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!
