Matric Farewell photos for St John’s College kids
I was commissioned to do a shoot for 12 kids that had there farewell last Saturday the 10th of September. I had clear instructions what I must shoot and who I must shoot. Therefore I did not have too much scope with creativity. As there was not a lot of time either it felt like a bit of a sausage machine to get them photographed before leaving.
The kids came together at a friend’s house and I had to do the shoot there, while they were busy having some snacks and drinks. A few kids even came late and with the sun setting it was a mad dash to get everything done before them leaving. A few of the boys was not even keen on taking photos and that made for a lot of jokes among them.
I shot a lot of photos with a very shallow depth of field blurring the backgrounds to hide it in a sense. The light was awesome at one stage but that area of the house did not appeal to having nice photos, forcing me to work in the shadowy area where I could use a wall as a background.
By the end of the shoot there was a lot more than the 12 but I had fun and that’s all that matters
Here are some of the images.
