    Thanks David. The kids love the images. Within 24 hours of posting I get between 16,000 and 20,000 hits on my Smugmug gallery, lol. (There are only about 175 kids per grade.)

    Photographs are a dime a dozen, but the *good* photographs of memories are priceless. Makes it that much more odd no one seems to even want to pay the dime a dozen rate for professional photographers... but I digress :biggrin:

    The kids are lucky to have you around to shoot for them Gary!

    Thanks Jay. But not just me, the kids would appreciate any competent photog. If any of us here have the time, mosey down to your local school and offer your services. As to the dime, all my stuff is pro bono and I give the drama teacher a DVD of the images for free distribution to the kids.

    GRAA0001.
    The kids built the set.

    GRAA0265-L.

    GRAA0536.

    Are you a teacher or have affiliations with the school? A couple of my friends went there for high school.

    I hear you on that one - I'm shooting a local high school's performance of Hairspray next weekend. Although I'd love to say I got the gig as a result of my photographic skills, its really because the director is my brother-in-law and I offer to do it for free.

    That looks like quite the high quality production with ear-piece microphones and the works!
