Day 73 High School Dance Company

My granddaughter asked me to take a photo of her high school dance company to put on their Spring concert program. I went over today and this is the one she picked.
She is kneeling on the first step and is located to the right of the boy in the front. She has her hand on her hip and is wearing a drop necklace. (See her??) She will graduate this year.

Some of you asked questions about this. It was cloudy so I set the WB to cloudy. Manual settings. 50mm lens I took 30 pictures. ISO 400 f/16 SS 1/125 Two of the girls helped with where to place people... I made a few changes as we went along. They wanted to do their own poses. I figured, it's their thing so why not?

  1. What a fun picture! It reminds me of Glee. I think I would be intimidated in front of so many people.

  15. Here are my settings: manual 50mm l;ens
    it was dark with a total cloud cover..about to rain, so I set the WB on cloudy
    ISO 400
    SS 1/125

    Remembering to shut down the aperature was what helped to get everything in focus. I usually forget. At 16, everyone was in focus.
