As their family portrait photographer you could want to request the group to dress similarly, or if they would like going with their styles, then ask them to dress in clothes having related color tones or a neutral color. It doesn’t solely makes it simpler for exposure and retouching, but also guarantees that the picture does not seem washed out or look outdated down the years.
2. Make use of natural lighting
For an effective family, portrait conducts the shoot either early in the morning or late in the afternoon. In case these two times are not suitable and you’re asked to shoot at midday only, select a place that is not open to harsh sunlight but is either under a shade or inside the home.
3. Select effective background
A background that is simple, natural and has plain colors will ensure that the group being photographed remains the center of attention without any detractions. One more thing to make sure is that there are not any unwanted and embarrassing things in the background. You could also consider blurring the background somewhat to focus attention more on the family.
