There are many family related things that can be created properly and one of them is group family photographs. It may seem like a simple thing. But can be really hard to achieve if family members are not in the same page. Not everyone will be agree to smile and look at the camera at the same time. In fact, it can be difficult to synchronize bod and facial gestures. Even so, we could still have wonderful family portrait, if everyone is kept happy and agreeable with the family picture. Before creating the family photo, it is important to make sure that everyone is at ease and they are comfortable enough. For many people, it shouldn’t be a problem for them to be at ease in front of the camera, but this can be quite challenging for some people. We should also encourage everyone not be afraid in front of the camera. Everyone should be encouraged to be active and move into the scene. Any posture and gesture should be aimed to emphasize strong connection among family member.
The photograph should display love and kinship among family members. It is important to make sure that the whole family interacts well with one another before the group photo is snapped. If there’s no laughter and good communication just a moment before the photo is taken, people will tend to look rigid. In fact, if there are arguments before the photo is taken, it may be a good thing to postpone taking the group photo. It will be a good thing to sit down for half an hour until everyone is more relaxed. Each family member should be asked whether he or she is willing to sit fro the a group picture. If it feels awkward to sit in front of a stranger, group photo can be taken in the house with the help of a friend or neighbor. Today, many compact camera models and even smartphones are able to provide good results for small-sized pictures. We can print them using high quality photo paper and the printer. People will become more flexible and they can pose in a more relaxing manner. However, when taking group photo in the house; we should take multiple shots; because we may not be skilled enough to produce great results with a few shots.
We should know that timing is everything. However, it is something that we can achieve with proper practice. It is important to learn about basic compositions, so we will be able to create better pictures in the long run. When taking pictures, we should consider the proper and natural flow of events. The whole family should be arranged, so they will look natural together. There should be no artificial pose, which can make them look somewhat rigid. It is quite likely that we don’t have good lighting equipment. As an alternative, we could take photo outdoor during the morning when the sun is behind the camera. If we take photos indoor, we should use flood flashlight to get better results.
