Week 4 - Day 24 - May 24, 2009 "The Graduate"


Today was a big day for my daughter. She received her Master's Degree in Landscape Architecture from Cornell University. As you can imagine we are very proud of her, and her accomplishments.

Before her graduations ceremony we had some time on the Arts Quad, so we took some photos. I find this photo humorous for a couple of reasons. Kari seems to be standing in almost the same pose as Ezra Cornell. I don't believe that she was planning on doing that. The other thing that makes me smile is the lighting on Ezra Cornell's beard looks as if he is sticking out his tongue. It reminds me of something that you would see on Monty Python.

Lesson(s) Learned:
  • The Lessons I learned today was mostly about how to arrange multiple people for a portrait. We took some other photos of all the kids together. In the past these photo shoots tended to be unfruitful for taking great portraits, but we had many humor filled photos. This time there was still a lot of humor, but in the end we had some nice portraits.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/1000, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 70 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 113mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, hand held.
