We are responsible for shooting many graduations at the Daily Herald. It becomes challenging to find a new perspective on a traditional event. Often the best pictures come when the students are gathered together waiting to walk in the graduation procession. Kids are excited, nervous, and playful. Here a teacher is joking around with football standout Chick Smith prior to the Vernon Hills Graduation. I think their interaction makes a nice momenet. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

Graduates gather under the American Flag and an overcast sky in the school courtyard before commencement exercises at Marmion Academy in Aurora last month. The grey sky seemed appropriate to the wet spring weather, and the flag seemed appropriate to the school with a military component. So I was able to make a moody, layered photograph that stood out from the rest for me. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
