Trying my hand at Alternative Portraiture

I'm always up for trying out something new. I did a portraiture course a little earlier this year and part of it was taking an Alternative portraiture shot. Alternative portraiture is a form of portraiture that requires a good understanding of the traditional concepts of portraiture, combined with a creative outlook. It's main aim is to capture the essence of an individual in an artistic and unusual manner.

I decided to try something a little less traditional with the pose here and focus on the model's tattoos. Here is the final shot, I've included a black and white variation too, because I can't decide which one I like most. Very different to my usual work, but interesting none the less.
