It is my pleasure to introduce you to Nellie.  I met Nellie at the "Photographing Consciously" course being provided by Stefan (Stranger # 3 who is no longer a stranger) She, like me, is trying to improve her photographic skills and after taking some shots in the class with her to experiment with depth of field, I thought I had one which might be used for the 100 strangers project. I explained the project to Nellie and after considering it for a while, she consented to let me use her photo for the project.  Nellie is from Romania, is a very cheerful and energetic person who leads a busy life bringing up her two children and keeping up with her friends. She describes herself as a people person who really enjoys her many friends.  Thank you, Nellie, for helping me with my project. I look forward to improving my photographic skills with you. ..Observations:  The photo was taken in a fairly dimly lit area with my 50 mm lens set at 1.8 to minimize distractions in the background. ..This picture is the 19th 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 www.flickr.com/groups/100strangers/ and on the 100 strangers web site www.100strangers.com/ . .
