It was my brother in-law's prom this week, so I happily volunteered to do photos for him and his friends.

This was probably my favorite shot of the day.

Strobist info:
- Sun high and behind subjects
- Ezybox hotshoe high and in front of camera, just out of frame. With SB-26 on 1/2 power (triggered with skyports)
- 3 stop ND filter on the lens so I could shoot at 1/200 and reasonable aperture.

    Thanks for your uproarious post on the wedding beach! Had to laugh. And thanks for letting me use it on a post about the basics of a small business start up.

    Keep up the good work - looking for more great pictures from you!

    Hi Sean, love the photo. I would like to use it on a Wellness website. It will be captioned "America’s youth are the promise for our future". Let me know if that is a problem.
