Yesterday I was photographing a priest and others in a candlelit solemn ceremony. Today I’m in an antique store, photographing tattooed folks with studio lighting while hoping a little old lady doesn’t walk in to see Mark’s self portrait he has on his backside. I haven’t checked tomorrow’s assignments yet.

This assignment was supposed to be shot in our studio, but the story just cried out for location lighting. Mark, Liz, and others will be a sort of living-art-exhibit of tattoos at Clark Art and Antiques during the Gallery Hop this Friday. I checked with Tom Clark, who owns the store, let the subjects know of the change and set up over there. This is a preview of some photos that will be on our site later this week and in our Weekender.  The subjects were great people, and nothing was broken, and no one was offended. 

While I don’t have any tatoos myself, and don’t plan to, I think it’s great that we as a newspaper are not ignoring this kind of thing. 

For the photo-technocrati out there, I used a White lighting 800 on about 3/4 power with a grid for my main light and had an Alien Bee 400 full power with a tighter grid spot on the Lexington sign above the door. I was bracketing with a slow shutter speed (1/4 second to 1/20th second) to bring in the overcast window light and aperture between f11 and f16.  Using Pocket Wizard radio remotes was great. Worrying about ac cords knocking things over in an antique store makes me nervous enough with out worrying about a cord from my camera to the light getting caught on something while I’m shooting.
