Graduation Photo Spots at UCF! | The Campus Knights

– Hello and welcome back
to the campus Knights, I’m Vannecer and today I’m
joined by Brandon, and Sonali. – Today we’re going to be
taking you around campus and showing you some awesome spots that you can take graduation pictures at. – Here is some hidden jems
you might not know about, so let’s go check them out. – Yeah are you ready for your closeup? (laughing) (clicking) Okay let’s go! (bubbly pop music) – So first we are outside
of this CFE Arena, near all these beautiful
palm trees and the flowers. And for this shot I’m going to
be using my wide angle lens. This is a 16-55 mm. And this will just capture everything, and it will just be really beautiful. (trumpet music) Pro tip; you don’t want anything
coming out of anyone’s head so as you can see there’s a
palm tree right behind her head, so just kind of move the camera
over a bit so the palm tree is over to the side a little bit. – Right now we’re at Knights Plaza, which is right outside of Nitros, and as you can see these amazing
palm trees right above us. Kind of looks like California
so, let’s take some pics. – Ready, one, two and three. First pro tip is it’s
all about the angles, so try to take photos from
different perspectives. – Oh my goodness we are
here at the Stadium, where on May 2nd and May 3rd, where all graduates can come
by and take pictures from 10am, to 2pm. So let’s get some snapshots. – So we are at the Bridge
near the Alumni center, I was thinking we could
do a shot in the middle, and one leaning over the
like the edge of the bridge. So let’s see what we can do. So we’re using the 50 mm
so the background is nice, and blurry, and we can
get her right in focus. – So I’m the one being photographed now, and I forgot to take off my hair tie. Pro tip; always take these things off, they can ruin a whole picture. – So we decided to stop here because there’s a bunch of plants behind her, and if you want like a
tropical feel in your pictures, this would be the place
to go, so let’s do it. So we are here right
behind the Student Union, between Chick-Fil-A
and the honors building where there is this beautiful wall that we’ll be taking pictures in front of. Pro tip; so I’m going to try to use things that are in front of me, like leaves or little like mossy
things that are coming down from the tree and it’s
going to be super blurry, but it’s gonna just give
the picture a little bit more of an oomph. – Beware of the spiky things in the bush. – Make sure the objects
aren’t in her face, maybe like put it one
down near her shoulder, or one right above. Just don’t block the face. By the way, we are still
shooting with a 50, 1.2. – As you can tell I’m not a model. – Right now we’re in between
Feral Commons and the Math Lab, or the Mathematical Sciences building. And we’re taking pictures
under these wonderful elms. So let’s see how these turn out. – Pro tip; if you are taking
grad pics of shorter guys, then you can angle the camera from below, to make their legs look
a little bit longer. – [Sonali] So tall! Our current location is right
in front of the Health Center, we have these rows of trees
and it’s kind of our version of the Lockma here at UCF. – So we’re still using the 50
just so you get those close up shots of her and the trees. – Here we are on the top of garage B, right across from the R the Busi. And when there are no cars around, you can take a picture of
the lovely UCF Water Tower, right in the background. – Pro tip for this shoot
is to make the aperture as high as it can go, so you
can actually see the UCF. So the lower you make the aperture, the blurrier it’s gonna be. So you want to see the UCF
letters in the background. So we’re going to increase the
aperture as far as it can go, so I have mine set to 22. – So we have some really exciting news. – Should I tell? Should you tell? – Yeah you should tell em’. – The Reflecting Pawn
is opening this weekend. (laughs) – What? – Yes now you can finally
take graduation photos, relax, study on the
lawn, do all the things that you love to do. – Remember to do your part
and keep the Pawn running by keeping glitter out
of the Reflecting Pawn while taking grad pictures. – That’s all we have for this video, make sure to comment down below
if you have any other ideas of places on campus where
you could take sweet pics. – And we’ll see you next time.
