this is a photo of my good friend bo adams, who also happens to be my tattoo artist. i wanted to try out a new ringlight i just purchased and it seemed like today was a good a day as any. what do you think of the shot?
if you ever need a tattoo, check out the electric pen in north hollywood. he does great work, is super nice, and is surprisingly affordable.
i’ve been somewhat obsessed with photography lately. i like creating original characters. glamour portraits just don’t offer much to me in terms of stimulation, but creating little weirdo moments does. there are a lot of photographers who know how to light, but most of them just pose a scantily clad woman in front of a backdrop, or next to a car. that does not interest me. i like photographs that offer more intrigue, that seem to ask, what the hell is going on here? while i still have a lot to learn, this photo makes me laugh.
i shot this with my nikon D7000 and two nikon sb-700 speedlights. peep my flickr for more.
