    Prom: a day in the life of a teen

    I got a chance to take some shots of a friend's daughter...boy what a flash back and a reminder of how old I am...she had four friends show up to "help"
    she is one of the cutest and most genuine young women I know...

    1) darn flash...or sun or whatever it was... but I loved her reflection
    2) getting ready
    3) does the blur work....putting on shoes quickly
    4) one of my favs--- classic teen bedroom(chaos) tried to isolate her and desaturate...

    I like most of it.

    Like all the shots. Like the use of B&W. The selective color has to go; too cliche.

    glad you liked them

    I'm all about cheesy...from a teen perspective though it's fun to see yourself in technicolor---especially when none of your friends have any pics like it

    but it is kinda hokey...i think it probably has it's place...

    thnaks for looking

    Nice Pics Natalie...

    I like the second and third of the first set the best. Like you say, shows the "chaos" of the moment.
