Jared and Greg are two photographers with a funny blog about photography and nikon cameras. And of course, the Grandma.

Here two tutorials about "How To Photograph Group Portrait"

In FroKnowsPhoto Show #6 Jared and I discussed group portraits since we had photographed a big group of about 200 people at UG7. He had a cherry picker and the perfect conditions for it.
Unfortunately most of the time that is not the case. We need to pose everyone correctly in order to have them looking their best. In my video I discuss how to position everyone so their faces can be seen, higher angles, large and small group portraits and a few other small tips which make a huge difference in the overall photograph.

At UG7 I had to take a large group photo of almost all of the attendees. This is a behind the scenes video of how everything was captured and how we got to the final photo below. Greg was recoding video with the Nikon D7000 and I had on my Sony Wireless mic to capture all my audio.

At the end of the video I show you how I edited this photo and yes I ended up using fill light this time and it made the image much stronger. Be sure to click the image below to see the final full res jpeg which was exported from lightroom.
