[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On February 29, 2008, while crossing the Scotia Sea, Christoph Höllger performed a reading of the text "My name is Shackleton" in English, all dressed up as an Antarctic Explorer from the early 1900.

This is his portrait. Well done Christoph

PP was only TL posting routine. Workshop has the B&W version.

Durante a travessia do Mar da Scotia, em 29 de fevereiro de 2008, Christoph Höllger fez uma performance de leitura do texto "My name is Shackleton" , todo vistido a rigor como um explorar do inicio dos anos 1900.

Aproveitei a oportunidade do holofote direcional para fazer umas fotos da silueta, apesar da grande dificuldade de se mover ao redor sem estragar a performance!

O workshop tras a versão P&B.

Abraço a todos.

Wellington

Hi Wellington

I like the superb backlighting on the silhouetted, profiled, human figure, in the fg. Good sharpness, lighting, & graphism. Tfs!

This is a wonderfully worked shot. It took me a little while to find Christoph among the lights but that is the delight of the photo - as you look he emerges out of the dark.
I dabbled with a minimalist approach to this shot in a WS but do not suggest it improves on the original - I post it just for fun.

Olá Wellington,
Magnífica experiência (eu tiraria a classificação como de humor, pois não é). Gostei muito da observação de tezza quando diz que a imagem vai sugindo gradativamente quando os olhos vão se acostumando. Isso é grande arte.
Parabéns, muitos,
Raimundo

Hello Wellington,

This is extremely good shot with low lightness.

Best regards,

O controle da luz, com o halo formado ao redor do homem ficou excelente. Mesmo pegando de frente os refletores, a luz não estourou.
Foto muito criativa, parabéns.
