Paint Photo Shoot with Tank Joey and Jaclyn (NSFW)

Models Tank Joey and Jaclyn came to the studio last week to have some fun with paint. I started with two large drop cloths to cover the floor and then placed white paper over top for a high key look. For lighting we use 3 lights, 2 lighting the background and a 7' parabolic with diffusion cover as the main light. I wanted to show colour more than muscle which is why I went with the softer look. Paints were finger paints from the local art supply store. Each of us had a couple of ideas and poses in mind, after that we just played with the paints. It really makes my job easier working with two really good models who know how to move and pose and smile, even when the paint is cold. After we did the duo shoot Joey stayed for a bit and we got some extra images as that man's audience are voracious consumers of his media. It was a good night and clean up was far less messy than expected.
