  1. Boy it's gonna be a busy/long week.
    And it started right here today;

    (BTW, ALL these were taken with my new D3 I got yesterday. Could NOT be happier with a camera!!!!!!!!! Thought my D300 and D2x were good but the D3, WOW!)







  2. Gorgeous girl. Great photos. Can't say I understand her reasoning to plaster so many tattoos on her otherwise flawless skin. I'm cool with one or two smaller ones, but a full sleeve and tats visible above the bust line leave me wondering why. And I'm not an old fashioned guy either.

    Superb shots of a lovely lady. keep up the good work.

    I love 4 and 7!
  6. Wow Nick, these are some seriously nice images. I love the moodiness of these poses of this beautiful lady.

    I quite agree with that.
  7. I prefer a lady without ink but it takes all kinds I guess. I often wonder if these folks consider what that will look like in 40 years... :eek: 

    Anyhow, I'm amazed at how you seem to have an endless supply of gorgeous models at your fingertips. Nice shots!

    Nice! Very nice. Congrats on the new camera :biggrin:
  9. Thanks folks!
    I truly appreciate and am humbled by your responses!
    I actually like taking images of models with ink work, it gives me even more scope to try new ideas and concepts! I see it as a model waiting to be transformed into art whilst also sporting art themselves, bit like a two for one ;) 
    Added to that it may indeed be bringing me some work ;)

    Wow, great stuff! :eek:  Although I'm not really feeling the ultra-thin DOF on a lot of them. Except #4. It really works for me there. Seems maybe a bit "over-done" on the others though. What lens? Let me guess, 200mm f/2? :biggrin:

    Those are nice, I agree, that guitar shot is spectacular. Looks like a cool album cover :) 
  14. Can only agree there. A great series, a stunning model- really classy stuff. Enjoy your new D3!!

    beautiful model, and photos. I enjoy girls with ink when it is well done.

  16. Love #4! Beautiful Model! :cool: 

    You will love your D3, after owning it for a while and then going back to other cameras, I think the D3 has the most true to life colors than any camera I have ever seen.

    She's got a beautiful face but all that ink isn't going to be so great when she's 40 years older with the arms that go with that age. It's bad enough seeing an old wrinkled up guy with shriveled up tattoos but women are going to be way worse.
  18. Hey Nick, the bokeh is awesome in these shots, what lens?

    Very nice... I like #'s 3 & 4 the most.
  20. Thanks ALL of ya!
    I truly am humbled by ALL your responses.
    I agree the DOF is strong BUT I was shooting a model and not scenery. Thing is at times (esp. this time of year here in TX) the avenues are less for interest to my mind (not to mention all the harsh light). So the shallow DOF seem's to help. Esp. when a model wants images for her port y'know. And also, it's just TOO damn easy to do with the Cream Machine :) 
    It is a "Cream Machine" (thanks Uncle Frank) aka 85mm f/1.4

    As for the ink again. I am very reliably informed 1 in 4 women now have a tattoo. Most have them in more covered places but still have them. I am getting more requests to shoot models like this so who am I to say no? ;) 

    Actually, although large and harder to "hide" I like this sleeve of Hibiscus etc. in more muted colours. It's very pleasant and pretty up close, for now anyway, but IMO will need re-doing sometime to keep it's already muted colours. Not an easy or cheap task.
