Steveston-London Secondary School 2009 Dry After Grad

Sunday, 28 June 2009

Hi to all SLSS 2009 grads! 

You kept me, Simon, and the parent volunteers extremely busy with the overwhelming popularity of the "cheesy" photo studio at the DAG.  Shooting, processing, and printing several hundred pictures really kept us on our toes!  We made it a huge priority to get photos in students' hands this year.  In the end, I think it was a great success judging from the tremendously creative pictures that resulted.  We had a lot of fun, hope that we've given you some memories to cherish, and we wish you all the best in the future!

I'll be posting further information here on this blog entry on how to order more in just a few days...let me catch up on my sleep first!  Stay tuned...

In the meantime, here are some of the fun selections from the studio last night:


Technical notes (for those that read this far):  The studio was set up as last year, with a Hensel Porty firing into an umbrella for a general main light and a second light for fill and modeling.  I shot the Nikon D3 tethered, which allowed for quicker shot selection.  Students had their session, previewed the resulting shots with me, picked their favourites, I adjusted cropping and exposure if needed, and printed the images right away.  An additional workstation was set up to handle the processing of the candid shots throughout the night coming from the Nikon D700, some of which were done with CLS remote off-camera flash.  Images were also exported for use on the main stage slideshow.  It takes a fair bit of technology to pull this off!
