I am just starting to venture into shooting latex and rubber. Just want to ask if there are any specific steps to prepare the outfit or dress the model.

(1) I have already gotten the "dresser assistance" lube
(2) I have already gotten the shiner liquid ...

So is there any specific steps to take to prepare the latex outfit, dress the model, shine the outfir and lastly clean up the model and the studio after the shoot ...

I am mostly shooting along; so after "helping" with the dressing; any special cleanups before handling the camera or lighting equipment?

Any kind advise or a pointer to a advise website is much appreciated.

You might find that your model doesn't need "help" with dressing and so you might have a disappointment.

Do have talcum powder available (in UK Johnsons Baby Powder is a favourite) for the model to use before and after.

Latex can be a bit stinky so be sure washing facility is there.

Give a thought to light management - latex is very refective - see my headline picture, a black latex dress.

Hi kittiy ...

any pointers on the trick to get it on the "right" way?

i understand you are suppose to lube the mocel before trying to get the latex on; especially if they are suppose to the be skin tight kind.

my question i guess is what is the appropriate amount of lube to use and does it go on (steps-wise) like a normal dress / garment?

hi rupert ...

not exactly "looking forward" to helping the model dress ... ;-) hence my question about cleaning up afterwards before handling the camera.

how does it work with the powder and the lube for dressing up ... which works better (for you ... at least)

I know about the difficulties in the lighting issues ... I have worked on some PVC stuff before, but I guess this would be a lot more reflective than PVC.

Beansprout.....there is no need for you to "help" the model dress, i'm sure they will be quite capable of it themselves.

You should concentrate on the shooting side of things, and let the model worry about putting her latex on.

Just because I have a short span of attention doesnt mean

I've always found talc to be a bit rubbish really. Lube/dressing aid stuff is far better especially for things like stockings and long gloves.

I have done a number of shoots with http://SammieB.net-model.com who is quite experienced with latex. She has never required help with dressing and does not seem to use any lubes or powders.

As it happens I have a PVC dress shoot looming and I have been assuming it is much easier to work with than latex.

Can I just ask the models is it easier to put on and does it need any kind of polish for a good finish?

Any other tips PHOTOGRAPHERS?

PVC is as easy to put on as regular fabric, it doesn't need any polish or lube or anything like that.

To the OP, my tips on shooting with latex:

Make sure it's the right size, too small and you risk ripping it, too large and it'll sag where it should be tight.

Lots of lube! I don't like talc, I find it leaves white smears. Latex rips so easily. Best if the model eases it on very gently, so don't expect outfit changes to be quick! Best to avoid long nails unless the model is experienced with putting on latex. Cheap latex (such as some you can get on ebay) is more likely to rip

Lots of shine! It has to be shiny. I use Eros Shining Spray, which is a bit pricey but gives the most amazing glassy shine.

Be careful with shooting around anything that might snag the latex, like in the great outdoors. Also, if sitting, lying on paper backgrounds or furniture, sometimes it leaves greasy marks from the shiner. But they usually come off.

I'm sure if you put out a casting asking for models with their own latex wardrobe you would get quite a few responses.

To get the latex on, you can use talc (applied to the inside of the garment and also to the model). It will get everywhere.

Use silicone lube to shine the latex. That can also be used instead of talc to aid getting the garment on.

If you get silicone lube on things, it doesn't really come out so do be careful.

I would suggest you work with a model who has got experience working with latex so as you can learn from them!

RE: Shooting Latex Outfits Feb 7, 2011 5:25pm

I personally prefer to use talc, rather than lube, as I have sensitive skin, and the lube can cause rashes.
I have worked with a photographer who used a car polishing glove with shiner to touch up any bits where the talc has 'escaped' this seems to work very well as it stops you from using too much shiner.

I would definately suggest using an experienced latex model. Those who have not worn latex before can easily rip it, depending on the quality of the latex, long finger nails can easily make holes.

Don't using the shining spray in an enclosed space with the lens cap off your camera would be my top tip! Unless you want a soft focus effect of course.
