusiasm amd also about respect.
Thank you for the high rating and most of all for the great consideration!

Gary, since I wanted Sunshine to be as natural as possible your appreciation is particularly worthy to me
I am glad to have provided some type of shots you enjoyed l_l_C :)
Hi DS, I'm glad you think so and I am honored to hear you particulary enjoyed this set with Sunshine. She is a complex model to read, so I am not surprised she is not the perfect model for anyone, but whenever someone catches her rare attitude I am very happy for her. In my last sets with her, where she was more really relaxed, I could catch some big radiant smiles and I am looking forward to showing them to you all soon.
Thank you rach! I am glad to please you often lately ;)
thank you for the trust kilroy :)
Hi JB, thank you for letting me know how you liked this set, I also look forward to showing you and the others a happy and relaxed Sunshine. I'm lucky to have an understanding wife like mine, she helps me and she is really important to create a pleasant atmosphere with the models, she is not much older than them so it's easy for her.
Thank you also for making me consider to concentrate on photography full time, that would really be a totally different situation and I could really have the time photography deserves, until then I will have to work hard and not sleep much, taking every supporting word from the viewers like you as a golden nugget ;)
I'm glad you like Sunshines' physical features 5seadog, it will be my goal to create the conditions for her to smile more
it's nice to hear this from you Rose, that's what our goal was and it's great that we reached it according to your words :)
Sunday, October 19th, 2014 on Jensso
Hi hipshot, the factors that made you like this set are something very rewarding for a photographer. I was lucky to choose the righ place at the right time of the day, sheltered from direct sunlight so that Mia's delicate skin tone was preserved. It's very pleasant to hear that already 3 years ago we did a good job, we will try to equal it with the newer shootings if we can.
Perfect description Rose, it really gives the idea of the mood and the feel of the set, thank you!
For now you can use this link:
Hi Snake, good question ;) I also felt the need of some outdoor sets with Sunshine and that's why I took the chance of some great weather last month and went to Hungary to shoot her outdoor in the nature. I am still waiting to know if K likes the sets, but I can already tell you that there are 3 brand new outdoor sets with her waiting to be shown ;)
you keep surprising me with your deep analysis of my work and with your skills of reading the intimate relations between me and the model from the simple look of the images of a set. I can only confirm what you write, with Sunshine has been an increasing process and this set which was shot the last day of our second shooting can be considered as the one where her attitude of opening up has reached the maximum. It will be interesting to notice the further growth of this relation in our latest sets shot last month, where I found her even closer and more willing to open up and smile, in her own country.
I think that portraits are the best way to try understand and feel her personality, she is an introverted and thoughtful girl basically, so if you look carefully through her eyes you will see a whole world.
I am glad that we “pushed all of your buttons”.. Thank you for the nice words and the time you took to let me know what you think, I appreciate this more and more.
Wow F, your posts and stats about the models should be used to sistematically integrate the models’ bios, they really give a unique insight and let the viewer see the sets under the best and more complete perspective. I remember one of the “old farts” club suggesting the “Hall of Fame” thing, and recently after chatting with Melena during our last shooting together I’ve had some idea about this. We’ll have to discuss about during one of our conversations with you and the other fellows ;) Let’s remember that.
About Sunshine, even I - who know her and her career quite well - really enjoyed reading your post with her story through the network and the other websites, it adds something very valuable to the set and makes you see the model under the best light.
Well done my friend.
By the way, I just found out that the Metart blog is still alive, although I can't find how to access from the main menu.
I invite you to read the latest article by Adam about my set with Sapphira published last week:
This set on the Metart blog, a great article by Adam:

A set shot earlier this year, second shooting (out of three) with Sunshine, in Italy.
These images where she is relaxed and comfortable remind me of the overall atmosphere of those days, enjoying a sweet ending of the winter which let us anticipate the coming of spring.
As most of you know by now Sunshine doesn’t let her smile shine very easily, but when she does she can light up your day.
For this set I used a very simple setting obtained in my previous apartment, natural light through a big window, a small table where to sit and then a white shirt and white thong. The shirt is mine, I actually wear it to go to my regular job, it’s a slim fit and looked nice on such a slender body.
I wanted no make up on her to match the simple setting/outfit, ruled by the white and the natural light.
These days I started to really get to know Sunshine and her complex, not common personality. She reminds me of a beautiful and unpredictable cat that does only what she feels like when she likes and with whom she likes.
She is also one of the models I really love to work with, and that’s why I wanted to shoot her again recently one month ago during my “new start” after the disaster. This latest shooting has shown an even more comfortable, relaxed and happy girl and it’s been a real pleasure to see her again.
I hope you enjoy this set and look forward to showing you the latest work as well.
He's sleeping on the chair next to the desk right now so I'll caress him for you ;)

Hi Matt, never mind, the important is that you finally took the time to take a look at the set and that you enjoyed it.
I am very happy to read you truly appreciate my work, including the experimentations I am doing lately. Your words really give me new energies for new inspiration, I look forward to bringing more work for you and anyone else to enjoy!
Hi kk, I am very happy to read you liked Sapphira under every possible point of view and the set overall, thank you
Saturday, October 18th, 2014 on Bidra
Thank you all for the very nice comments and sorry for not replying to all, but today has been a very busy days with work on the new sets and with a family reunion, but I promise I will take some time to write tomorrow while writing on Sunshine's set coming out in few hours.
All the nice words I read are pure energy for new inspiration and the fair critics are the steps to keep going up improving the level of my work.
Thank you all.
Saturday, October 18th, 2014 on Jensso
Hi bobblehat, always nice to read your appreciating words especially when they're about one of my favorite models and locations. Mia's attitude to open poses that day was great, and I remember she had fun dipping her toe in the water, I didn't catch all of her smiles but she did enjoy it. I'm looking forward to showing more of our work together.
swplf2, thank you for the usual great integration of my background info, I can confirm that I've shot a few new sets with her and I am going to submit them soon, there is also one left for SA in my archive.. probably her last available one. Let's see if one day the tattoo will uncover... I'm ready ;)
this was meant to be the reply to _fer_realz's P.S. at the start of the thread...
Thank you for supporting me this way fer, in effect I was surprised to see the rating fall down so significantly a few days after my last set with Sapphira was published, I guess it has been some technical thing. As you write the score affects the standing and therefore the frequency of the published work, but luckily K doesn't look strictly to numbers and rather listens to the viewers' wishes and words of appreciation, so as long as there are members like you and the several others who want to see my work it will be great.
And thank you also for letting the others know about my FB page, it's nice to be in touch with members even when I don't have any set published, it's always a good opportunity to exchange ideas and keep the inspiration high.
Hi fer, you and swplf2 have been much faster than me posting a comment on this set today.. It's very pleasant to read how you enjoyed the feel of this set, and "timeless" is the perfect word to synthetize both Mia and the setting. I have to say that I was almost suprised by the way that Mia posed without any shyness in the nature, she was so much more open compared to our first shootings where she was not yet totally comfortable with nudes, so these days with Mia showing everything about her intimate sensuality was a nice surprise and it's a very pleasant feeling to see her under this point of view today.
Thank you for appreciating our work!
Another set from my second Metart shooting with Mia 3 yrs ago, the fourth shooting considering also the first art nude work as she started her career and the first in Italy, in my favorite location as swplf2 also remarked (I have just been there shooting Melena last weekend).
I have really good memories of that day with Mia, a sweet september and one of my favorite models to shoot. That afternoon we walked around the location which is really big, offering lots of interesting places with a special atmosphere that brought us back to the ancient Roman times, as you can see from the last pics with the aqueduct in the background.
Mia was amazed by the view of the location, which has several unique places to visit, such as waterfalls, ponds, caves, fountains, an old church, sculptures, temples and this aqueduct. It felt more like a tour rather than a working day, so she was really relaxed and happy to be there.
This set is actually the follow up to my other set with Mia “Berasa”, shot in the cave near the fountain, so it could be interesting to take a look back to that set too along with this one.
The other sets which have been shot in this location and published are Hawqab and Espaziora with Lauren Crist, Maranthe with Edwige A and Sonen with Edwige A and Luka B.
As you may have read in some of my recent posts I have shot Mia again by the end of august and I am looking forward to presenting the new work, since it’s a “post-disaster” one which is particularly meaningful to me. Mia got in touch some days ago and she may come to Italy again soon, in that case we are probably going to shoot again and enjoy visiting Rome together, like in the old times.
Hi fer, if you are a ballet set fan you will love what I have shot yesterday with Melena... ;)
Monday, October 13th, 2014 on Bidra
it's always pleasant to find new comments after several days from the moment a set is published, and your post has more than one reason to make me really value it.
First of all I am very glad to hear one more viewer supporting my choice of including b&w photos in my latest sets, it's a different kind of photography and it's great that you can see its added value.
Your wish for Sapphira in a ballet studio is really inspiring, I have once shot a real ballerina and I was fascinated by the special taste of the images, I love Edgar Degas' works on this theme and I would like to try it applied to erotic photography, but I can tell you that I have shot also a few art nude and erotic models in a ballerina outfit, the last time few days ago but for a standard Metart set. The b&w photography would really work to highlight the harmony and balance of some poses. I may try to carve out some of these images when I work on this set.
Thank you for the words about the theft, what you say is really true, the material is something that can be easily replaced, but the unique work is lost forever and that's what hurts. If you are a writer I believe you really know how it feels.. So now I have to see this loss as something that could enrich my future work, making me value more the inspiration of the moment.
Great quote, I love it.
I will be pleased to hear from you in my next published sets, I am sure you have interesting to say.
Best regards to you!
P.S. Yes she has a bunny and she takes it for walks..
Hi 6.5.. one more nice appreciation 3 days after this set was published, feels good. I am very glad that Sapphira and I did a good job together con contributing to keep the high standards of Metart as expected.
Friday, October 10th, 2014 on Bidra
J, It's like receiving a gift every time I read such nice words, the satisfaction I feel right after the shoot when I know I did a good job lives again whenever someone appreciates, so it feels almost like being back on the set with Sapphira. Thank you for the special feeling.
Thursday, October 9th, 2014 on Bidra
You're in the team JinNJ.. let's meet in Prague then ;)
I have mostly overcome the loss by now, but until I hadn't my gear replaced at least I felt not complete, so now that I have almost everything again I feel much better.
Yes I'm a "Canonian".. what else? ;)
Hi Bored1, it's great to hear such satisfaction in your words, it means that I made the distance between Sapphira and the viewer almost invisible, and that's a great result.
I actually had no dobut about it..
Hi Isabelle! it's nice to have you commenting my work on a regular basis!
And I am very glad to hear also from you that Sapphira's natural beauty really shows in my photos, it means that I did what I was aiming at, she doesn't need anything else but a good light and some good lenses ;) It's very easy working with her, I guess I will never be tired to do it again and again...
I am honored to get such a high consideration from you for this set, it's really nice to read you appreciated most features also from the point of view of style and photographic technique.
I also look forward to present more of my work and hear your feedback soon!
Double post, I'm not sure whether it's clear or not..
I'm not sure whether you liked this set or not... But I guess you haven't totally disliked it maybe..? ;)
Although it was not clear whether you liked her set or not... I guess you didn't totally dislike it after all.... ;)
I am glad you noticed kilroy, it takes time and work but it's definitely worth it
Sometimes I also don't know how I can do it, since I am not even into drugs... (ok, erotic photography is my drug..). I have to thank my wife Phi who has a very important role and although she also has a regular job we both work hard at night and during weekends to keep up the photography work, and as long as we hear such positive feedbacks we will keep doing it with pleasure.
Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 on Bidra
never mind kilroy, the important is that I hear your opinion sooner or lair ;)
the score has actually decreased a bit but still it's very good, thanks to Sapphira but maybe also because the photography isn't too bad after all, as you also say ;) Thank you!
I am so very glad to hear she looks even better than usual in my photos, I feel honored!
Yes, it's definitely been a very good week, I was really missing this feeling and I like it.
I am not sleeping much lately because I am very busy with many things but it's great to see my efforts worth it.
I've just finished uploading a new set with Sunshine right now, K had run out of them because of the interruption in my workflow. Now getting ready for Melena from tomorrow. I can't wait !
You really know me well fer..
Tuesday, October 7th, 2014 on Bidra
I guess Snake is particularly (case) sensitive to Sapphira's astonishing beauty... ;)
Hi Ken, my friend!
it's nice to find you here at last.
thank you so much for the very welome appreciation, I am sure you will do a great job in few days when I guess you will also be shooting Sapphira.. Remember the tips I gave you ;)
As you may have read some members liked the outfit she used in this set, you could consider to shoot her with that on again since the setting will be different, but she has a good choice of clothes and good taste anyway.
I look forward to seeing your next sets soon, it's been too long without your work, I am curious to see your recent sets with Lia Taylor you told me about.
See you next time in Prague!
I see the dress has been appreciated.. no wonder it's one of her favorite outfits..
I am very glad you also enjoyed the B/W, Sapphira also really loved them when I showed them to her, she has saved them for herself.
I hope she didn't hurt you... ;)
note taken for the next time ;)
Hey Rachsbach! wow, I had always wished Sapphira would have maken her debut with me.. so now I will take what you say as the truth! ;)
We could actually go on a bit longer with the teasing but Sapphira felt hot.. so she coulnd't wait being totally nude.. should I've ever stopped her?!? ;)
I can understand you may not like the N/W and half tones pics, but I feel the need of presenting some particular poses/facial expressions in a different way, but I wouldn't consider as they were from the past, although there are trends in photography throughout decades I consider B/W and monochrome images as universal and evergreen. I am slowly getting hipshot131 to "not dislike" these images.. so maybe if you try to see them in a different perspective.. who knows..?? ;)
I am really proud of what is happening lately, sometimes life's hard but when you hit the ground and then rise again you can really feel great, and that's what is happening to me right now, thanks to many things and many people, and the Met community is well among those people. I really appreciate your "chapeau"..
I am glad to hear that bobblehat, I am really looking forward to show more of our collaboration with this extraordinarily beautiful girl.
Hi 5seadog, it's a pleasure to find you here on a regular basis.
In effect it's a real pity that something left a scar on Sapphira's otherwise perfect skin, but the fact that despite this she is among the top Met models shows that beauty is not just a purely physical thing, but something coming from a few other factors, and Sapphira has the all in quantity.
For the set I had in mind some simpler outfit, but Sapphira felt comfortable with that top which she had brought on the purpose, and it was ok for me to add some moderate contrast between the dark gray and the white of the sheets. I have noticed Sapphira's sets on SA already, sure, I have also shot a few that I will be pleased to have published soon and hear what you think about.
I hope you had the time to take a better look and liked the set ;)
I really like hearing that Sapphira looks presented in a different way, I tried to give my interpretation of her beauty and it seems it worked, each photographer has his own view and images come out differently, that's one of the unique features that Metart has. And the looks in her eyes, depending on who is looking at her, her mood, and the setting, the lighting, everything is a piece of the puzzle which comes out, different every time.
I'll take note of the breasts close ups, I actually take close-ups of body parts besides the model's face in most of my sets, but evidently not this time, but you can be sure that you will find them in the future.
I hope you had a nice day at work and you can finally relax and enjoy the beauty of our models.
I would suggest to consider also the magnetic power of her eyes... ;)
Met models could really help solve the world's problems...
