For my son’s 6th grade “promotion” party in June I was asked to be the slideshow creator for the ‘end of year slideshow’ as well as party photographer. I offered to do a ‘photo booth’ type set-up at the party even tho I had never done that before. I brought one studio light, backdrop and stands. I could have just walked around and snapped candids but thought for this age group, they would have more fun hamming it up for my camera along with one key item: PROPS. I went out and purchased boas, glasses, hats, mustaches, etc from the party store and boy did that go over great! Here are some of the results. A bright blue background was key to making this age-appropriate and trendy.
Naturally, had to get the party organizing committee in one shot.
