I did a family shoot this weekend: what a wonderful family of engineers. Great people:

How do you do this?

  • Emptied the room.
  • Lit by three speedlights: one bounced, one umbrella’d, and one gelled and flagged, using Honl Photo modifiers.
  • Fired by Pocketwizards.
  • The families are sitting, standing, leaning.
  • Tallest people sit.
  • People angled.
  • Grouped in pyramids and triangles.
  • Settings match ambient light to flash: 1/60 sec at f / 5.6, ISO 250.

…and then you take 50 shots, since four boys are not always easy to shoot – it takes a little effort to get them all to look at the camera!
