What’s the secret to taking great graduation pics?


Hey parents! Congrats on your child's upcoming graduation! Whether your little one is graduating from kindergarten, high school, or college, graduation pictures and videos are a must-have. That's why we’d like to share some tips on how to take great graduation pictures and videos, and how Photobucket can help preserve those memories compression-free.

1. Get the right equipment. 

First things first, you need to make sure you have the right equipment. While your smartphone might be sufficient, investing in a good camera will make all the difference. Look for a camera with high resolution and good low-light performance so that you can capture clear and vibrant images in any setting.

2. Scout out the location.

Before the big day, take some time to scout out the location where the graduation will take place. Look for spots with good lighting and interesting backgrounds that will make your pictures and videos stand out.

3. Get creative with angles.

Don't be afraid to experiment with different angles and perspectives. Get down low or shoot from up high to add variety to your shots. You can even try using a drone to get aerial footage of the graduation ceremony.

4. Capture the details.

While it's important to get shots of the graduate, don't forget to capture the little details that make the day special. Take pictures of the graduation cap and gown, the diploma, and any other graduation-related things that will help tell the story of the day.

5. Plan for group shots.

Group shots are a must-have at any graduation ceremony. Make sure you plan ahead to get shots of your graduate with the family, friends, and classmates. These pictures will be cherished for years to come.

6. Shoot videos too!

Pictures are great, but videos can capture even more memories. Record your child's graduation ceremony, walking across the stage, speeches, and even their reactions to opening their graduation gifts. This will create a beautiful video montage that you and your child can look back on for years to come.
