[ FLASHED BLACK BORDER ]
An 8x10 Saunders Special Border Salon Easel was used to make this narrow black border. It results in a perfectly even, one-inch white border on all sides, unlike a 35mm negative printed without cropping. However, this is a case in which I think cropping does not improve the composition. Although attention is focused on the main subject, I'd rather see the faces of the girls in the background. You may disagree!
