Leila Lunatic Interview

Inteus Photography.


Leila Lunatic is an alternative model based in Krefield, Germany.


Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?

Leila Lunatic: I was born on the 21st of July in 1993 in a small town in the west of Germany. Nowadays I life in the neighbor town.

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?

Leila Lunatic: My cousin bought a good camera once and sometimes when we were bored we met to take some pictures, just for fun. But when I finished school and suddenly had a lot of free time I registered into a website for models and photographers, I used the pictures my cousin took for my sedcard there. And from this point I had loads of different shootings, I think over 150 now.

Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?

Leila Lunatic: I never wanted to become a model or something like that. I just wanted to have some nice pictures of me. And when I created the likepage on facebook, which was meant as a joke first, I got contacted by awesome designer and very talented photographers and worked with me. I think they made me a model, I just was a shy girl which always got bullied in school for the red hair, pale skin and the very skinny body.

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand out from others?

Leila Lunatic: Being open minded for trying different styles without losing their own individual touch.

Sinical Magazine: From a model's perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Leila Lunatic: In my opinion, a photo is great when it doesn't just show my outward appearance but my temper and emotions. It's important that the resulting picture is a kind of a real connection to my world of thought.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?

Leila Lunatic: I really love wearing tight latex clothes. It's an extraordinary feeling of having a second skin which clings to the body perfectly, but also shiny pvc clothes look awesome. Furthermore I loved to wear really tight laced corsets since I was 14, I think I can call that a true fetish.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Leila Lunatic: At the moment I discovered the so called electro-medieval genre, with bands like Helium Vola. But apart from that I'm madly in melodic-death-metal and heavy metal.

Sinical Magazine: What is the alt/fetish scene like in your city?

Leila Lunatic: Besides me I just know one fetish model from my city, but in some cities in the vicinity there are special clubs and events for the scene. The people are mostly really friendly and make you feel very comforable and accepted.

Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what else do you like to do for fun?

Leila Lunatic: I love riding roller coasters, spending time with my friends and family, sometimes just being silly and making mischief, reading good books, sewing new clothes, being outside and playing with my pets.

Sinical Magazine: What's up next for you?

Leila Lunatic: I will collaborate with a few really great designers and create awesome new pictures. Also I will model for some well known fasion labels. In spring next year I want to travel to Scandinavia, maybe I will do some photo shoots there too.

Amy Grey Interview

Amy Grey is an alternative/fetish model from Nuremberg, Germany.


Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?

Amy Grey: I was born on Dec. 8th, 1989 in Regensburg, Germany . Now I'm living in Nuremberg, Germany.

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?

Amy Grey: Hmmm difficult question... When I was 16 I was what people would call "goth"... I looked unique (or at least I thought so) and people started to tell me I should do photoshoots. I tried it and it was cool, plus it was good for my self-esteem, which was very low at that time. But that was only for fun. My first actual modelling job was for X-tra-X Underground Fashion when I was 18.

Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?

Amy Grey: Not really a magazine, although the X-tra-X catalogues did make me wanna become an alternative model. But it was rather people who inspired me, for example the amazingly beautiful Ophelia Overdose, or Masuimi Max, amongst others.

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand out from others?

Amy Grey: Well what makes me stand out from others... My hair, maybe. No but seriously, I think it's always important to not only take beautiful pictures, but also give them a personal touch. There is a difference between a good photo and a piece of art... Of course that's not always possible, but I try to tell a little story in every picture.

Sinical Magazine: From a model's perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Amy Grey: That my hips don't look fat :P Haha no, just kidding. I think that depends on the photo. If it's a product shoot, it is most important that the clothes look good from every angle. But if I do a photoshoot just for fun, of course it is important for me to look the way I want people to see me. If the chemistry between the model and the photographer is right, a photoshoot can be lots of fun, and that's what really matters (in my opinion).

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Amy Grey: It's 85 - 59 - 88 (bust, waist, hips in cm).

Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?

Amy Grey: 38.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?

Amy Grey: I don't have fetishes. But I really like black clothes, especially the "little black dress"... And I love platform boots.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Amy Grey: EBM, Future Pop such as VNV Nation, stuff like that.

Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what else do you like to do for fun?

Amy Grey: Shopping, of course. And I love cars! I have a 30 year old Porsche (his name is Gary), but I only drive him in the summer... In the winter months I drive a BMW, which is lots of fun too. I have recently done a photoshoot with my car, I hope I can show you the pics soon.

Sinical Magazine: What's up next for you?

Amy Grey: Hmmm, let's see... I have made a latex nurse dress recently and I want to shoot it in an abandoned hospital... And I want to really concentrate on making latex clothing.

Book review: My Favorite Model

Model: Carlotta Champagne. Photo by Richard Warren.

 

Goliath Books is a publisher of art and photography books. Founded in 1997, and specializing in publishing daring photography and art books.


My Favorite Model is a large hardcover book similar to Goliath's Latex Fashion Photography book. The book is 320 pages and the dimensions are 6.8 x 10.1 inches. The book is edited by Mike Bunge and Stephanie Kuhnen. The designer is Tanja Oberst. Carlotta Campgane is the cover model. She is photographed by Richard Warren.

The book features the work of 43 photographers who share images of their favorite model. Among the contributors are Bob Coulter, Emma Delves_broughton, Christine Kessler, Katja Erhardt, and many others. Models such as Ulorin Vex (twice!), Julie Strain, and Liz Ashley are featured in the book. 

 

Model: Michaela. Photo by Richard Murrian.


After the contents page, there is a short introduction presented in several languages (English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish). There is full nudity throughout the book. The clothing ranges from sexy lingerie, latex fetish attire, to regular clothing worn in a sexy manner, such as an unbuttoned white dress shirt that is wet. Each model and photographer has a 6-8 page pictorial. There is a 1-page Q&A with each model.


Model: Estella. Photo by Martin Pelzer.


The settings range from indoors to outdoors. Besides a studio setting, the indoor locations are luxorious hotel rooms, apartments, bathrooms, and industrial settings. A desert landscape is used for an outdoor photo set, a rooftop is used for another set, and the other outdoor locations are mainly wooded areas. There is a large variety of backdrops and lighting situations to be found in this book.


Model: Kumi. Photo by Eric Martin.


My favorite photo sets are located on pages 10-15 (Michaela/Photos by R. Warren), 18-25 (Carlotta Champagne/Photos by R. Warren), 42-49 (Estella/Photos by M. Pelzer), 94-101 (Veronika/Photos by J. Green), and 226-233 (Ulorin Vex/Photos by Katja Ehrhardt). At the end of the book there is brief information on each of the photographers. They list things such as what type of camera they use, lighting equipment, magazine publication credits, etc.

For different reasons some models stand out as a photographer's main muse and inspire the photographer to produce his best work. And My Favorite Model showcases a great variety of beautiful and interesting muses. Not every model and photo set hits the mark. There are a few models I found less then inspiring, and there are several that I would love to collaborate with and photograph someday. 

Overall, this is a great collection of mostly high quality images in a beautiful bound coffee-table book. There are many visual details to be found in this book and I will definetly be re-visiting this collection from time to time for inspiration. ~ Danny Stygion

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in photography?

Jana Krenova: My father was a photographer. He had to turn our apartment into a studio when he was shooting. I was surrounded by half naked models since I was a kid.

Sinical Magazine: What is the most important aspect of a composition to you?

Jana Krenova: Balance.

 

Model: Diana


Sinical Magazine: What type of camera equipment do you use?

Jana Krenova: For the past 7 years I was using Canon, recently I bought Fuji XE1, but today I saw the new Sony 7r and fell in love.

Sinical Magazine: What is your favorite lens (or focal length) for portraits?

Jana Krenova: It depends on what kind of portrait, but usually long lens is the best anything over 100.

 

Stemberkova Lucie


Sinical Magazine: Do you work with strobes or continuous lighting?

Jana Krenova: Strobes or natural light.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have a favorite lighting setup?

Jana Krenova: I love to use grids.

Sinical Magazine: Do you prefer to shoot on location or at a studio?

Jana Krenova: Never a studio, that is just too sterile. I always prefer a location.

 

 


Sinical Magazine: When did your fascination with nylons and pantyhose begin?

Jana Krenova: When I met Dian Hanson.

Sinical Magazine: What is it about nylons that appeals to you?

Jana Krenova: Pretty much everything ;-) They just make the leg look nice and enhance the shape. They hold it together because they don't stretch, and give it a nice shine, plus they feel good and they make me feel like a woman when I wear them, which is an instant turn on.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have a favorite brand of nylon stockings and pantyhose?

Jana Krenova: Stockings: Secrets In Lace, pantyhose: Wolford.


Model: Stara Lenka.


Sinical Magazine: When did you start shooting nylon-themed photo sets?

Jana Krenova: When I met Dian Hanson, 1997.

Sinical Magazine: What do you look for in a model?

Jana Krenova: A curve.

Sinical Magazine: When did your work first start appearing in Leg Show Magazine?

Jana Krenova: 1998.

Sinical Magazine: In your opinion, what made Leg Show Magazine so great?

Jana Krenova: Once again: Dian Hanson, she read the letter from readers and she understood this fetish, there were not only great pictorials, carefully selected models with awesome legs, but also great stories.


Model: Renata Bod


Sinical Magazine: When did you launch your website: www.bestlegshow.com?

Jana Krenova: 2010.

Sinical Magazine: How much content is on the site?

Jana Krenova: About 160 videos an 170 pictorials, at least 10 stories.

Sinical Magazine: There are over 100+ videos on the site. Can you talk about the video-side of your work?

Jana Krenova: Since I am a photographer I have a large inventory of pictorials but I did not have videos when I launched the site. I had to take classes in Final Cut Pro and videography. My brother is a pro in this so I can always get some tips from him. Videos are easier to shoot but harder to edit. Then there is the sound that has to be there. Lots of models do not speak english and some just refuse to speak at all. So I had to reach out to my friends here in NYC who are musicians and ask them for their permission to use their music. I am quite fanatical about that. I do not like the club, techno tunes you hear in most porn videos. To me that was a total turn off. Videos are a totally different ball game. I am still learning. But I enjoy it.

Sinical Magazine: What other projects are you currently working?

Jana Krenova: I shoot for www.secretsinlace.com and some behind the scenes of concert tours. I also shoot some portraits.
