One of the shots Menat wanted was a picture of her new tattoo. The tattoo is an exact replica of Angelina Jolie’s shoulder tattoo, Menat, wanted the tattoo immortalized photographically. So in creating the shot, we had to come up with a concept where the tattoo would be the focus. I had her look over her shoulder and centered the light on the tattoo to emphasize it as the main character. I chose to make it a black and white to give Menat a little mystery hiding her face in the dark, but leaving her shoulder in the light. I like using this type of lighting technique on a black background because the light cut off is so instant it looks like she literally stepped out of darkness.
