photoblog image Lindsay
Suby & Sinem from Milton Keynes, UK 13 Aug 2007, 00:37
I am totally in love with this shot Patrick, I saw yesterdays but for one reason or another i did not feel it 100%, but this one, with the conversion to B&W the lighting, the look on her face, the whole of the word "ghetto" in the shot, this for me is truly an awesome awesome image.

You get an EXTREMELY rarely bestowed :"I LIKEY" from the Subster. The Subster duffs his virtual hat to you Sir Patrick
Patrick Krolis: I feel like I just won the Oscars, getting a LIKEY from the Subster, I am tempted to write my whole acceptance speech here, I would like to thank Gillian for her make up and styling, Fausto for helping me out with the light stretching his arm to the max, getting the SB800 in the position I wanted, Lindsay for the patience of waiting since January for her shoot, which was only shot 3 days before she left, thank my mother and my father for making me....uhhh, I think I should stop here, going overboard. Thanks Subster.

LOL, no tears?
Patrick Krolis: LOL, that when I realized I was going overboard :d

A beautiful look to the shot.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Micheal, thank you...

You know what's so funny? Being able to be part of this shoot and the proud feeling that comes over me to see all the positive notes. This was one of the more relaxed shoots we had. The result of good teamwork. The mood was good and Lindsay was better! Your theory on the effect of the SB-800 came out perfect. Like the shadow on her face and the cracks n graffity on the mysterious wall.
I presume that this isn't the last we will see of The "Ghetto wall".
Patrick, i am looking forward for the next shoot.

ps: My version of Lindsay next week!
Patrick Krolis: Thanks for being part of it bro!! looking forward to your shot!!!

I know this is what you wanted to achieve but I would of prefered her a bit more lit...
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much, pls help me out here, always trying to understand how my visitors perceive the image. Do you mean the shadows on her side or the overall lightness of the image?

ChaCha 13 Aug 2007, 13:03

What an exceptionally intriguing photograph with many emotions being provoked in the viewer. Exceptionally well captured! Elize :o)
Patrick Krolis: you are definitely too generous with your words, I feel like I am up walking on the clouds, even have doubts if I can post something else that evokes such nice compliments :d these are putting the bar up high high grin

sk 13 Aug 2007, 19:12
everything is on point here, composition, the mood, the background, the subject, thumbs up
Patrick Krolis: thank you so much, can't describe the feeling when so much of the community thinks you got something well executed, thank you very much for your words. Don't know if I should post something else now :d

blackdog 13 Aug 2007, 22:19
Great image Patrick - perfect composition and lighting. I like the "edge" to the picture given by the ambiguity of the pose and the shadows on the model create an nice air of mystery.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very very much, I am very satisfied with your comment, you make me feel like I really accomplished something here, Thank you so much!!

Martin 13 Aug 2007, 22:21

deji77 15 Aug 2007, 02:37
reall like this one. much better than yesterdays IMHO.
Patrick Krolis: I do agree that this is a much better one than yesterdays, actually this was the original concept, I had in mind when shooting, yesterdays was just a sidetrack shot during the shoot, you try different angles, and different light, different treatment, but in the end you know what you intended and this is it smile

Zebigleb 15 Aug 2007, 12:40

Suzanne 19 Aug 2007, 04:52
Great shot, Patrick..this photo just begs to be in b&w..everything from the mood, the grittiness of the wall as does her body language and expression..wonderful work.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you so much Suzanne, I am really glad you "feel" the photograph as well :d

Rafael Chan 27 Aug 2007, 18:09
Like this shot very much...the lightning, the implications made by the text on the wall, BnW, moody lightning from the side, great shot.
And the Oscar goes to..? Patrick Krolis!!

i like this piece of art patrick...is this surinam??? could have fooled me..very good capturing the expression,lighting and especially the B&W does it for this shot...great going man
Patrick Krolis: Yes Edson this is Suriname!! Actually not to far from my house!! there is so much beautiful places in our direct surroundings, yet sometimes we don't see them, the challenge is to see and to isolate and to get the image you imagine from the location!!
