Former Morean Arts Center photography student Sue's son, Conor, graduated high school as part of the class of 2013. She threw a graduation party out at Caddy's on Treasure Island, Florida for him and contacted me about photographing the afternoon event. As the sign shows above, Conor is Clemson bound!
There were multiple family generations at the party, including Conor's grandparents seen above along with his sister. Shooting in direct afternoon sunlight is of course a challenge, so positioning everyone just so was extra important to minimize shadows as much as possible and also to try and pull some detail and color out of the background, though ultimately in the above shot I decided to convert it to black & white.
Most at the party were Conor's classmates who did not seem to mind the harsh sunlight at all!
