It just so turned out that I am surrounded with really talented body paint artists. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I shoot a lot of modern circus performers and maybe it is just the route life planned for me. Either way, I am surrounded by wonderful body painters. I also see my share of UV body art photoshoots. The results are usually very noisy and flat. Plus it is quite hard to avoid some softness and slight blur that comes with the long exposure required to get enough light in. Light that should have made the details shine, but is lost due to blur. I was obsessed with finding a way to take good pictures of this art form that will make the fine details pop out like they should. I did it, with a big fat Sharpie.
