Sofia Magdalena

Sofia Magdalena

Inspired by Lady Gaga


Sofia Magdalena was easy to spot. And fun to talk with. She is very girly, sometimes talks with a high pitched voice, and likes everything pink. She was very easy to photograph, and even suggested that we would meet again in a few weeks time when she had bleached her teeth and received her new pink eyeglasses! Sofia Magdalena is a hair dresser, but hasn't done the board certified test yet. At the moment she is attending a beauty school. I asked her if she had any fun hobbies. She told me that her number one hobby is her boyfriend (although he can be a bit grumpy sometimes). She might even marry him. I asked her about the way she dressed and she said she was very inspired by Lady Gaga. She figured they had the same body shape. After taking a few photos she gave me some grapes and we said goodbye.

The baby pacifier urns me off, but otherwise she is an attractive woman and loves to be photographed. You have some good ones here.

Now that's funny. Actually, the top one is quite brilliant - perfect composition, great model (and accessory) and beautiful light.

I don't know whether it's the Scandinavian confidence and openness, or you're just very good at putting people at ease, but I find it difficult to imagine getting the same results in England. Great shots.

There are many English photographers in the 100 Strangers group at flickr Alan. You should give that project a go. The worst thing that can happen if you ask someone for a portrait is a no thanks. And that happens to me every now and then.
