I made this for graduated students of High music school (where I work) in my hometown. Idea was to present them in cinema-like manner and of course to break that boring tradition of presenting graduate students like they were escaped from communism posters presenting best workers at labor day celebration, with waxy cleaned faces.
This is panorama shot, made of 7 images (portrait orientation). They were standing as on the final image only I was moving in a straight line. Light is one small strobe with Lumiquest softbox attached. Camera was Panasonic Lumix GF1.
