    I was shooting some pictures of the city in a popular place to do such a thing when a limo pulled up and a bunch of prom kids got out. I asked if I could take their picture for practice and told them where I would post them so they could copy them to their own computers.
    Anyhow all would have been wonderful for them and for me BUT the freaking limo driver got super ****ed that I was there. I dont know why. I did first look to see if he had a camera and if he did I never would have approached. He said'That's my job" I appologized and said "Oh sorry I didnt see a camera with you." He siad "I don't have one becuase they all have like ten of them!" He was really nasty with me.
    So I asked the kids if it was ok and they said yes of course. So I took some. The guy who I will refrain from calling a bad word wouldnt stop interrupting and so it was hard to get them all to look my way.
    He then asked me to leave. I didnt want to start an argument that he sadly would have lost in front of a bunch of high school kids on their way to prom. I want to start a business and that is not a good impression. Those kids will be getting married and having kids and all that and I dont want them thinking of me as a hot tempered loud mouth y'know?
    So I waslked away gracefullly and I emailed the company.
    Anyhow here is what I managed to get with this stupid limo driver milling around.

    I know you guys arent big on selective coloring but they're a bunch of high school kids... I pretty much know they'll like it. :)

    I just had me prom a little while ago, it was fun.

    It sounds like you had a rough time, ha, but it's good that you didn't argue. You were definitely thinking ahead.

    I like the images, and so will the "kids," ha.

    Wow they look great... and screw that guy. He was a limo driver/photographer?

    If wouldve came up and said "Listen I too am a photographer, and I planned on taking some pictures of them to offer them, would you mind not taking the pictures" then maybe I would've left, but come on... how rude.

    I wonder if there is a way to photoshop out the pantyline in the third one? It seems a bit distracting...

    The individual shots are flawless. Strung out groups shot at an angle are almost impossible. You probably did as well as humanly possible. Might I asked about the skin tones in the group looking straight ahead.

    Yeah I wanted these couples to move in closer but everything took place in about 5 minutes so it was kind of rushed. Not to mention I was already angry - glad if you can't tell my hands were shaking!
    Um , yeah that selective coloring is not the best job in the group shot facing but I see how people react to this one portrait in the middle of the mall that has selective coloring to it and they freak out and it's horrible use of it!!! So I thought they might like it. To me, they look like dead people in pretty dresses. :confused:

    I think it will work for you. The reason is who your customers would be. I think night of the living dead will wow them.
