Thank You Note for A Young Girl Anna

IMG_3712_M4Some say that life is a learning process. Parents, teachers, friends and mentors facilitate in developing mental faculties. But sometimes unknown people help us to learn. At a photography lesson, Anna, a young girl volunteered to model for keen students. While the teacher talked about built in & external flash, soft & diffused light, background hiding and shadows; the young girl taught students another lesson. Her lesson - maintain patience and unconditional help. She modeled for around two hours while several budding photographers threw flash and clicked camera from various angles. Her smile never vanished and not even once she refused to move around.

Anna, we thank you for being an excellent sport. You are not just a photo shoot model. You are a role model for patience, politeness and friendliness.

(For photo enthusiasts: For the picture, used F/5.6, exposure time 1/20, ISO200 and Photoshop to change background)

Angelic!

I too thought it was about Anna Hazare! But you are right - patiently standing in front of cameras is quite difficult. When I was young, I used to cry for a long time before going to a Photo Shop :)

If only I phoyographed as well - I tend to blink just as the flash goes and am always left with red rat eyes. I'm sure Anna appreciates your kind and thoughtful comments.

wow...we all do need her for tips on patience:-)
and if one's as pretty as that, I guess a bit of being shot, becomes a pleasure;)

It is true a model has to be extremely patient,she/he has to be in that position for a long time without showing her/his irritation, and keep smiling, and look confident too.
This girl really looks very sweet, pretty and friendly too.

I love the effect of light on this picture. When I read the heading, I thought it was a post on Anna Hazare but was delightfully surprised to find a sweet smiling girl instead.

What was the background for this photo? It would be great if you have shared the original photo here… Anyway, I think Anna's cheerful personality helps her teach without any difficulties! The people she teaches to love to hear from her because of that smile she shows all the time. She's a great inspiration!
