Make-up: Gillian Calor
Assistance Fausto Fraser

This is the last in the Big Cat Series I'll be posting. You know when you enter the CAGE of a Big Cat it can be a gruesome end of your wanderings. Yet for some it is the ultimate challenge, Next time, I'll play it safe and photograph my Big Cats on the catwalk. Watch this blog in May!!

lovely lighting
beautiful model and expression

if i didn't know better, i'd've said the background was 'distracting'
Patrick Krolis: yeah you are right, LOL but then again we agree it is information Doc!! :d Thank you so much!!

Jewlya from United States 24 Apr 2008, 04:21
Usually I agree with DrAW's comments, but in this case, I rather like the background. It gives her context and suggests a bit about who she is.
Patrick Krolis: I think the Doc liked it too, guess it was more of an inside joke about a photo he posted earlier wink and of course I do agree with you, the background gives context here, thank you so much!!

E Etomi from Romania 24 Apr 2008, 05:40
I agree with Jewlya, it makes the shot a little more interesting.
Patrick Krolis: Thanks you so much, I love the background myself too smile

Lighting on the face is a bit dark but she's got attitude
Patrick Krolis: Yip the face is a bit dark, but it adds to the attitude don't you agree? it's about the whole package, and if attitude is what you see, then i got it right wink, thank you so much!!

Patrick Krolis: oh yes lot's more to come dear, and happy birthday to you!!!

Martin from United States 24 Apr 2008, 18:40
Great venue, a pose that fits it perfectly, some color to sort it all out, definitely a very appealing shot. It may be worth experimenting with more even lighting on the model. Especially her face could probably use a small luminance boost. Nevertheless, this is excellent work, Patrick!
Patrick Krolis: thank you so much Martin!!

Me gustan las fotos de chicas en estos ambientes decadentes. Aquí, creo que ha fallado la iluminación!
Patrick Krolis: la iluminacion es como es, yo creio que ajuda criar el ambiente wink
