    I will be helping a friend to do some tattoo bodyart photoshoot for free. it my first time doing tis kind of shoot. I m not a pro. the place if the shoot will be at my friend house. I have some basic equipment for lighting (which I m not good at lighting) 2 flash, 2 light stand, 2 black umbrella and a small light box of coz camera n lenses. guess the lenses I will be bringing will be 17-50, 50 1.8G and 18-270. is the gear or equipment good enough and is there anything I need to take note or look out for? pls advise.. thank you.

    gear is more than good enough, do you know how to use them?

    anyway, just check out the portrait shooting and portrait lighting tutorials that you can find in youtube. there are so many of them that you will take awhile to finish them.
    awhile means few weeks......

    The first decision that needs to be made is the intended style of the shoot you'd like to achieve. Can browse online galleries for tattoos or body art to get some inspiration. Then you have to use the appropriate lighting to create that style.
    Exploring! :)
