I knew she would not be too into this idea since she is generally very camera shy but she knew her time in Ghana was limited and there are a lot of people at home who are curious about her life over there so she agreed to let me document her for ten days.
Her job is pretty hectic and had been more stressful these past few months so when I arrived we headed to the coast for some beach time. I started taking pictures right away and it was great to see her completely unwind once she got away from the city and settled in on the coast. I think it came across pretty well in the pictures, here are the five I presented to my class:
The first two are on work calls:My class really thought she looked relaxed in front of the camera, like she wasn't even aware that it was there. I had a great time with the assignment and really learned a lot about what makes for an interesting portrait or group of portraits, thanks to Kelly for helping me on this!
