Carrollwood High School Graduation Cap Throw

The Last Hurrah! High School Graduation completed!

The Last Hurrah! Carrollwood High School Graduation completed!

My second son Hugo graduated from this excellent high school Sunday thanks to his teachers and advisors there. He is accepted to the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida to study Computer science this fall. He is 6’4″ at the back on the right with glasses. To make this photo, I stood beside the official photographer who was on the top of a ladder. I stood on the ground, switched on live view and raised my D600 as high as I could and composed the photograph from the screen on the back of the Nikon. I set it on Continuous High Speed to ensure that at least 1 photo would have him on screen. Luckily one of the eight photos did! The problem was that the left side of the group threw their caps up before the right side, so with the later images there were more caps on the right. It was easy to add back the missing caps from the right hand side using masking in layers. D600, 1/200, f13, ISO 125, 28mm with 28-70 Nikon 2.8 lens.
