It is my pleasure to introduce you to Lexie. Unlike the other strangers I did not have to go anywhere to look for Lexie, she came to our home. Lexus, or Lexie for short works for an agency who provides personal care and she came to assist my wife. After meeting Lexie I immediately thought she would be an excellent candidate for the 100 strangers project so I described the project to her on a subsequent visit and she agreed to participate. Aside from her bright eyes and smile the first thing you notice about Lexie, which the picture unfortunately can not show, is her Cape Breton Island accent and her cheerful personality. Thank you Lexie for agreeing to help me with my project, we look forward to your future visits. When I see Lexie coming, I say to my wife, brace yourself honey, here comes Lixie because she comes in like a whirlwind. ..Observations:  With Lexie's portrait I could visualize what I thought she should look like to capture her cheerful personality and her bright eyes. I, however, had some difficulty capturing that look with the camera, but in the end I think I came close. On looking back on some of the shots, the lighting hurt some of them and in others I did not get the right pose or angle. Luckily, with my better portrait photos I have been fortunate that my subjects naturally related to the camera without much prompting from me. I need to learn more about directing my subjects to get the most effective shots...This picture is the 24th  portrait in my efforts to complete the100 strangers project to help improve my photography skills. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers on the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page http://www.flickr.com/groups/100strangers/ and on the 100 strangers web site http://www.100strangers.com/ . .
