A few months ago a good friend of mine posted a piece on Fetlife called A Cunning Plan. The long and the short of that piece was that
I want to do photo shoots with normal shaped people. This is not about polar opposites – fat or thin, but about inclusion of body types, including thin young, bendy women. Acceptance of rather than shaming. I want to do shoots with people of all colours and within the full range of the gender spectrum. I also want to shoot older people too, not just people in their late teens or 20s. I want to break out of this mould. Hell I want to smash the mould and set it on its arse! ~ DJfet
The next thing I knew my friend @HopeAlways2 was asking me if she volunteered for this project would I be the photographer? The answer was obviously yes. It ticks all my boxes. The idea of the project is to show that rope and photography are not just for under 25 bendy slim people. It was about smashing those stereotypes whilst giving people an opportunity to experience something new and hopefully create beautiful images in the process.
Today, after much planning, @HopeAlways2 and DJfet arrived at my house and we spent most of the day doing exactly that, with plenty of tea, and giggles thrown in. I hope that at some point @HopeAlways2 will write about her experiences today (yes that is an invitation to guest post here if you do) because watching her explore and discover something new was an amazing thing to witness.
In total I took 345 images. Damn I have some serious editing work to do now but this one just jumped out at me and so I gave it a little tinker in Lightroom and sent it to @HopeAlways2 for her approval. Doesn’t she looks absolutely fucking stunning with DJfet’s hand wrapped round her throat?
