Old Style, New Edge


I love the juxtaposition of new into old.  Old movie star portraits with new style body mods and tattoos shock they eye and turn the studio censors of the 1950’s in their graves.  Art is defiance of the standard and the norm.

The subject of this Strobist-style portrait is Ruby von Vanity. She’s an impressive dancer and model who knows her genre.  I used an old Nikon D90 with a Nikon SB-600 on an extendable wand. The flash was triggered by Nikon CLS, an inexpensive, but sometimes unreliable solution.
