This series of Bente was done on one of my first trips to the Czech Republic. She was one of the beginners - young and not quite sure of herself, but very happy to be there. She has an impish little smile that says she's having just as much fun as you'll have looking at her. I've purposely left these relatively natural and unretouched, which with the dim natural light gives the impression of casual snapshots, as opposed to the standard strobe look. So you'll see a few natural scars, and some blurred and grainy shots - think of them as pics you might take of a girlfriend in a hotel room.
