I caught this great shot at my daughter’s high school graduation. I knew the kids were going to throw their hats…I just waited for the right moment.

Indoors, high ISO, using my 2.8 lens at Erie’s Warner Theater.

Somehow this captures the excitement and release of the end of the graduation process.

I spend a lot of time working with Juniors and Seniors on their Senior photos and other high school activities. I appreciate their combination of energy and optimism… and often a timidness that gradually fades away as they approach graduation time.
