Doing the second half of the photo shoot in strong prescription glasses is a challenge and an experiment for all models. Not only for the obvious reason that such glasses only create a massive blur for most models but also because the composition of the model's face is changed in a subtle way. Here Simona's lovely eyes look some 12% smaller than they look through her own glasses with a prescription just below minus two. As a result, her lips seem magnified and so their expression is crucial for a good portrait. Simona is blessed with beautiful, full lips so the contrast with her eyes seems even more extreme. On the positive side, the blue and pink frame is an eye catcher in its own right and the intense look in Simona's beautiful eyes does the rest. Great!
