LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

This photograph was created for an engagement announcement. I had an idea in my head about what the image should look like and my fiancee happily went along with it. I wanted a vintage feel to the photograph with a touch of whimsy. I set up my camera on a tri-pod and asked my son to press the shutter as my fiancee and I smiled and posed for the numerous exposures. Two off-camera flashes without modifiers provided the lighting. The balloon was semi deflated when we went to take the photos, so I propped it up with a stick and removed it in Photoshop afterwards (I also added more air to the balloon). I then used a cross-process effect to create the vintage look I was after.
