Needless to say that Beata was in no shortage of compliments from her court photographer. Her happy smile after a compliment was most rewarding. Life as a portrait photographer of ladies in glasses involves a lot of logistics and hard work but a happy smile can do miracles. Conflicting opinions are held by freelance and professional models about smiling portraits. Some models avoid portraits with a smile whilst others regard it as an integral part of who they are, backstage but also during a photo shoot. I always explain to the models that a photo shoot as "Lady behind crystal veil" is a documentary rather than a search for that one perfect capture. If it's there, than fine, but in my view it's only a byproduct within a greater concept.
