    For a belated Father's Day gift from my mom, I am going to be taking upclose potraits of myself and my 5 siblings. It will be indoors, and the photos will be black/white. Any advice or tips I should know about prior to this.

    What I have:
    Tripod
    Film/digital camera (i use both)
    White backdrop
    natural lighting/flash

    Take plenty of photos if you are going to have all 6 of you in the same shot as it takes many attempts untill you get a shot when you all look your best :)

    Ok so im still really new to photography but I thought my opinion can't hurt. Shoot it in colour and then convert to B/W. Gives you more control over how the pic is gonna look/feel. If you do a quick google search you will come up with heaps of different ways to convert them to B/W, all with their own looks :D.
