Family Portraits: Divide People into Smaller Groups

Divide people into smaller groups

If you’re shooting extended family portraits, positioning everyone can be overwhelming. A good strategy is to divide people into smaller units – couples and siblings are obvious choices – and keep them together. This makes it easier to organize everyone, but more importantly it will give some visual structure to your photo. Rather than a big mass of people you will have number of distinct elements for your viewer to focus on.
