Stranger 76/100 - Lera [#Explored 1/11/2015]

As soon as Mario and I managed to find each other in the crowded center of Milan, we walked around looking for a good spot: I think Mario did see the beautiful Lera and Anastasia and I did go and approach them: at first they both were ok with posing, but a bit surprised and uncomfortable, but a few shots later they both enjoyed the experience and helped us with strong expressions. If I recall correctly, Mario suggested to take advantage of the cigarette and use it for the frame and, at some point I think Mario also helped with the reflector.

It took me a while to get proper control of the situation: thankfully Lera is an experienced model and was really great and helpful!

I got quite a few good shots, but I think the gaze in this one is pretty strong.

 

I had the chance to have a talk both with Lera and Anastasia and we spoke about their experience in Italy and about the beautiful Russia: Anastasia suggested I should go and see Moscow.

 

This definitely was a good start for a great day with Mario!

 

Thank you so much Lera: it was really fun taking pictures of you and wish you all the best!!!
