Shooting the Hillsboro graduation, everyone looks pretty similar, so it’s hard to get an edge.
I get people asking me all the time how they should pose to look especially good, and I rarely have an answer for that. I can find the good light, and the rest is up to them.
So I’m methodically going down this jammed hallway in the Allen Arena basement, shooting the grads as they line up for their procession. This guy, probably the shortest guy in the class, is totally focused on his cell phone game the whole time. I ask to take his pic, he raises the cell almost to his ear, and that’s the shot.
I hear murmurs all up and down the hall. “Damn, cell phone, how cool is that? Why didn’t I think of that?” Little guy, he got game.
