Model Credit: anonymous from www.bodynsoulmodels.com

I haven't done Fine Art in a while, unitl a week or two ago, a model walked into my studio. I had almost already givin up on ever shooting her again, since we had an appointment that was booked and cancelled more times than I can recount.

So there were we on a hectic Saturday afernoon, we had one hour to shoot since she had a next appointment, immeadiately thereafter. When the shoot was done I downloaded the images and within 5 minutes I had choosen my favorite shot and pp-ed it to my liking,

Today I share her with the world.

Your good eye never fails you Partick.
Patrick Krolis: Such sweet words, you are too kind Consuela, thank you very much

I like how she fills the frame and the mysteriously large hand that seems to be more of a focal point that the mask. Unusual in a good way!
Patrick Krolis: Thank you so much Martin, indeed the hand and the mask, gives the eye a reason for traveling

Love the mystery in this shot Patrick. I am pleased she kept this appointment and you shared it with ussmile
Patrick Krolis: thanks Tracy, I would love to use real venetian masks in one shoot one day, but will have to wait to get those first smile

Love the shot, love the PP, love the lighting, a little disturbed about the hand, but not sure, maybe it will grow on us, but still love the shot grin
Patrick Krolis: yeah the hand, could have burned it a bit, but then in the end I liked the movement it provides, let it grow, let it grow, let it glow...

very nice Patrick.
How do you think a tighter crop excluding the white bottom would look?
Patrick Krolis: been thinking about the white part yes, actually I think she should have done the picture without it, maybe a crop should work...

This certainly has a WOW- factor to it smile

You told me about the hand but in my opinion the hand out of proportion doesn't disturb the image but contributes to it because it makes me think of a claw and with feathers it all adds up.... About the white cloth, simply try changing the color and post it If it makes the image even stronger, go for it!

Very well done Patrick!
And of course my compliments to the model wink
Patrick Krolis: Thanks pow, you should certainly work with her too, she has that model magic!! you can find her on www.bodynsoulmodels.com
