No time to hide

An American photographer, Irving Penn, once said that what people hide behind their masks during a photographic session is usually more interesting than they themselves believe. So Irving Penn worked with his models slowly and kindly, patiently coaxing out their inner qualities and complexities and creating amazing portraits in the process. 

But I do not have the same luxury of time, so I rush my models to open up as soon as I look at them through my lens.
