Another event for me to shoot was yearbook photos for a local private school. This was a new adventure for me and quite an event; with children ranging from 4 years to their 50's (staff - lol)! Really wasn't sure what I was signing up for but it turned out to be a great learning experince and I think the kids really had a great time too.
So many times, children hate getting their school photos because the photographer comes in, snaps one, maybe two shots and then moves on. Well, that is not how I did this event. I took at least 5 shots of each child and at time up to 10 - depends on the child. Some were a bit more nervous about the whole matter and needed to warm up to the camera. Others were sitting down ready to go with their smile up and face aglow. It was an all day event but so worth the time spent. Really a different experience shooting consecutive people with varying ages but think all-in-all, it was a great event!
Definitely something I would like to do again if given the opportunity, but as with any new experience, you walk away with fresh ideas for the next time! So keep your eyes open, I may be doing your school next year!
