Proms are everywhere part 2

This is another design I did in fotofusion. I used a picture of Gianna's flowers as a background to the design and placed the three images on top. Notice how the borders are based on the color of her dress. Try this technique in your design software of choice. It makes a very nice design and adds a nice touch to the finished product.

Proms are everywhere!

I had a great time shooting the images for Gianna and her friends.  The first design is a combination of three images I took on her parents' front porch.  They set up a very nice arch with flowers and greens which made a beautiful frame for the picture.  I used both the 17-50 f/2.8 lens and the 70-200 f.2.8 to capture all the images for the night.  It was an overcast day [which eliminated any harsh shadows] and I used a flash and diffuser to add light to the image.  I kept the top and bottom part of the image 'darker' to direct the attention to Gianna.
The second image is a shot of all the couples.  I used the 17-50 f/2.8 set to f/22 and a flash to light their faces. 
All the designs were done in fotofusion [which is an amazing piece of software].  I highly recommend it!  Email me if you want to chat about it.
