Like it better than the previous one. Nice picture.
Patrick Krolis: yes Consuela, this is my favorite one from the shoot, when I went through the shoot, this was the one that stood out for me. It had bot the feeling and the look I was trying to accompish.

Michael Rawluk 22 Jan 2008, 05:32
I really like having the light hitting her back. Gorgeous.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Michael, I tried to keep the focus on the dress by lighting it like this, while adding a touch of mystery by keeping her face out of the light.

Tracy from Stoke on Trent UK 22 Jan 2008, 07:45

majestic!.... mal
Patrick Krolis: thank you Mal

Ellie from Hants, UK 22 Jan 2008, 23:47
The only thing I'd pick up on is the position in the frame. Ages ago I was told to give animals a space to look/move into, which meant having them slightly off to one side of centre or on a third. I think that might work here too.

I think it's a lovely pose.
Patrick Krolis: Thank you very much Ellie, in this case I deliberatly choose the deadcenter as to force the readers attention to the model and her dress. you should not be wondering "what is she looking at"

José-Angel from Catalonia 23 Jan 2008, 00:01
Fine and elegant. Well done!
Patrick Krolis: Gracias Jose-Angel!!!

Nig from Gym 24 Jan 2008, 07:57

Aussie from Brisbane 25 Jan 2008, 23:34
Nice and elegant looking shot.
Patrick Krolis: thank you very much Aussie, I am back

Jewlya from United States 27 Jan 2008, 17:32
White on white is such a tough thing. I like how you approached it with the light, shadows, and her dark face as the contrast.
Patrick Krolis: White on White is indeed not easy, but by making sure you get differnt lighting intensities on the different whites, it all becomes different shades of grey. By having the model closer to the lights, she is whiter than the backgroudn which is a few feet behind her. On the other side I chose not to fill in to strong so there the light on the backgron from the same mainlight on the left is stronger than on the right side of the model.
Again it is all about the light, white on white, diferent light, many shades of grey!! smile

PS shot in a "white" studio environment, on main light on the left, all the other light is bounced by the walls and the ceiling.

patrick on top form as usual

was the dead-center positioning done on purpose?
Patrick Krolis: Hey Doc, I am back, thanks for the compliment. The deadcenter positioning was done on purpose, I wanted to recreate the feel of some of the vogue pages I saw. smile
