    Shooting adult family potraits

    I usually do weddings where all the pictures tell a story about the special couple. My shots are fairly predictable (I'm working on more creative ideas), the standard boring shots are just where I am. What are some good positioning ideas for a family of 6-8 people? Any other advice? I only really have a relationship with two of the family members so I'm a little nervous.

    Could you describe that for me? I assume you mean taller in the middle, but what else?

    Collages.net has a family portrait posing tutorial to download on their blog. It really helped me with large family posing.

    I've just searched their site but I can't find anything like that. Do you have a URL?

    The guy kinda rambles for the first 1/4 but since it is a download you can fast forward.

    Great thread, I'll be trying to shoot my 1st group for Thanksgiving. One of the members of that family has cancer and I was told by another this means a lot to them. I really want to make it right. Thanks for the info.
