Pantyhoses for Photo Shooting

Ideas for Using Nylons as an Accessory

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (9 votes)


In this exciting FotoTV film, amateur photographer Michael Zelbel has come to demonstrate a great passion of his, shooting erotic style photos with nylon pantyhose. Zelbel has brought along his beautiful wife Emily to model throughout the shooting and she does an excellent job under his direction.

Zelbel was inspired initially to photograph pantyhose after he saw a photograph of award winning actress Cate Blanchett, photographed by the legendary Patrick Demarchelier. Naturally, Zelbel puts his own signature style to his photos today to create some very erotic and aesthetically beautiful shots.

Zelbel gives valuable tips about what equipment to use and even gives a comprehensive step-by-step set up guide for his shooting. Using only two strip lights as his main lights, Zelbel adds a third spotlight as an accent light to create a vignette affect in the background to draw viewers to his main subject. He keeps his model in relation to his light set-up at a relatively shallow distance to bring out the contours, details and sparkle of the pantyhose. He reviews all his shots with the viewers, giving new ideas along the way, and the photo results are absolutely beautiful.

With just a few pieces of equipment and a simple pair of pantyhose Zelbel has created photographs that could easily be part of a lingerie campaign. Zelbel enjoys photographing artistic nudes and with his work wishes to bridge a gap between western and Asian cultures.



Good idea for a single shooting. If you have phantasy you can improve this style

Nice idea, I will definitely

Nice idea, I will definitely try this out... :)

Accessoire! Pantyhose

Good use of strip lights They provide a nice even lighting! Pantyhose as accessory! Not bad! I like the mix with other objects, like the sunglasses for example.

thank you Michael (& Emily), well done...

Simple creative idea, with the potential to produce some great photos. Think I might try similar with different light setup... peace.
