Today I went down to the Seattle Tattoo Expo at Seattle Center with the hopes of setting up a mini studio — somewhere. You see, I didn’t have a backdrop at my disposal, and I didn’t think they would let me in with one anyway — so I set out to make somewhere work. As I wandered, it became clear that the indoors areas of the festival would be packed. That’s of course where hundreds of artists and subjects were tattooing and getting tattooed. Outside wasn’t much better; a metal sliding door that seemed promising was occupied by a vendor. Then I saw the backside of some vendor tents and I thought, that just might work. A single strobe popped at high enough power blew out the wrinkles on the tent enough to make a suitable backdrop, and the beauty dish boomed out overhead did the rest. It was a hot day, but I’m pleased by the frames I made in this improvised situation.

Thanks for looking!
