LA-la land! That’s where Tolstoy recently went to have some fun and work with the ever-amazing Candle Boxxx!! More on that in a sec, let’s start with a pic:
My “custom guy” was very interested in getting some work done with Candle…and with us living on opposite sides of the US, that’s kinda difficult. Recently, an opportunity popped up with her traveling to Los Angeles, so we decided a meeting there was in the cards. “Hotel shooting”…bleh. Ask any photog, hotel shooting can be a bit of a drag…hard to control lighting and such, but we made it work and to our benefit. 🙂 ‘Twas an awesome time! Let me start at the start…
LAX (the airport there) is freaking HUGE!!! Man, here in Tucson, you take maybe twenty steps and you’re at baggage claim…out there, take a car and maybe you’ll get there next week…lol. Seeing her again was awesome…soon as I hit the baggage claim and saw her…ah, very cool! We got my bags and headed out to the hotel…which was a surprise in itself. VERY roomy…we both remarked that it seemed like it was made for our kind of filming. Let the “smut filming” (as she likes to call it at times) begin!
Straightaway, hotel shooting kicked me in the ass. This was the first scene…Candle was walking around with a few ties on, as if she’d gotten away from me while I was tying her up…can you see ol’ Tolstoy photographing the scene, reflected in the TV screen??? LMAO…laughed my ass off when I saw that…fortunately, it’s a quick edit to say the least to fix it. 🙂 Oh, forgot a funny story about the lighting…Candle had warned me that the room was somewhat dim and we might need some lighting. I wear “Transitions” lenses, the type of perscription lenses that change from light to dark outside…well, when I entered the room at first, they were darkened…and I immediately thought the room was beyond too dark to work in…while my lenses were still darkened from being outside! Ah, me…lol.
We moved to a chair tie…then to a tie on the floor:
Then to a hogtie, and back to a chairtie where the vibrator-tied-crotchrope had a bit of an effect on the lovely lady…quite fun! All for the camera and not for real…but quite fun! 🙂 The best part of this little vacation wasn’t just the shoot, but the hanging out with her as well…we spent some time just enjoying what LA had to offer…some eats, Hollywood blvd (no, we saw no stars, but did run into a fellow producer)…Candle found a kick-ass pair of black, stiletto pumps that looked awesome on her (she tried them on at the hotel room later while wearing a wifebeater and tight jeans…I was tempted to break out the rope again…lmao!).
Part of this shoot was pure vacation for both of us…and if you think the life of a producer and model is all fame and fortune…let me clue ya in a little bit. After the shoot was in the camera, we spent the rest of the time keeping up on e-mails from our laptops, and chatting while we did so…no lie! Life had become stressful for both of us, so the opportunity to just RELAX and BREATHE was amazing. We were even texting each other while still in the same room, just for laughs…lol.
Headed out the next day to go over the footage. I’ve burned it all to DVD, and it looks amazing…she was spectacular. 🙂 It was a pleasure and an honor to work with her again…our third shoot; hopefully, there’ll be many, many more!
