Day 110/365: Easter Bunny Helper


Today we got a visit from the Easter Bunny helper, who was making her rounds to some of the families that were on the "do not visit" list, to see if there was any chance they could be removed. I bribed her with a photo, and now we are back on! Whew!


On a technical note, I've been learning to give up total control and trust on Nikon's CLS system for certain off-camera flash photos. This involves learning when it is advantageous to do so. Easter Bunny helpers are very impatient and horrible at listening, so dialing your exposure and letting the camera do the heavy lifting for me was definitely the way to go for this portrait.
