Part of being a professional photographer is the ability to shoot at short notice and to adapt to radically different shooting circumstances than expected. The day of these senior prom photos in Cape Coral, Florida I thought I would be just photographing Marvin (above lower left) and his date and maybe another couple at the Cape Coral Yacht Club. As you can see from these photos, there were quite a few more people and it ended up just being someone's backyard!
For having 15 seniors on a small dock along with myself and two light stands and a few parents, it went pretty orderly and no high schooler nor any photography equipment ended up in the water thankfully!
I made use of the location as best I could finishing the shoot by getting up on the retainer wall for some higher up group shots of everyone as they once again had no trouble coming up with entertaining poses.
It was quite unexpected to be shooting a large group of people when I was prepared to shoot maybe two couples at a time, but it turned out to be one of my more fun shoots and I always like a challenge!
