But there are lots of innovative ways to add flair to family photos and make them appealing. You can find suggestions, examples, and how-to information below.
Use your imagination when arranging the family portrait’s subjects. The choices you make will depend on the number of family members you plan to photograph and the available area. Consider the typical family with two children. By positioning the figures in a circle and facing each other, you can get a good image of them.
For example, if everyone is lying on the ground (or any other appropriate surface) while clasping hands. The focal length of your lens is between 17mm and 50mm, either standard or wide. Use DOF mode to focus on the image’s center. The ideal range for aperture is F/9–F/16.
Bring everyone together
Try to arrange a large family in a specific way when taking their picture. Children are in front, old folks are in the middle, and tall young people are behind. Pay attention to improvement. Tall people should be positioned near the frame’s edges. Don’t exactly arrange individuals in the sequence “high, low” for the “randomness” effect; otherwise, the view would look out of place. Use an external flash to eliminate shadows, freeze facial expressions, widen the depth of field, and maintain subject sharpness.
