Earlier this week I took photos of a beautiful lady. Mara is the oldest model I’ve taken photos of and we had a blast, since she is extremely charming, funny, and always in a good mood. In addition, she is pretty fast – when I got to the location she had already put her makeup on and organised all the clothes she was going to wear.
She wanted the photos to be quite simple, no props or too much makeup…also she didn’t ask me to photoshop her wrinkles out – which was so cool because i do hate seeing people transformed into plastic dolls in photos. That just destroys all the essence of photography, in my opinion. Wrinkles are something beautiful that you gain in the course of your life. Every single line tells a story, either good or bad, and these are the episodes that make you grow as a precious human being.
