2009 Challenge, Day 104: TATTOO

"Tattoo: Abendmahl", by MissAgentCooper

Today’s theme for the 2009 Challenge is TATTOO. In recent years, more and more people have been getting tattoos. This has become so accepted that most of our culture has accepted some form of tattooing as mainstream. So, get out and find someone you know with a sweet tattoo. The odds are good that they don’t have some nice photographs of it, so offer to give them a few prints. Use your portrait skills and get some good shots. Maybe use some off camera lighting skills too! If you know someone planning to get one, see if you can get some nice shots while they’re getting it, that would rock!

Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″ and “2009challenge104“. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
