One White Hat
Contest Number: 113 Contest Theme: Composite Lens: Sigma 18-50 Camera: Pentax K-3 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: F7.1

During a post-wedding family session, the groom picked up a white hat that I use as a prop and started playing with it. That inspired me to take a few shots against the same backdrop of each family member posing with the hat that captured their individual personalities. While post processing in Photoshop, I selected the most interesting photo of each individual, positioned them in a way that showed their relationship to each other and composited the six different images to create this fun family portrait using the same white hat. This is the "pose" they choose as their favorite family portrait.

I love this. The imaginative use of that hat along with the really appealing smiles makes this one stand out. Nominated!
