Photographer's Note

Inside the chapel in a H'mong village, I have to contend with the very low amount of light. However, the enthusiasm and spirit of the villagers there, happy that we came to visit them and attend the holy mass with them, lit up the whole place.

I took a picture of this woman who, upon asking her, is only 34 years old. She's a beauty. She has the look of power and determination. When I asked her if I could take her picture, she wilingly obliged. She didn't bat an eyelas for almst a minute. I am truly grateful.

(auto-adjustments, use shadow/highlight to make it brighter. I do keep the lement of low lighting though for a more solemn effect.)
