Photographing Captain America in Philadelphia with MARVEL and BBDO

In Philadelphia, the BBDO agency had an event for kids which they had me come out and cover. It was an event born from a partnership between them and MARVEL on a New Avengers Comic Book called "Hero's Welcome" which promotes diversity. Previously MARVEL had been criticized due to a perceived lack of diversity in their offerings.

My assignment was covering the interaction between Captain America and the group of family members that came out for the event. I shot everything in the natural, available light and tended to stay with a shallow depth of field to create depth in an environment lacking great photo opportunity.
