The person & star symbol stands for Night Portrait or Night Photography. This mode uses a combination of flash and long exposure to pick the ambient (available) light in the background. Use this mode to take pictures of persons in low-light conditions. The use of a tripod is often recommended.
This photograph was part of a self funded project which involved photographing people with no modelling experience but with lots of beautiful tattoos.
I really admire the artwork that can be produced on the human body. The concept of taking these photographs was to capture the uniqueness of each tattoo, which is personal and special to each individual.
The above photographs are complied in a book called ‘Romantic Tattoos’. This book can be purchased from Amazon for £17.
I am currently looking for more people with tattoos for photo shoots, (preferably local to me) please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
