50 Peas in a pod.

I have some pictures of sitting around a fire from a camping trip. They're not particularly good photos, but there is a story I want to tell.
What colors do you normally pair with photos taken at night (black background) ? My daughter is wearing bright pink, and my son and husband are in blue/brown. Putting the photos on black seems pretty harsh, and I don't necessarily want to highlight the pink.

To me around a campfire would make me pick "fire" colors... things in the red, orange, yellow end of the color spectrum with a bit of blue thrown in possibly. Or maybe I've spent too much time watching flames dance.....

I would draw from the other elements in the photo, somehow, although I agree your DD's clothes shouldn't be one of those elements. The blue or brown of the guy's clothes, or maybe green because there no doubt were trees. Or a woodgrain paper of some kind?

I would just pick something that makes the colors pop.

My first thought would be to pull colors from the fire and go from there.

I use white as a background and double mat with a color from the photo with black as the other color...works well for me.

I'd probably go with a Kraft background. Then pull in pops of color with patterned paper.

I had pulled some Kraft card stock to see what I thought. I think I will go pull out some oranges to see if they work with the fire.
Eta: I like the idea of wood grain too. Off to see if I can make this work.
