    Hey!

    Well i attempted a Poppy Appeal pciture but a stupid security guard put me off as apparently I couldnt take pictures in store even though i had, had permision. So he put me off nd kept lookin at me, so my background is completely rubbish...

    any ideas how to improve? Is it a photoshop job?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Personally, I like the shot. I like your high angle.
    Sorry, the clone tool is strickly forbidden in PJ, so you are stuck with the background you have.......but I don't think it's bad. If it really bothers you, you could burn it lightly.

    Good attempt. I agree with the angle. The background seems "environmental" and does not bother me. I see a lack of enthusiasm in the subject, which generally is hard to avoid. Time constraints and grumpy guards can and will take there toll. The best idea is to take control of the situation. I will say something to the effect of Ok gang take your places and get ready for the standard shot. We got that. Now look proud. Now be silly. Now get comfortable. All the while moving around as much as possible. Of course take as many exposures as possible.
