Some of the people who's photo I take are self conscience for some reason or another. Their hair is a wreck... No makeup... Not dressed to impress... blah blah blah. Some of the best photos I've taken, the subject has not had a hair and makeup session.
After I showed this beautiful woman her photo, she said it looks horrible. I told her she looks beautiful. (Am I the only one who see's beauty in this photo?) She said, "... my freckles." I told her they are beautiful. I don't know what her response was. I turned to look at her photo on the computer display. But my ears heard, a subtle but clear lightening of her voice... ahhh the sound of gentle approval.
