Anyone here have clients ask you to do graduation party invitations?

Do you custom design or buy/find templates somewhere?

Anyone have an example you could share? Looking for inspiration :)

I have done quite a few...usually design my own. I will try to pull some examples together.

Not a senior, but definitely a lighting setup I'll be adding to the lineup with them this season.

Saw one tonight with a sports illustrated photographer.. Similar to this. Its a cool pattern and one i will add this year as well. The one i used has 5 lights. This looks like 3 with a reflector.

Congrats....I'm extremely jealous.

Thank you. It's small, but has potential.

2 lights.

Ab1600 Camera right in 47"octabox w/grid (think rembrandt)

Ab800 camera left and rear for the rim light, medium softbox with grid.

There was a reflector below for a little fill underneath

Background is just my studio wall

I hope this thread doesn't end on page 666!

Love the work I've been seeing.

I really need to step up my retouching game. I usually do very little because I don't like the results, but I like most stuff I see here. I wonder if the difference is that I don't see the before so it's not quite so in my face.

Also my website/portfolio is so old and terrible I am not sure why anyone is calling me.

I got my divorce finished up so it's time to get back to work. No more excuses.
