photoblog image Teach Me
This picture was taken in an old ferry in the harbour of Paramaribo, with natural light.

That's a very powerful shot has it been used somewhere else ? it evokes memories of somehting. regardless I like this. smile
Patrick Krolis: Thank you for your comment. As far as I know this is an original shot. I have posted it on a few places. So maybe you saw it on another website. We worked through a series of poses and locations on the ferry, actually to hastely because we wanted to "maximise" the use of the light that was particulary beautiful at the time of the shoot. This shot was my most memorable picture, after cropping out some noisy details of the original picture. I cropped to what was in my opinion a more powerfull composition. Because of the state of the ferry, (gaping holes in the floor) the distance to the model, and the limitations of the camera used, I couldn't zoom in close enough.

This is indeed a very good shot, but just one small point; please make sure you smooth out clothing creases on the skin (stomach area here) before you shoot. Otherwise great work. Regards, Neil.
Patrick Krolis: Thanks for your comment. I totally do agree with you. Actually I prefer my models not to wear any tight clothing when they come to the shoot. That way the skin has no marks like in this case. I decided to post the unretouched picture. I have a version where I corrected the clothing creases with Photoshop. But I thought that would not fit this picture.

Intentionally or not you've put a smiley ShMood on so I won't critique it. Does show a good eye for composition although I would have some comments.

Welcome to Shutterchance!
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much for your comment. I am glad to state that I had unintentionally put that smiley ShMood on. So I corrected that. I am all ears and eyes for all kinds of comments.

Patrick Krolis: That is too much of a compliment. Thank you very much. It might be the best work out of my portfolio wink Now I have nothing else to show sad
Your Archive has a lot of extraordinary shots. I will comment more closely on your pictures as soon as I can go one by one through them.

i love the way the strands of hair hang from her left nipple.was it intentional? The pubic hair also works too.
i wish i had more time to take great pics.
By the way,welcome to shutterchance.
Patrick Krolis: Thanks for your welcoming words. No the strands of hair on the nipple was not intentional. Actually the model was standing on the other side of a big gaping hole in the old ferry.

PS. You are the only trini around here? I am quite often in Trinidad.

adebanji alabi 16 Dec 2006, 16:29

Hi Patrick, always a pleasure to see a fellow country man and a friend promoting amazing work online.
As usual a great composition, the softness of the light-shadow of her skin, perfect choice for the dept of field. Impressive work Patrick!
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Rafael!! I am glad you joined Shutterchance too. Now we can show the world even more beautiful things, people, places and Art from Suriname. Thank you very very much for the compliment, coming from you it is so very special.

This is such a stunning photo..i love the rustiness of the background in contrast to the perfection of the body...

Patrick Krolis: I am still in love with this photograph, can't do much with it in Suriname though
