Q: What is the best lens for theater photography?

A: Do you know?

This is Esperanza ("hope" in spanish). Besides the fact that this is one of the coolest names that exists, Esperanza helps us once a week to make everything smoother, giving the house an "arregladita".

I haven't done much portrait work, but I decided to use this photo challenge as an excuse to take a photo of here.

She comes from a very humble background, much like the women in the photo the background and I'm sure this was the first time that a professional asked to take her picture.
