Every family of course will have their own family picture. Family photography can help you to be creative in capturing family memory according to your own style. Normally, people feel free to take the family picture according to free style. But if you want your family picture to be more professional you should follow the below steps:
- Nice position
You should think of different position for the family portrait. It depends on how many people are there in your family and the space for taking picture. But for the family with 2 children, you can form the shape of the whole family bowing head together. Every member will hold hands. It is better if the photographer will stand higher than the objects so the picture can capture the feeling of the whole family hand in hand. You can think of other positions which are up to your family member favor.
- Big family with big groups of members
If your family is a big family, so you can divide the family into groups of members and will stand together. Young and people with height will stand behind, old people will sit or stand in front of the picture and old people and children should be in the center of the picture and will stand in the first line. High people should stand in the 2 edges of the picture. You can use a separating flash mode to provide more light for the dark area in the picture. If you do that the picture will be brighter and sharper.
- Presenting relationship
One of the most wonderful ideas for the family portrait is to express the feeling, emotion and close relation among family members. It does not mean that the whole family will sit or stand together. The old people can stand together with the young people to see the difference and close relation between the grandparents and the children. More importantly, you have to capture the smiles of all your family members to show the happiness of the whole family.
- Appropriate dress
Family portrait is the chance for you to be of great performance. All the family members should wear clothes with same color and style or same dresses and shirts to obtain the interesting and exciting effect. In other case, you can wear the different color but match with each other. But you should avoid strong color like red, orange and so on you should know how to match to make the unique and common looking for the family members.
- Angles for taking pictures
You should use to take pictures with different angles. You should try one principle such as the photographer stands in the land and the object will stand. You should use the flash mode in this case.
You should be creative when taking picture. Modern pictures are taken with natural positions under natural space. Do not dress so colorfully keep it normally and be happy with your family picture.
