North Carolina Photographer - February Issue of Our State Magazine

The February issue of Our State Magazine has a spotlight on the Golden Grove Candy Company of Warsaw, North Carolina. Kirk Pullen Photography was contacted by the art director of Our State Magazine to capture the images for the article called THE PRIZE INSIDE. I had heard of the Golden Grove Candy Company before, but I was not sure what they sold. It was just by coincidence that I happened to eat one of their Carolina Crisp peanut bars at a high school basketball game the week before I was contacted. It was really cool getting to see the whole process in action. It is amazing that a small town like Warsaw can ship food all over the world. Lee Swinson is the owner and operator of the Golden Grove Candy Company and he was kind enough to give me the tour of factory where they make the peanuts and candy bars. Let's just say I have never seen so many peanuts in one place before. If you haven't got around to trying Golden Grove Peanuts and Carolina Crisp bars then you really need to. They taste great!

How I Created it...

On New Year's Eve I was helping my brother with a family portrait session in Rodanthe, NC. I found some really wicked looking trees. I used a stream from an old photo on a trip to the Pisgah Forest in the Mountains of North Carolina. Add in one prom photo of Victoria from last year who requested Angel wings on her photo and you have the end result. Keep visiting for cool new composites in 2013!

The New Year brings changes to Kirk Pullen Photography has a new pricing structure for 2013. We will be offering more specials this year and we are excited about working with the Arts Company Studios out of Faison, NC. I've worked about 5 hours in Photoshop on this composite of a picture I call Radiant Angel. It all started from a prom photo that took at the Kirk Pullen Photography Studio here in Warsaw, NC. Tomorrow I will show how I put the composite together in photoshop, so stay tuned to this blog.
