photoblog image Lindsay
Photography by Patrick Krolis
Make up and Styling by Gillian Calor
Photographic Assistent and Light by Fausto Fraser

Finally we did Lindsay's shoot, a few days before she leaves, more photo's from the shoot to be posted soon. It was also the first ime fo a few other things, first we worked in this setting as a team, it went wonderfully well. Lindsay was a bit rusty during the warm up, but during the real shoot she was a real supermodel, we had so much fun and produced wonderful images.

On this photograph, you see that I finally tried to shoot outside with a model again, not only that but also for the first time really used my SB800 speedlite remotely, and how I loved the effect. Fausto was a great help in this one as he was holding the flash in his hand, that way we could very fast fine tune the direction of the light.

The photograph is as is straight out of the camera, this shoot got me very excited about the future possibilities. We also did part in the studio which I will show you another day.

great angle shot.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Dotun!! The angle is indeed very interesting, can you imagine me there lying on the ground trying to get this shot? smile

I really like the composition too, as regards the point of view.

I really don't like the cables and light emanating from the model's head, though. It looks so avoidable that it seems you meant it to look that way, but to my mind it looks like the classic amateur error that you'd want to clone out. I think this otherwise excellent portrait would stand very well without it.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much for the comment Colin, I understand the feeling that it looks like the classic amateur mistake, but you are right it was done on purpose. Maybe it really doesn't work, will await more comments to sense the feeling of the community. If it doesn't I will clone them out, but then to my feeling the portrait lost some of it's magic, in my perception, they stand out like a crown.

My personal feeling is that you can go either way with the cables, Patrick. The fact that they are in the pic accentuates that this is a MODEL being shot. She would look like a model regardless, but it adds a touch of the workplace environment in photography. I see LOTS of model shots with all the photographic paraphernalia in the pic!

I love the color tones and perspective!
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much for your valuable input,they really add to the picture in my opinion, but I will try to shop them out and see the effect, I also do agree with you that she might look like a model regardless :d

Good lighting as well, the off flash worked :d

Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Bro, glad you liked my lighting as well!!!! It's really a very powerful tool those little system flashes, looking at these result I almost want to get the studio lighting out the door smile (no not really) but I am impressed enough to work this direction a lot more, and to get myself another system flash something like a SB600, those little devils are very powerful tools. Do you and your Canons have any similar experience, I guess the 500 series speedlite from Canon perform similar to the SB800 speedlites from Nikon
