Banquet time. Here is a fun one that a couple of the teachers graciously allowed me to talk them into.
This year I brought some seamless with me. I also decided to light to make real, noticeable shadows -- this makes the picture seem a little more three-dimensional. Most years I placed lights on both sides creating an even, flat, safe, boring light. Despite that one short-coming the setup meant I couldn't possibly screw up, at least not lighting-wise. With less than a minute to say "hi", get people in place, and make a few frames ... limiting the ways I can screw up is pretty important.
This year I was confident I could run a more interesting setup, still keep it ridiculously fast, and not screw up. So I did.
It still isn't the same as spending quite a bit of time with a single person. But, this is still fun, even more so now that I am not slinging boring light about.
