#compshot – I am a bit behind and catching up on podcasts just listening to the composite ep and giggling – Gina if you get sick of photography, comedy is definitely your next career. I have replaced the background in this shot using two different solid colour layers with a radial gradient applied. I’ve selected colours from the dress to be the background colours. CC welcome.
