Thursday Night Tattoo

Pinch and I went with Emilie to get a tattoo. I experimented with closer compositions that I wouldn't regularly be comfortable photographing on assignment with a stranger. I like how they turned out, the emotions and gestures feel quieter. I also played with an ever so slightly slower shutter... barely detectable but that's what I like about it. 

For the edit, I challenged myself to convey the mood of the situation without showing the obvious: the tattoo itself and the tattoo machine/needle (so if you're squeamish, don't worry).

Third Day in New York

O06A9388.jpg

Our rooftop is pretty quiet. Being up there feels like you're floating above the city. My roommate Pinczuk (a friend from my high school newspaper) and I raced up 5 or 6 flights of stairs to witness some perfect stormy light, share our frustrations about one of the cats, who destroyed $700 worth of laptop chargers, and do a little drone flying. 

Today was my first day as an intern, one of three days of orientation before we begin to shoot assignments on Thursday. Looking forward to getting started!
