31 Days of Head Shots #21 Anna Paola

by Lucky Red Hen on October 21, 2012

I am a reeeally lucky girl (fitting that’s my nickname, eh?) This is model Anna Paola in Mexico at the Jose Villa Workshop. Sometimes it is hard for me to accept compliments about my photos from Mexico, because it really felt like the photos took themselves. The entire experience was kind of other worldly esque. Huh. Reading that makes me sound crazy. I am a little, I suppose.

Remember my first 31 Days of Head Shots post? This image of Anna Paola sitting in the window seat of a 400+ year old Mexican hacienda  is one of my other all-time favorites.

I am proud to say that I envisioned this pose and composition then was able to convey my wishes to my non-English-speaking model in gestures, motions, and mimicking. Trust me, she’s definitely a professional model if she could translate my irksome mimicking and lack of Spanish explaining into the beauty you see above. Even Jose pointed out how proud he was of me for being able to create the shot all on my own (instead of just shooting someone else’s set-up).

I love that Jose Villa.
