Tattooed: Students and their ink

Posted in assignment work by bermanphotos on February 12, 2009

So yesterday I completed the 2nd day of shooting in my portrait series of tattooed students for my college paper.

This time, I was in the school’s studio, with the help of my photo editor and assistant-for-the-day Macy Wood. We set up on the black seamless with the same 3 light setup as before: all Nikon speedlights, fired with Pocket Wizards. My main light was a small softbox and I also had a flagged hair light, and a snooted flash off to the side which I varied using as an extra rim light or to highlight part of a tattoo.

These subjects were great and so into the shoot which made it a real blast.









I am happy with these, and hopefully I will be able to continue it soon enough next week.

Thanks for looking!
