The last day of elementary school for our son Luke. Always bitter-sweet. He is ready to move on, a very sharp and capable young man. But, it is hard knowing that elementary school is over for us. I guess that is the price you pay for getting older. The school he attended does a really cool ‘mini-graduation’ for the fifth graders. They play the Cornhusker game day song and lay out a red carpet for the kids to come down. A nice send off.

During the reception, it was really challenging trying to find a good angle to shoot the bride and groom. They were on an elevated stage and tucked back into a dark curtain. In order to shoot them from the front, I had to stand in front of the folks trying to enjoy the reception. The other option, the one I chose here, was to get behind the bride and groom and try and work that. The only trouble with that, I was now in the direct line of sight for everyone. Not very cool. We did get this one really quick, and I did like how it turned out.

I really liked how this one turned out. The Sony camera handles these tough lighting situations so well. I can get more out of the shadows, and control the highlights really well with this little tool. It helps to have a great subject and cool background to work with!
