All good things must come to an end.... This highly expressive portrait marks the end of this remarkable photo shoot with an experienced, beautiful freelance model. Colleen is the 51st Lady behind Crystal Veil.
A word of thanks goes to Richard, manager of the Porter House Inn for his kind permission to use the terrace for this and the up coming next photo shoot.
I wish to pay a big compliment to Colleen for her apparently effortless way of posing in no less than 45 pairs of glasses. It really all went like clock work. There was never any strain. What struck me were the subtle changes in her posing and the superb, credible eye contact, even in glasses that only created a massive blur.
Colleen, you are a young lady with many talents. An experienced model who knows all the tricks of the trade but also a beauty queen and a singer. I was amazed by your rendering of Anastacia's very first hit, "I'm outta love". Not every singer is given to that.
During the photo shoot, I offered you to see the photos on the display of the camera. Models are always eager to see the results on the display but you said that you are highly critical about your portraits so we left it at that. Needless to say, I hope that at least some of the portraits in this documentary are to your liking. You did a splendid job. I wish you a lot of success with your future career.
