Dartmouth Reunion Part 1

A client is always looking for two very different types of reunion images. The first are shots that tell who was there, how great they look, and what fun they had. The second type is meant to convey what it felt like to be there, the emotion of being with longtime friends in a place filled with memories. Here are some of my favorite images from last week's Dartmouth College reunion. (You may enlarge each image by clicking on it.)

A camera that can make images in low-light situations without a flash captures the true mood. I was shooting this indoor reception at 6400 ISO.

These women were having too much fun!

This is one of my favorite reunion images, conveying the celebration of simply being together.

Dartmouth Reunion Part II

A slight family resemblance.

This was taken around 10:30 at night, and one of us was tired.

I like the timelessness of this image. It was taken through the old, wavy glass of a third-story window in Baker Library.

Taken through a particularly wavy pane. The graphic designer in me is always looking for images that will not simply convey the facts, but also the feeling of a moment.

The high ISO was totally helpful for the street dance. The band, Flash Cadillac, was great. They had me dancing as I was making pictures, and I don't dance.
