Smithville High Softball - 8/11/16

  • Published September 8th, 2016 by rudys

Thank you to Shannon Denton for working and coordinating the picture day with us this year!  Also, thank you to coach Steve Tingler for all his assistance.  It’s been some time since we have photographed the softball team early in the morning.  I love the lighting we had to work with and the girls were fun to work with also!  It’s always fun doing the buddy images!

Smithville High Dazzlers - 8/12/16

  • Published September 8th, 2016 by rudys

Thank you so very much to Amber Hoverder for coordinating the picture day with us and all her other efforts!  We also want to thank coach Stephanie and all the girls.  Once again, our graphic designer did his magic with the virtual group image of all the girls.  For those of you that are not familiar with a virtual image, it’s where we photograph each individual girl separately and, in post production, it's put together.  As I've said before, it’s more involved as opposed to the normal group photos, but it’s well worth it!  We feel the images have more impact and each girl has their own individual look and personality!

Smithville High Band - 8/3/16

  • Published September 7th, 2016 by rudys

Thank you to Mr. Brockman, band director, and Brittany Terwey, assistant director.  Lots of thanks to Sherri Clegg for coordinating with us both the original picture day and make up day!  The growth in both the band and color guard is incredible.  There was a total of 125+ students in both the band and color guard!  A wonderful season to all!

 

Again, I like to brag a bit on the virtual group photographs.  It looks beautiful, being that there’s so many in the group. For those that don't know, this is the blue screen process where we photograph each student separately and then it’s put together in post production. There's lots of work on the back end, but it’s worth the end result!  Mr. Brockman loves it since we don’t need to pose everyone on bleachers.

Smithville High Football Seniors- 8/5/16

  • Published September 7th, 2016 by rudys

Here's a little more on the Smithville High football...

 

It’s been a tradition for the past few years that we photograph the seniors group photo at night to add a different look to the images, but this time they wanted to have individual photos done at night with smoke as well.  We love challenges here at Rudy’s and when Ronda Boyd mentioned to me their wishes we stepped up to the challenge.  Well, here you can see for yourselves a few more of what we did for the senior guys.

Smithville High Graduation - 5/22/16

  • Published June 24th, 2016 by rudys

I have lost track on how many graduations I have had the opportunity to photograph for Smithville High School...  It's maybe somewhere between 22 and 25 graduations.  Nevertheless, this is the first time that the graduation has been some distance from Smithville.  The Venue was very much a pleasure to work in.  It was very spacious and there were more photography opportunities to capture for the graduate's families.  I’m sure you're wondering where it was...  It was at the Independence Events Center in Independence, Missouri.  I would like to give my grateful THANK YOU’S to Candi Sutton for all her assistance in working with us!!  We congratulate all the graduates for the class of 2016 and wish them the best with their futures!
