1/100 - Madeleine
This is Madeleine who I met on the street in Ottawa. She is an art student taking a degree in fine art in university. I was walking back to the office after picking up a gift for a Christmas gift exchange with my family when I saw her. The first thing I noticed was her red hair and when we both arrived at a stop light, I gathered my courage to ask her if she would mind if I took her portrait. She graciously agreed and stood where I asked her to for the photo. I was nervous about asking her as I've been walking around with my camera for the past couple of weeks, but I was determined to photograph someone before Christmas. I am really pleased with how this photo turned out. She looks great and has really striking eyes - the perfect subject for stranger #1.
