    Typical of the Africans – may have few material possessions but they are always ready with a genuine friendly smile.
    On a photographic note – would a fill flash bring out the darker areas of face or would it spoil the contrast of the smile?

      I did actually try a shot with flash right after this one. But it seemed to take the character out of the shot! I’ve rarely had success using flash when shooting portraits!
