    I love this artwork. I can't wait to photograph more of it when there is more color done.

    Thanks. I'm waiting for her to get more color on the koi that is not in focus on her back then we are going to re-shoot the series.

    Lovely subject. Would you mind giving some detail to your lighting setup?

    My personal suggestions:-

    - Use a black or at least plain background, I find the patterns to the left competing with the OOF tatts on her back.
    - Softer light, get it big and get it in close. This will help smooth the skins complexion.
    - Bracket your DOF, I like the way you have isolated your subjects, the cherries, with a very shallow DOF. I also think the shot would work very well with a deeper DOF.

    Of course these are your creative decisions, just providing another point of view.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Thanks Rhubarb, I appreciate the comment. The shot was impromptu and the room was actually dark I have a Nikkor SB-26 which I used to bounce the light off of the wall. I was using my Nikkor 28mm lens with the aperature at 2.8 or close to it if I remember right. I was handheld and doing the shot from very close up. I agree about the background but like I said it wasn't a planned shoot. We are going to be doing another series and we were already planning on using a black background. She has quite a bit of artwork on her back and arms as you can see. As she gets more color work done the I will be shooting more.
