Anyone who knows my work, knows that I love tattoos. So many of my models sport incredible ink, but the average tattoo shot is like looking at a slab of meat. The technique and style leaves a lot to be desired. My photos are more about subtlety and suggestion than that. This weekend, thanks to the powers that be at the PHILADELPHIA TATTOO ARTS CONVENTION – Which will be held February 13th-15th 2015, I will have the opportunity to tweak the boundaries once again with photo subjects that are as defiant about their body art as I am about my photography. I think it will be a good mix.
Techy Photo Stuff:
Model: Ruby Chiex, Nikon D800, Nikon 60mm f/2.8, 1/250, Nikon SB-800 fired remote using Nikon CLS, ISO 160
This was a strobist-style shot using a hand held speedlight.
