Kids and “the competition”

One of there cool things about making friends with the competition (in this case, a local photographer) is that they allow you to photographer their kids at the bus stop minutes before the bus pulls up. 

And they allow you to call up 12 hours before the bus arrives to schedule the 7 minutes session. 

These two kids are just really cool. They just played along and went with the flow.  I will say it helped that they are used to being in front of a camera, so I won’t take any credit for making them comfortable. 

I am working on a series of portrait photos where I have only 10 minutes or less to capture something. It is fun, and a bit difficult, because I have no time to set up fill light (if there is no strong natural light) and with the time change 7:10am is a tough time when it is overcast.  And shooting medium format the ISO only goes up to 800. (at least with my MamiyaLeaf ) 

Thanks to Shawn and Corinna (mom and dad and my competition) for the use of your kids!
