Another body art photo. This time, the theme was "myths and fairytales". I was a bit unsure about the black sparkly backdrop, but it almost merges with the sparkles on his body giving the picture a surreal quality that I really like. Lighting was from an SB900 speedlite positioned to the left of the model firing through a lumiquest diffuser.

I barely touched the image in post... crop, contrast, clarity, saturation all in Lightroom.

Thanks to the model Ben Clarke and the wonderful artist Janie Fearon.

Excellent work! The ONLY thing that distracts me from an otherwise awesome image are the bubbles on his body (?)/ or is it the background (?) or what is it? But great lighting and expression!
