Higher Definition

A commenter wrote in to suggest video formats (I do believe under the Year in Review 2014 post). It led to a very interesting discussion about the various formats that there are, the pros and cons of various settings, and so on. Rather than get too deep into the woods on that, suffice it to say, there is high definition, and then there is even higher definition. For my videos, I usually put them out in .wmv format at the very highest definition settings I can. But apparently there was a way to push things even higher.

Based on that conversation, I tried a ridiculously high definition format to see how it would come out. As it turns out, for the indoor shoots, it really did not look all that much different. But the file size ended up absolutely huge. But it does make a difference noticeably for the outdoor shoots when there is a complicated background and a lot of movement. In fact, I had noted that before which is why for my more recent outdoor videos, I put them out in a higher output .MP4 format. It make the quick movement quicker. Now, perhaps the quick movement parts aren’t what most are interested in seeing clearly, but I still prefer things to look as smooth as possible.

So while there is not much reason to use the higher definition for indoor shoots (where you would not likely even notice a difference), for the outdoors, with complicated backgrounds and bright sunlight, for the fast movement, you can. And so, by special request, for the commenter who brought this to my attention and also gave me some technical tips for tweaking the settings, I redid in much higher definition the video “Hiker Robbed of Her Clothes and Handcuffed” and will now release it. I like how it looks (but then I always have). This is one of my favorite videos – it came out beautifully, the outdoor shots are gorgeous (as is Rocker Doll of course), and the video is long and has lots of interesting shots and angles. So without further ado…

Here are some still frames – not that you can really see a difference in a still, but I wanted to make more anyway to add to this post…

Meredith Locked Outside Naked

Here is another scenario I long wanted to do, and so quite enjoyed finally getting to do it. One has to love friends who would trick you to the door, then push you out naked and lock the door and laugh at you while you run around the house, trying to get back in. I would love to explore this further, but of course, a suitable location is required. A regular neighborhood would be fun…

This also, I think, may be the last video with Rocker Doll in it that I have in the queue, and it is a very long queue. I mention it because she may very well the one model in more videos than any other, currently. And she was one of the very first models I shot with, so I just wanted to take the time to mention this. I may have to do a Model Showcase for her soon. Which reminds me. As always, I welcome feedback of any kind. One thing I am curious about is which models are people’s favorites and why they are. So feel free to comment on that, or anything else.

In the meanwhile, here are some images from the video (which can be direct linked through here🙂

Skinny Dippers’ Clothes Stolen

The notion of skinny dippers taking off their clothes and jumping into outdoor waters to frolic whilst someone sneaks up and steals their abandoned clothes is an old one – it is really a cliche. But there’s nothing wrong with a good cliche if it is done right. The problem is that it is often played for laughs or with only implied nudity, and so that’s where I come in – making it real and showing it all.

One thing that isn’t apparent here is where the water is, because they don’t quite get there before the discovery is made. Doing this with the full water in view is another goal of mine, but it will require a better location. Still, this one is pretty good. It is a lovely day, sunny, if a bit chilly to be running around naked outside. Especially when one loses one’s clothes!

In any case, in the bright sun, there are some great visuals, only a handful of which you can see here in the samples. Enjoy!

Two Hikers Robbed of Their Clothes and Handcuffed

There’s definitely something lovely about the great outdoors. And that isn’t even including any naked, lovely women who have their clothes stolen and their hands cuffed behind their backs.

Given how lovely all of those things are in combination, I ought to try do do more of these (and this obviously isn’t the first.) Apparently the woods just aren’t safe for lovely women hikers when it comes to them keeping their clothes.

I don’t have too much more to say except that this is a good one. Without further ado, here are some images (for the video which is direct linked here):

Hitchhiker’s Revenge – Robbers Stripped and Stranded Naked on the Road

As I have often said, tales of revenge where you see the full reason for the need for revenge (in the previous video) are quite interesting, not the least of which because there can be real motivation there.

In this case, not only is there revenge, but it is a double revenge, as now both of the robbers from the first video end up stripped naked by the side of the road and then left to walk naked as their robber drives off with their car.

This one is a little shorter than the original, but then that is because there is no preliminary pickup – the action gets going right from the start as the would-be hitchhiker immediately pulls her gun when they stop for her and once they see her and recognize her, she wastes no time in getting her revenge.

Without further ado… enjoy. Images are here (for the video which can be direct linked through here🙂

Hitchhiker Robbed, Stripped Naked, and Stranded on the Road

I have always found the image of someone being stripped naked by the side of the road and then left there as the car drives off to be a particularly forlorn and exposed image to see. And that is exactly what you will see here.

This takes on a slight twist of the usual story about not picking up hitchhikers. In this case, it isn’t the hitchhiker who is the problem – it is the people who stop for her.

Also of note is just how long ago this was shot. It sometimes seems like the time horizon gets further and further out as I have more and more material to release. This is ultimately a good thing as it lets me sit back and relax a bit when it comes to production. I also have more time to think of more interesting scenarios. Ultimately, I have determined that I would rather short something interesting than shoot at all, so now I have the luxury of waiting for the right inspiration. I have some truly awesome things in the pipeline. I can hardly wait to release it all. Enjoy.

Hiker Robbed of her Clothes then Handcuffed

What a joy it was to get outside again, with green on the trees instead of bare branches. The only downside was the bugs, which are sometimes apparent in the video. But no matter, the trees were beautiful, and Stephanie was especially gorgeous walking out there naked, trying to hide behind the plants. That, of course, got harder once her hands were handcuffed behind her back.

One of the dangers of shooting out in nature is you never know what you will encounter. In this case, while we were on an ostensibly seldom-used path, three people (two men and a woman, all fairly young) happened to come down the path while we were shooting. So there was almost a real naked embarrassment and exposure shot there as they came up. Had I been thinking ahead, I could have caught that on video, though I did get the first few seconds of noticing they were coming. I couldn’t use that in the video, though, for obvious reasons.

Once they came up, we hid behind the trees, and may not have been noticed, except it was right by where Stephanie had taken her shoes off and I hadn’t picked them up yet, so they saw her shoes. Not wanting them to take her shoes (they commented on them), she came out of the trees and asked them not to touch them. Of course, she was completely naked at the time, and was trying her best to cover up behind the leaves. They noted this, and a rather amusing exchange occurred. They then went on their way. Unfortunately, they went further down the path, so a similar sort of encounter happened on the way back. For that, she just hid naked in the trees til they were past.

Then later, toward the end, we heard a bunch of what were probably teen boys doing skateboard jumps in the woods very nearby, so we had to move a bit to finish or they would also have gotten an eyeful.

But despite the risk and the close calls, it was fun and there are some absolutely gorgeous shots here. I got every good angle there is of Stephanie (and there are plenty!), and she looks quite worried about being seen naked… perhaps because she actually already was early on in the filming. And of course her worry went up considerably once she was handcuffed!

Without further ado, here are some sample images (and the video can be found through here):
