Tattoos with Friends

This was about a month back. I was covering an event for UrbanDaddy at Capitale. My friend and I were upstairs in the VIP area where a tattoo artist from Black Banditz had set up to ink revelers up with free tattoos. To get into the mix, we each picked from their selection of free work and got some new ink. This sequence of photos features this artist working on my friend’s forearm.

This Is Me

A self portrait I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Everything that anyone needs to know about me. Haha!

Anatomy of This Art Project

So these photos below are from a 2 part photo shoot that began on Friday night. This section of the shoot involved photographing the model’s body parts. This portion took maybe a half hour to do — if that. The second portion of this project involves making 4×6 prints of these shots then bringing them to our second shoot. They’ll then be arranged around the model. The purpose of this project is to create a confrontational portrait while touching feminine sexuality and denying the audience eye contact with the subject.

I’ll post the final version of this project when it’s completed. Session #2 is tomorrow.

The Stitched Up Jack-O-Lantern

Anyone who knows me personally knows that I’m a fanatical Halloween enthusiast (redundancy check here?). In saying that, I do a lot of Halloween activities that range from cemetery photo walks (alone of course) to haunted houses. Another thing I like to do is make Halloween-esque photographs such as the pumpkin below. I’ve done photos like these every year since 2009. I was going for a film noir/German Expressionist look here by casting the shadow on the wall. Enjoy!
