Prom nite shots with some processing special effects. Comments and

suggestions most welcome. I'm not really a portrait photographer… took

these of granddaughter and friends in a crowd of parents with cameras. I

was using 70-200 zoom and high ISO (I was on crutches so mobility was

significantly impacted). My strategy was to pick a spot away from the

crowd and get a different angle. As a result, the subnets were not looking

directly at me. Thoughts on this? Defective strategy? Better way to handle

the situation? thanks for any comments.

Maybe sepia would be more persuasive as vintage but there is a reason why not sepia, it's he color of the artificial light and the nice reddish wall! I like it very much Sandra!


Best regards

I think the fact that they are not looking directly at the camera is an added bonus, the shot doesn't look overly manipulated or set up this way. 

I also like the processing, it's certainly different, though I'd love to see this with a high key finish too. 

Glad to hear you are still getting about Sandra, even if it is on crutches for now! 

Best Regards and I wish you a speedy full recovery!

Alf and :Pierre - Thank you very much for your comments. I wanted to give this photo a faded old look. I do have a BW of these three girls in a slightly different pose in my album for 2014 as well as a sepia print of all three couples.  Just had fun with this and tried some different processing. Hi pass sounds interesting. Thanks for the suggestion Alf.
