    I'm going to take some photos at the graduation ceremony this Friday for the school where I work. Small ceremony, about 150 students.

    The students are going to come off the stage holding a diploma holder. I thought I would walk them to a staged area that is a few feet away from the stage. My one co-worker thinks I should put a blue screen up so that I can drop the photo into a nice scene. I've never done that, but I did buy some special "blue" paper from a photo store and have it on hand.

    I could just stay with the natural scenery (a football field).

    Thoughts or leads to these digital backdrops?

    Thoughts on posing? Face, 1/3 body, full front, or slight turn of body?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Well I'm still amateur photographer, but from graduations I have been to, and also experienced was a little staged area. From what I remember it was about a 1/3 body shot with a slight turn. I don't know if that will help you out.
