The journey with rope is the experience, where you can find a lot of room for interpretation, and has become an artistic way to share experiences and feelings, and thanks to its aesthetic, it has become very popular between photographers and artists.

Photoshoots have become popular between Shibari practitioners and lovers, where photographers have founded an incredible way of sharing and transmitting the feeling and sensations of a Shibari scene through photography. Usually, the Shibari photoshoots don’t include the sexy interaction between couples, it is more of a model and rigger interaction that is purely professional.

Shibari photoshoots don’t necessarily focus on the dynamic of interaction between individuals. It’s more about creating and capturing art, as well as achieving a particular effect on the photos.

A Shibari photoshoot is generally a balance between fun and work, which depends on the people involved. Make sure your ties look perfect. Also, consider that models may have to pose or hold positions for a long time. Lighting will also play a very important role, since you must find the perfect light for the shot.
All those amazing photos of Shibari you admire on the internet, have a lot of work, time and perfectionism. Sometimes you will get the perfect shot at the moment, and sometimes you will need days for that perfect shot. The greater the skill of the models, riggers and photographer the easy, aesthetic, sexy and fun it will be.
