Carol Seleme's Artwork for "V/H/S"

Carol Seleme recently did some artwork to accompany an exclusive interview AGT got with “V/H/S” writer Nick Tecosky. What do you guys think? I’m sure she’d be interested to hear your feedback.

Carol Seleme's Take on Urban Modeling

Carol Seleme Headshot
This is Carol Seleme’s artwork. Note the meticulous attention to detail – the extra head movement during “the pitch” in panel one, the look of drowsy arousal on the photographer’s face in the last panel… I’ve actually seen that baby oil spiel go down on a “professional” magazine shoot before.

Still, there’s more to it than this I think, e.g., why is it “art” when it’s a rail-thin Eurocentric model like Gisele, but taboo erotica when it’s a truly voluptuous model?

Carol's AllGoodThings.tv Review of "The Artist"

After nearly a month, haha. Anyway, check it out in HD (1080) let me know your thoughts Indosplacers. YouTube is great for getting content out there - not so great for collecting intelligent commentary like the type we’ve all grown accustomed to here. Hopefully, Bria Myles and Mal Malloy will be up next.

Carol Seleme- The Keyframes Don't Lie

SelemeINdosplace
I’ve been meaning to post this “Dear Cali” video for a while. It’s not often a model will get a music video where they are the lead and they really get to own the production - where every frame is like a love letter to the model. This is one of them.

You can scrub along this entire music video and just about any frame you land on of Carol Seleme is awesome. Watch that sexy little walk she does in front of the lowrider. Self possessed sexy. Yep, good ole Carol has come into her own. Also, thumbs way up to Adam Roberts Photo for shooting this right.

Christi K - New Music Video

It looks like Christi K, who I photographed last year, is ready to show off that bodacious bod that was, at least initially, one of the draws for my shoot with her. Happy I never felt my pictures really did Christi’s figure justice, for whatever reason. This video, however, is one of the better displays I’ve seen of her voluptuousness. The video is by Young De for those interested. Carol Seleme pops up toward the end of the video and it’s interesting to see the two of them onscreen together. I would suggest watching the 1080p version for maximum… effect.

A Little BTS - Christi K and Carol Seleme

While I believe I may have posted some interview of Carol once before, I know I haven't of Christi. I think she has a very nice, fresh screen appeal. Both clips give you an idea of what these beauties are like behind the scenes. Click image for video. (Note: videos are in 1080p HD format)

Carol Seleme - Kevin McCall - "Naked" ft. Big Sean

SelemeIndosplaceGraphic.001
Carol Seleme is looking great in the new Kevin McCall video "Naked." This is one of those better-than-average music videos for an aspiring model, as it really showcases the models and has some nifty production design. Carol was kind enough to give me a brief interview on how to get into a music video like this. It's a good read for aspiring models. (Below photo by Roberto Blanco.)
SelemeGraphic.001a

1. How did you get the video?

I got the video through Shatter Proof Marketing, which is an agency I work with. I also book lots of work independently but most music videos I book through them.

2. Were you selected outright, call back, etc.

In this instance I didn’t even have to go to a casting call, which was great. They were looking for girls who were at least 5’8 and I got booked through my pics.

3. Is booking a job just thru pics alone something a newbie could expect to happen, or is that reserved for the more experienced models that people have seen in action?

I think as long as they have good pics and get submitted they should be fine.

4. Was the shoot a long day? Several days?

Music videos are always long . . . I was there from 2pm to 1am on Easter Sunday.

5. How is the pay for these sorts of gigs, ballpark - did negotiate at all or was it fixed?

The pay varies a lot for music video these days, you can always negotiate if you are ready to piss a production off, but it might be worth it! I would say the pay for this one was on the average side, like $350.

6. Of course, the big question - did that special effect shot require you to actually be naked for the vid?

I was hoping to let people’s mind wonder on this one . . . but I think we all know there’s no reason to be naked on set when there is this amazing little invention called pasties out there!

7. Any advice to aspiring models about breaking into this business?

Do it if you think the pay is reasonable, not for the exposure, or else you can be deeply disappointed. Its always exciting when the video comes out and you got good camera time, but you can never guarantee that, and a production will always try to convince you to do it for cheaper by throwing out some BS like ‘You’re the lead!’ then you get there and yeah you’re the lead . . . along with 8 other ‘leads’! So don’t even give them your phone number since they think models are brain-dead and will try to take advantage of you, give them your manager’s number.

What matters is that you get compensated for your time, like on any other job. So don’t do it for free or for some pitiful pay, and don’t be throwing yourself in front of the camera, respect yourself.

Carol Seleme - Sexy Throwback Video

Here we've got one of my favorite model's debut video at Indosplace - Carol Seleme doing some subtle/sexy dance moves on a break from working on her painting. A lot of people never caught this clip, so I've created a link to the very high quality version as well as a Youtube version (I'd suggest the HD version - the Youtube one is meh)...

Reach Carol on Twitter here and check out her new artwork here.

New, Slimmer Carol Seleme Daniel

Carol Seleme Daniel shows off her more svelte figure in these new photos. While I am definitely a fan of the thicker Carol, there's no denying she looks damn good here. So here's a question for my bloggers - which do you prefer, thin or thicker Carol? And if the latter, how do you think her being more voluptuous would impact her ability to get quality, commercial gigs? Reach Carol on Twitter here.

New Carol Seleme Daniel Candids...

Indosplace favorite, Carol Seleme Daniel, at a recent fashion event. Check out the video at 1080p: after the intro with Carol, go to the 6 min mark. There's a certain panache about her presence that was only hinted at in the photos. She's starting to become more self possessed of her sexy.

Carol Seleme Daniel - Smooth Girl #51

This is Carol Seleme Daniel's big time debut in Smooth Magazine, and it's an anniversary issue too! First, I gotta give props to Smooth Magazine editor Sandy for selecting Carol on my recommendation. This happened very easily thanks to her. I must say, even tho Yoncee's photos are nice, Carol's are without a doubt my favorite in the magazine. And that isn't based on any bias either. Check the the botton of the 3rd photo - there's a nice little credit for Indosplace Happy

Carol Seleme Daniel & Christiane K - Reprisal

I've spent most of my photographic "career" trying to cast curvy models in a more commercial, mainstream light. This might have been one of my more successful attempts. Additional Carol Seleme Daniel photo added 5/22.

Top Picks

You can click on the image to enlarge it. The two main qualifications to be on this list: 1) I have to shoot with the model, and 2) they had to be in my top traffic searches (e.g., people are still looking for them on my blog). There are couple newcomers on the list, like Carol, and a couple that got bumped. Sad They are listing in alphebetical order.

Carol Seleme Daniel - Bonus Easter Egg

Just some unseen footage that I thought was nice. Same rules at the others: download code is embedded as keyword in JPEG file. This is probably the longest of the clips, but most of it is just Carol painting... Hint: Relates to a post that concerns Melyssa Ford... Song in video: Blue Magnetic Ocean - Four A.D. (Image enlarges upon clicking Winking )

The Last Easter Egg (Carol Seleme Daniel)

Well, this is the last of the Carol Easter Eggs. I've also included a HD version of the teaser, which is super easy to find. Also, since people are having a problem with the first EE, here's a major hint: it is under a Khrysti Hill post and the date corresponds to the number of letters in Carol's first and middle name. Also, to make up for the difficulty of the first EE, the last one is easy to find. It relates to the title of the art piece Carol completed for this video, which you can see on her art website. Same as EE 2 - download link is a keyword embedded in JPEG.

Carol Seleme Daniel: Easter Eggs

Carol's first Easter Egg is up. I'll be adding others later tonight. The first one is a kind of peaceful, meditative montage of Carol painting. It's in pretty high resolution at 960 x 540. A hint is that it is hidden in an ad under a blog post that relates in some way to Carol's first and middle name. Not quite an anagram, but something relating to the specifics of her name: Carol Seleme Daniel. Click the image below for the introductory video, explaining the painting.

UPDATE: Easter Egg number two has been added. The hint is that it is in an ad related to a Bria Myles post - that's a big hint. But there's something tricky to this one. When you find it, you will have to use an image editing program (e.g., Apple's Preview, Photoshop, Elements, etc.) to extract the "keyword" from the ad image. The keyword will be the download link. It's a little too easy for y'all to just rip the site for the word "sendspace" or "megaupload," lol. As for the music in the clip, what can I say: I like soundtracks, and specifically Thomas Newton Howard. Happy This is a really good clip BTW.

The Career Path of an Indogurl: Carol Seleme Daniel

I met Otis College art student Carol Seleme Daniel in late January 2011. At the time, she had a pretty nice portfolio on Model Mayhem, but really hadn't received any major exposure. This was kind of surprising to me, because she seemed to be an accident waiting to happen (in a good way). So we set up a shoot in early February, and just as I expected, the moment her feature hit the blog it went viral and was picked up by several other popular urban blogs. As a result, I decided to submit the photos I had taken of her to the editor of Smooth magazine. Within 15 minutes of receiving the photos, the editor contacted me and said she wanted to do a major photo layout on Carol. That feature will debut in May, but a preview - the Rear View - was also dropped in the most recent issue of Smooth with Daphne Joy on the cover.

Of course, this wouldn't have happened if Carol hadn't been a great model who was willing to trust what I wanted to do with her. It's also a prime example of how the internet is a new and powerful channel for exposure for aspiring models.

Christiane & Carol Candid - Blog Overhaul

I'm trying out a new blog format and I'm interested to hear people's thoughts on it. The main reason for this change is that I need greater width for blog content so that I can post large sized photos. That little bouncy button to the left of the blog entry - called a "badge" - may go because deleting it gives me extra width. There's a price to pay for this new format: the search feature is gone. I could add a new page just for searches, depending on how important it is, so let me know...

Carol Seleme Daniel - Art School Confidential

CarolSelemeArtwork
I was starting to think art school cuties like Audry in Dan Clowes' "Art School Confidential" were just a figment of his imagination. That is, until I met Carol Seleme Daniel - an art student at Otis School of Design in Los Angeles. Carol is one of those rare women who looks even better in person than she does in her photos. We shot in Venice a few days ago, and there are lots of good shots to come, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, if you want to check out her art portfolio, you can see that here. P.S. Carol checks the blog so she may join the discussion here once it gets going.
