...You need several things:

- a proper location, with mood and character all its own, especially when shooting outdoors, like in quicksand/mud;  in some situations, the location takes on a life of its own and is critical to a successful image;

- a story, which tells us a bit about the damsel and how she got into her current predicament; sometimes, this can be very difficult, because the situation would not be "natural" (e.g. a stuck/glue scene is particularly hard, for instance);

- attire, lighting, and other "mood-setting" aspects; the attire must compliment the actress/model, but not detract from the story; lighting can ruin an image if not done properly (I have thousands of ruined images because of poor lighting);

- most important is the model/actress: she must be able to get "into character" and express a wide range of emotions, ones we don't use on a regular basis (fear, worry, horror, terror, etc.).  Without a talented model/actress, none of the above considerations are important.   I am lucky to have met a large number of such women - and even luckier that they enjoy doing "darker" themes.

I like your notion of focusing on the emotion of horror! That is so overlooked & so much a part of what happens IMO! In photography, it is essential because you can tell the whole story in just a few expressions! For videos tho, I think the most overlooked aspect is dialog! So many amateur film makers neglect this & think it is not important, but it is! For example; a vore video where the victim states; "OMG, it's trying to eat me! Please don't eat me! Help! I'm being eaten by a monster!" May seem obvious, but it is acknowledging that the victim realizes what is happening to her, thus adding even more to the terror of the situation! It is refreshing to see someone who... "Gets IT!"

Your feedback and thoughts are much appreciated.  As noted, I am to capture a wide range of emotion, with this portfolio focused on the darker, horror-tinged feelings.  Video, unlike photography, can be trickier - with photography, I am not doing it at all for money, just a creative outlet for me.  With video, there is some creativity (e.g. using more dramatic lighting in my recent work as one example; different camera angles as another), but also consideration of the buying audience: their likes, interests, etc.  Dialog, as you note, is certainly important for most themes - but there are and have been exceptions.  Never a dull moment in this endeavor/creative realm.  Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

Oh I know! Just thought you might like some back up on how difficult what you do is & how important some other aspects, besides T&A, are!

If you like my spider web themes, check out the behind-the-scenes shot of Cali Logon caught in a web - shot during a break for a video this past week.  Can be seen on my twitter account:  twitter.com/didvp

For those who follow me on various forums, you have probably seen that I have released few new videos or photos for April - that will change this month. And I'll be starting a new blog, so folks can get in touch with me, especially since sticky-site and now disturbedthings bb's are gone.
