Soulmates - Tattoowise
Three random tattoo ideas
This is the first portrait from a series I'm starting. I met Maris on one of my fashion shoots. She was the assistant makeup artist and her look immediately struck me. I asked if she would come back for a portrait and she said yes.
I shot her on a Rebel XTi (above) and on a Mamiya 645 pro with 120 B&W film. The negative film was ruined due to a bad mixture, but they were salvageable. I'll post a scan soon.
So I reshot her this weekend and she dyed her hair to black! I think this might be the last time we see a platinum blond Maris. Ah well, that's what photos are for!
This was shot in daylight through a giant diffuser. The sun was pretty low in the evening. I put a strobe above and behind her to make sure she separated from the background.
