    Shay is a beautiful model. She is a tattoo artist and wanted to showcase her tatto gun. I SUCK at posing so she posed herself. I AM NOT A MODEL PHOTOGRAPHER. She came to me because she liked my different post proccessing. CC Please.

    I did this shoot at 11am.

    I like the idea of your PP but for my personal taste it seems to be too much in #2 & #5 . . . thinking that perhaps 1/2 way between original and what you posted would
    look a little more natural yet give the hint of the processing you are doing. As stated, that's just my personal preference.

    Just an observation, it's rare to see a tatoo artist without any visible tatoos!

    I thought so to. Her tatoos are on her back. She did not want me to take pictures of them because she had a MAJOR reaction to suncreen and the sunscreen gave her welts on her skin. I had to touch up her arms because of the reaction.

    For what it's worth: total noob here but I like them all except for #1 and #5 - the effect appears a bit overwhelming.

    The others however, I think the lighting is even and subject sharp. #6 has a few blown highlights on her left bicep, her jeans and her fingers but not too distracting from the pose - I still happen to focus on her face right away.

    #4 is my absolute favorite because of the emotion it invokes plus I'm more biased towards artistic photos.

    Great shots!
