I said my new year’s resolution was to photograph and post about it at least once a week. I know I’m already a week behind, but I have good reason. With the little spare time I have to spend on my photography endeavors each week I simply did not have enough time left to write about it all last week. That was because I spent it all doing the actual photographing…lol.
I spent last Friday evening working on the next subject [Naomi] for my series on tattoos and body ink. She was a great sport and subject to work with. I’m on a bit of a time crunch with this series as I would like to have it ready for exhibit/display by late this spring or summer. The entire series will be available for a very limited print run. My main goal is to present the subject of body ink and tattoos to a mainstream audience in a fashion that highlights it’s artistic qualities and present a different take on my subjects as curators of fine art. Below are some behind the scenes shots of our photo shoot as well as a sample. Because this series will be made available in limited print production only, I am less inclined to publish any of the images on the web.
The main shots were taken with the Canon 5D Mark III and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM. The behind the scenes shots were taken with the Canon 7D and the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM. Two Canon 430EX speedlite flashes were used for lighting.
