The Five Faces of Zsofia


One last photo collage from the SC BBQ meet-up last Saturday!
Jide Alakija
was not able to make the gathering but this is his friend, Zsofia, who did.  She's also a friend of our newcomer SCer, Susan (darkred), both of whom are originally from Hungary, now living in London.

One thing we all noticed is that we photographers really don't like having our pictures taken.  Imagine that!  I don't know if Zsofia is a photographer but you would have thought she was the worst of the lot for having her photo taken!

But I snapped away anyway and dropped my jaw when I saw these faces on the big screen.
I wish she had her own SC blog so that you could go and say HI to her!


[Tomorrow I fly from Amsterdam back to Atlanta.]

My Zsofia! ♥
Love the first and the last picture of her. Her smile is attractive and overtaking. Im glad you captured her even thought she hates being in focus (literally) smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Susan...your Zsofia. She is much more photogenic than she lets on! I just wish I had taken as many shots of YOU. Thanks.
Lovely set of very natural shots. All the best, Dave.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Dave.
The many faces of Zsofia, reminds us of the one we did a few weeks back http://suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Zsofia_/

She is gradually becoming famous grin
Ginnie Hart: Oh my. She is much more photogenic than she lets on, isn't she, Suby. I had no idea you did something similar. Great minds and all. grin

Yes, she's becoming quite famous. smile
Look at you, colred borders, collage, text, what ever next ? Love Gin. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now if I can just figure out how to do the black background!!! Thanks, Bro.

That is a lively series of expressions and a good idea to present them like this.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. She's really a natural!
Very well presented Ginnie. Im sure she will like this. Whats she doing with the Jide dude.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I have no idea what the connection is with Jide. Maybe someone will lt us know???

BTW, please tell me how you did YOUR collage today with the black background! Did you use PS?

Lovely montage, Ginnie. The sequence of headshots almost "reads" like a short movie.
Ginnie Hart: It WAS like a short movie for me, Ray. Snap, snap, snap. One after the other. And she just sat there and was as natural as could be...in spite of all her earlier protestations! smile Thanks for your kind support.

Your e-Coffee Table Book today is just incredible!
Zsofia could be the younger sister of a friend of mine. Right now on my screen all I can see is the bottom third of each portrait. Even that little bit is still expressive. Great shots Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: An amazing face, Karen, even the bottom third! Thanks.
I like the range of expression. I'm impressed your model was able to give such a range without seeming fake in any of them. Very well captured and framed.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Jewlya! Totally. Thanks.

Have a safe flight back Ginnie. I know you had an awesome time smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Etomi. I always have a great time here in Amsterdam and am ready to come back after a couple weeks at home. This really has become my second home!
Pretty pictures and presentation of Zsofia. The first and last one is really pretty!
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Jose. And thanks for your support.

This series of zsofia does remind me of a film strip. Very cute, and well done!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, dear sis!

I like natural expressions of people, and this is a natural face of a young woman.
I hope you come fit as a fiddle back to Amsterdam in order to take some more photos from this exciting town!
Ginnie Hart: Very natural indeed, Philine. That's what I liked about her face.

And yes, I always seem to come back with lots of life and anticipation. I love my second home! Thanks.

Great layout and so is the series of Zsofia that you created - the order that you have chosen for these pictures.

That thing about photographers who don't like their pictures taken - true, true smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, so true, Louis. And I'm one of them. smile

Thank you kindly for your encouragement. And thanks to you, I've figured out how to do this with a black background! So simple once you know what to do!
nice portrait serie...... have a good weekend
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chantal. The same to you.

Hi Ginnie!!!

How are you?

I was so lovely to meet you. The BBQ was a special event wouldn't you agree?

O! love the pic too!! Sofia is a real beauty. Have enjoyed the series of collages as well.

take good care care of you!
Ginnie Hart: It was just wonderful to meet you as well, Moi Moi. Thank you again for driving me to the airport on Sunday. You are such a sweetie...and I think I need to talk to you! smile

So now we need to get you out taking more pics? grin

GOSH! she must have been soooooo uncomfortable. Poor Zsofia sadsad
hehehehe...got one of her that I too will put up gringrin
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Deji, after she first protested, she never complained again. I think she may be a model after all. smile

Yet another master piece, Zsofia looks a happy go lucky kind of person. Have a safe flight and have a wonderful weekend. Take care. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! You know how to make me feel good, Tracy. grin

Thanks for your safe-flight wishes. You have a great weekend as well.
Yay.... great to meet them all. Feels like movie frames.
Have a good weekend .
Ginnie Hart: If I had known how to make the movie reel frame, Gale, I would have done it! Still learning as I go. In fact, Louis told me how to do this with a black background today, so things keep moving up in the world. smile

Nice potraits Ginnie - yes I'm not one for having my photo taken either!!! Mike
Ginnie Hart: HA! We photographers are a sorry lot when it comes to that! smile Thanks, Mike.
Hi Ginnie,
Just welldone, I like it that it is a serie of more small portraits, this way you can compare one to the other.

I made also photo's of you yesterday, You know....Shall I send yours to you by your email?(the one's I made yesterday) I crop them Jpeg,You might like them, Please do you may send mine? You made me curious. ONLY the one you like of yourself I might publice, but I won't if you don't like it...

Have a good journey tomorrow.

JoAnn smile
Ginnie Hart: Didn't you get my e-mail, JoAnn? I sent 8 pics to you!!! All resized. And yes, I'd love to see what you have of me. smile

Safe journey Ginnie, you portrait talents have been hidden! You did a fine job on these sets, well done. Regards, Chris
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for your gracious support and vote of confidence, Chris. That means a lot to me.
Lovely girl and beautiful shots of her
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Aussie!
Again a good job putting together a collage....what I find difficult is deciding where to put each pic....I might would have altered some of this but I'm not sure.....for me it's a matter of trying and choose the combo that looks the best, not easy to say without trying smile
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Aksel. Trust me--arranging was the most difficult part of this. But when I saw the progression of thoughtfulness to the big smile, it make sense. Anyway, thanks for your input, as always!

Hi Ginnie,
just dropped by to say hello. Looks like you guys were having a great time at the BBQ.
Seeing your pictures really makes me wanna come back but I guess I still need some time.
Hope you're doing fine!
Warmest wishes, Julia smile
Ginnie Hart: WELCOME BACK, Julia. I've missed you. Good to see you again. I do hope you're doing well and living life to the full! You'll come back with a bang when you are ready! I trust it/you. smile Thank you so much for popping in to say Hello.
Goodness she's beautiful! Why woud sh want to shy away from the camera?
Ginnie Hart: Exactly my sentiment, David!!!
Nice collage again ! Great to meet her !!

Zsofia looks like she's a very nice person with a good sense of humor! Good shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I didn't actually spend any time top speak of with her, Kay, which is so weird. I spent more time with Susan but have only 2 pics to show for it! Funny how that is. Thanks.
