I loved Raisa, she had the most beautiful face but was very shy about having her photo taken. She didn't want a close up but then modelled one of her hats. Unfortunatley I was concentrating on her face and didn't see the pole growing out of her head. Not sure I could have done a lot about it, it was quite a confined space and its in all the shots. I'm not yet confident enough to move people around a lot and I think she would have been uncomfortable if I'd tried. I think this is the best shot but its a little washed out, I think the flash fired. I also didn't realise I'd focussed on the hat rather than her face, though I'm sure she'd be quite happy with that as she was really tossing her head around showing it off.
