Great news! I was just informed that we earned a runner up position on Viewbug! for their 300 Tattoos Contest, we snagged the number 2 spot! That's wonderful! I couldn't be happier. Big thanks to Lexie for her obviously incredible contribution to this image and also thanks to Abbi for her amazing hair and makeup work on that day.
The great story behind this image is that it was really a happy accident. Lexie was lying there and I had crossed behind her to adjust the lights, and I was crossing back when I saw this image/angle and asked her to pose real quick. I snapped a few at this set up, then went back to shoot her in profile. I'm glad this angle caught my eye, it's really a stellar shot.
For all the details on the contest and to see the other (frankly, amazing. I'm honored to be in such esteemed company,) contest winners, check out Viewbug's Blog here: http://blog.viewbug.com/300-tattoos-photo-contest-winners/
