photoblog image Big Cats
Model Credit: Gloria Dubois from www.bodynsoulmodels.com
Model Representation: Doré Models
Make-up: Gillian Calor
Assistance Fausto Fraser

Like Household Kittens, Big Cats love to play, Hide and Seek is one of the favorite games, using their camouflage colors to their benefit. Lucky the photographer who is prepared and captures the moment for eternity. The colors of the Lioness blend well in with the surroundings here.

I'm not sure about this one. The colours actually don't blend in with the surroundings in my opinion. I like the concept and it'd be a winner with a bit more work
Patrick Krolis: Respect Stan :d

Okay here goes, NO LIKEY, know you have a theme going here for these shots, but does this convey that theme to us or more importantly, if this was a theme given to you by a magazine editor, would this pass the muster? NO.

The pose is just not graceful enough, the crossed legs don't work, the sunglasses in hand, NO. Poses for theme shots like these is almost a science, not only for the photographer, but for the model and all those involved in the shoot. Now I bet you must have a better image in this same setting that best conveys the theme.

So always ask yourself, is this good enough for a magazine? Then open a few magazine and compare. Always works for us smile
Patrick Krolis: I was already getting worried that you stopped being critical at some point, the last few comments from you were very much in awe gringrin

now on a more serious note, while I do agree on the magazine suggestion and frequently apply that method too, there remains the question, when one's work is apart enough, differnt, new, fresh, or just interesting enough to get noticed.

and on a less serious note, we need to give the people something to talk about don't we!!

Have a great week guys!!!!

Me gusta el exceso de saturación en los colores, a pesar de que hay algunas zonas "quemadas"
