after by suzi9mm after by suzi9mm
this is from a series of pics i took of my friend who is a stripper, he needed some promo shots, like [link] and [link] this i took for myself... the idea is kinda "after work".

he had to occasionally rest a second between shots and at one of those occasions i saw this perfect composition...:D (Big Grin) i like this a lot more than the actual promo's, it's got that certain mood...tired, dejected... i'm NOT trying to say "stripping is bad and sad", but i like what this implies. movies often have these scenes don't they? and the door probably bothers someone, but not me, it just adds to the idea of after the customer left...

i just darkened it a bit and maybe added contrast, but no cropping or such work.

he is Sauli.

I often find that some of my better images of models is when they are "relaxing" and I tell them to freeze.

I've been looking through your Gallery for hour now!
Your work is beautiful...shocking sometimes...but always beautiful....
This was on the last page in your store and it really caught my eye...i dunno whether it was cause it was a different colour or what but it just stood out...I love the spontaniety (sp?) in this picture.
Keep up the amazing work!

The feel of pain you get from looking at this picture is amazing....he looks so sad and degrated.....very blue....

I would have to say this is the picture in your gallery that has given me my first reason to going to continue looking but this is the best i have seen yet...or maybe im not looking to hard.....ither way you decide.....

Great photo...

wolfpooka Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2003
this is very powerful. the composition is wonderful and the coloration is perfect for the mood. the part that really struck me was how you can see a door in the corner. i think that really adds to the sadness here. like there is an exit, but he is stuck in this lifestyle. and yeah, it doesn't say to me that stripping is bad. anyway, great shot. sometimes the best stuff comes out of the unplanned. candid portraits are often the best ones.

The emotion just emanates from the photo - it's perfect. Colour is great, as is his position.

hmm. i dont normally comment on your photos as when i see a photo with 50+ comments i think 'can she really take them all in?' so i just view them. anyway, thought id say i love most of your shots, including this one. lovely lighting and blue makes it stand out so much from your others. you need to do more male photos i think! keep it up! x
myownclouds Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003
I like ur comment, it adds a lot 2 the pic ;-) (Wink)
But also, I don't see pain in him...
But what I see, is all that I wish noone has to live through.
No matter what they say.

this is the best picture in the ...stripper(?)series...
sexypenguin Featured By Owner May 2, 2003
the mood is fantastic, as well as the reflection. the simplicity makes this beautiful, as well as the gorgeous model. very very well done. it's a fav+ Black Rose
myheadphones Featured By Owner May 1, 2003
i dont really care for the extreme blue
i think its reflection is very cool

nipple rings are always a nice touch
but i dont really know if that is supposed to lend any help to your picture
the lighting throws me off
im so focused in on the shoulder

its a very blinding blue
is that why he is looking away?
isky Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2003
this is definitely my favorite of the three - i love the pose and the reflection. the blue light on all of these is wonderful!
snottyangst Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2003

The blue lighting.....the emotion.

It allows us the viewer. to see another side of life. This is what you photos always do for me.

Thank you.
