Mel’s 21st

Some photos I took at my friend Melinda’s 21st birthday party.  The costume theme was “Chilhood Icons” and there were some awesome outfits!  Most of the photos were standard “event photography” to capture what was happening on the night – speeches, friends, etc. – but I did get to take a few more artistically composed shots of Mel and her beautiful friends. 🙂

Because of the awesome colours in the costumes I thought it best in post-processing to slightly increase the saturation and contrast in the images.  I’ve tried not to go too far with enhancing the colours, however, as to do so would make the images look unrealistic and garish.  Hopefully I’ve managed to find the right medium!
