photoblog image Kimberly

Model Credit: mimi from www.bodynsoulmodels.com

I have had several shoots with my friend Kimberly over the last year, yesterday I put up the first photo of one of these shoots, today I am posting material from a shoot in October. Kimberly is fantastic in front of the camera and yesterday's commenters noted that as well.

In this shoot we did about 400 shots, and Kimberly had a hard time selecting her preferred shot, this was one of the first she selected, from over 400 it went to 140 down to 22. I choose this shot to be featured here on Shutter...

Enjoy her from up close and personal today...

She's gorgeous, Patrick, and I can see why you narrowed it down to this. Your processing is absolutely perfect, IMHO!
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Ginnie, very much...

Stan from United States 29 Nov 2007, 05:03
I agree with Ginnie and would like to add that I'm more impressed with the lighting than the processing
Patrick Krolis: Compliments about my lightnig are my absolute favorites :d thank you so much

Zebigleb from France 29 Nov 2007, 07:26

gorgeous shot Mr K. mal
Patrick Krolis: thank you Mr Smart, glad you agree that I don't have to take up the self portrait challenge wink

I am applying for an apprenticeship under you. You work is top class. lighting, DOF, composition, makeup all top of the line.
Patrick Krolis: Hey Hey, not so fast, you are more than welcome, actually I am trying my first workshop this sunday :d, but you have some serious stuff going on as well smile Thanks so much for the compliment, I have to pass on one compliment though, the make up, most of the time Gillin Calor a friend and fantastic make-up artist does the magic, but sometimes like in this case here, Kim did her make-up all by herself, I guess it speaks for the woman... wink

Very very nice picture!!!!!!

Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much MP.

Very special shot - excellent. I am not really into these model shots, my wife arrange for contracts on anyone I try to use as a model and she won't sit. So I can't say anything about Kim except she looks seriously good.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Louis, I believe each one is fortunate to have the subjects around and near to photograph to his liking smile even though we sometimes wish to photograph other subjects. Actually this is the third phase in my photography when I started out 30 years ago. And yes I admit, I fully enjoy it, but when I think of my previous passions, I think I enjoyed them equally at that time. Architecture, landscapes, nature where my first subjects, my second phase was poverty and social inequality, now I only want to shoot beautiful people. Yes I do believe everybody is beautiful, I just love to bring that beauty out and showcase it in my photography. And then sometimes, you just have a model like Kim. Who in your words, looks seriously good smile

Silviu Lipovan 4 Dec 2007, 22:22
Nice shot Patrick. I like the soft light and the texture it reveals in the skin. The necklace is also a nice touch.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Silviu, the neckalce was courtesy of the model herself, I do agree it adds a beatiful touch to the photograph

Sarina Gitoroemakso from Amsterdam 5 Dec 2007, 13:58
very nice patrick....smile did u use photoshop for the softness of this picture? i'm trying to understand how this is done.
Patrick Krolis: Hey Sarina, yes a little little bit of softening is used, actually it was not really necessary as Kimberly's skin was very smooth already, but I wanted to achieve a certain feel too it
