One of the biggest problems here in NC is that some of the locations for graduations here are not air conditioned...and it's been in the low hundreds for about 5 days! Ugh!!!

Mazel Tov to you guys! I don't care what anyone says, graduating from high school is quite a feat. Your son did you proud -- but he also showed what a great mom you are.

It really depends on your camera, if it's a point and shoot and you are indoors, I'd set it to night time or sports setting. If it's a dSLR camera, you may just really have to get really close or get a faster lens to shoot with!

Believe it or not, shooting as a movie sometimes works!

Our middle child graduated last week, too. The venue was really not conducive to photographs--thank goodness the official photographer's photos will be available online--FREE!--tomorrow.

Despite the less-than-idea setting, it was a wonderful graduation, with a nice mix of ceremony and fun.

Happy T13! Congrats on you son's graduation. I graduated last year from high school and I felt relieved and excited to leave it behind for new experiences in college. Hope to see you at my 5th edition about Katie MacAlister at Talk about My Favorite Authors blog.
