Had this idea in my head for an image that was both LOVING & BRUTAL at the same time. Had this friend who I had photographed before & had a lot of Tattoo’s, he came into my head as the perfect person to use in this image, he also had a girlfriend who had as many Tat’s as he did & was into alternative images.
I e-mailed them with my idea & it was all on they were keen, using a friendly make-up artist we went for it. I used a combination of Natural light, continual lighting & Fill flash to get the effect that I wanted. Using some good computer programs, I am happy with the finished image.
I spent a lot of time working the image out in my head, story booking it, step by step, lighting, poses, lens, aperture, frame of mind I wanted them in. Basically I had the final image & worked backwards.
I like it?
