Set Up Shot! Ryan (Raine Wilder) came to me after seeing some of the shots I did for his friend Tony Touch. I recognized him from local bands around Toledo, but apparently he was trying to do a self-release of a rap album. He wanted a single album cover for digital distribution, and had a concept ready for me. He had a pretty sweet barn out near Maumee, OH, and it turned out to be a pretty rad location for everything. Part of his concept was he wanted a real heart coming out of his tattoo on his chest with an on/standby switch protruding from it. I think after everything it ended up turning out pretty much exactly how he wanted it. I was having a little bit of trouble making the heart look convincing so I had a little help from my friend Jeeefer with the skin peeling back.

This consumed a good part of my Saturday. Part of my post-production work for a CD-album cover and poster. This is my first try a a small "commission" like this. Now you may understand why I'm failing horribly in my visiting the photos of my friends. . sorry. . . The bricks on the left side were done by making a partial "mask" and then turning it into a negative, and layering it back. There ARE flaws in it, but since it will end up as a 4 inch x 4 inch CD cover, they should be OK at that size. 1k-9480 album-poster 1cr

Three random tattoo ideas
My little sister was getting hers (my 2 other sisters already had one) and I decided on a whim to get one, too. Since I'd previously been very anti-tattoo it really surprised them that I was doing it, which was fun for me. I haven't regretted it one bit and am definitely excited about getting another tattoo some day.
I can usually get a pretty nice DoF/Bokeh in my macro shots, but I think this is the first time I achieved it in a regular setting.
