TEB Takes Five
The Easter Bunny (or as we called him - "the") takes a short break from posing for pictures at Cantigny's "Breakfast with the Easter Bunny" and the Easter Egg Hunt.
I photographed 147 different groups of really cute kids (and some adults) between 9am and 12:30 pm. It was a blast.
Some of the kids were terrified of the big white rodent, others couldn't get enough of him. There was one little girl that was literally trembling with excitement. She would stand away from him, then edge a little closer, then TEB would hug her. It was just adorable.
Lighting: SB600 through large umbrella high and camera right at 1/2 power. SB600 in Lastolite Ezybox directly in front of camera and below at 1/8 power. Both triggered by CLS. This configuration solved a problem I was having in previous events where one child would cast a shadow on another kid. The umbrella camera right was 46 inches, so it threw some big light, but the softbox filled in any problem shadows. It even dealt with a few kids (and dads) wearing hats. I love it when a plan comes together.
