Nice looking picture of your family and one I'm sure you will cherish for a long time. The graduate looked psyched going up to get his diploma.

He was Psyched Lou. Hard to contain. I think he partied for 2 days afterward.

These were shot at about 60-70 yards distance at a guess. Or you might say 180 feet-210 feet distance or in meters it was about 55-64 meters.

Be sure to get the HV Zoom Thyristor and be careful of the voltage the flash uses as some can put out enough to damage your camera. The 285 HV I have works fine on my K10D.
