photoblog image Gloria

Model Credit: gloriadubois from www.bodynsoulmodels.com

 Here is Gloria again, shot on the same day at Nw Amsterdam, this is one of the pictures she choose herself and is using on her Facebook profile.

Yesterday I was supposed to celebrate my 1 year on Shutterchance, I have been awfully busy shooting however, with no time for a special post. So there is  special symbolism in having Gloria on the first post of my second year, she was my first post here on December 12, 2006. And it was the start of a special photographic journey for me, and in many ways a very special year.I am posting Gloria again. May my second year on Shutterchance bring me even more special things, especially a very good photographic career.

I want to thank all of you for the great support, the comments, the friendship, this is by far the most special photo blogging community on the internet  A special thanks to the Shutterchance team, to my wife who supports me so much in my quest for a great photographic career, all the people who modeled, assisted, did make-up and made this possible, and of course to Gloria for the symbolism.

DrAW! from Nigeria 13 Dec 2007, 17:56
hey congrats patrick!
beautiful shot
the only flaw i can point out today, is some posterisation on the blue wall on the left
and yes i'm ashamed...you post a beautiful lady, and i'm noticing a wall grin
cheers man
Patrick Krolis: Cheers Doc, Thank you ver well for the compliment and the comment. I am glad you pointed out the posterization, I'll improve my Lightroom export settings, been compressing a bit too aggressively it seems, or it is a flaw in the new Lightroom 1.3.

Fausto 13 Dec 2007, 17:59

That's a damn good portrait, Patrick. I don't know how your cameras don't melt from all the hotness that comes from these girls.
smile Z
Patrick Krolis: Hey V, now you got me worried, the other day I noticed after a shoot that a part of my lens hood was missing, you know like when you put a piece of plastic to close to the fire, until now I didn't realize what had happened...wink

Naomi Krolis 14 Dec 2007, 19:35
Hey love,

You are great and congratulations( I am a bit late).
And I am so PROUD off you.
Reading all the comments here makes me even prouder.
Missing you all the hours during the several shoots are worth every minute and second.

Hope the next year may bring you lots of pictures and shoots off your choice. And I think you should start with Gloria.

Love you,
Your supporting wife
Patrick Krolis: thank you love...
