Wow, I think this is your best set so far. #4 is great!

Have to agree I think this is the best set so far! So do kids no longer get the traditional cap and gown photo????

3 looks a bit weirdly blurry, 1st curtain with too much ambient weird ?

Sorta interesting though.

Thanks, guys. Ash & I have a pretty good rapport. :)

You nailed it, Case. #3 is a 1/2 second exposure. I messed it up but I like it too much to delete it.

Sorry I missed this! I'm not sure if it's just an expression or an honest question BUT I asked the kids about the traditional yearbook photo, and they said the schools have contracts with two local studios and they have to get it done at one of those two places - mostly to guarantee consistency. As far as the actual cap & gown shot, I have no idea. I haven't seen one of those in years.

I'm not trying to emulate any of the other guys but rather bring some fashion/modeling into the area. We're pretty rural/farm country for the most part and what I'm doing is, believe it or not, quite new. Every other photographer goes for soft, sweet, and safe.

Thanks! It actually was a real question. Because we are now just starting to have friends who have children graduating and they pictures are so different than years ago. Some have been doing a sports theme or just neat pictures like yours.

You actually aren't too far from me. I am in Delaware County PA. Might be calling in a few years for graduation pictures!

Really nice Don; I especially like #1 & 4. I can see where many teens would prefer these shots to the typical studio shots (God I hated those when I was that age).

Yeah I see the themes every now and then too. Usually with soft, flat lighting and cheesy uncomfortable smiles too. :D

Cool cool. That'd be awesome. :)

Thanks. They're telling me that my approach is a huge relief too. One of the fellas from the other set told me this was the first time he ever actually enjoyed getting photos done.
