Last week I had the opportunity to take photos of another friends’ tattoo – a really exquisite cherry blossom.

From a technical point of view, I still have some work to do on lighting – although there is only so much you can do with a couple of flashguns. The black backdrop works well with pale skin, while the washed out backdrop gives a good high-key effect.

I was particularly pleased with a couple of the photos – the lighting was just about right and the poses were excellent (considering this was her first time doing anything like this, the poses were elegant and natural-looking).
