What is OOB? #8991458

Irene Colling level-classic 10/23/2010 2:55:43 PM

Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

Rita, OOB stands for Out Of Bounds. It simply is a term to describe the technique where the subject seems to be coming out of the frame.

Patricia White has several OOB photos in the club. #8991799

Two years after I took this photo this couple just got married in LasVages with 'Elvis' officiating the ceramony.

I had good color when I took the shot so I didn't need to change the contrast/exposure. Created OOB and placed a texture layer around the edges.
