    So, I have a shoot tomorrow in my studio with a family of seven. Mom, dad and five children (ages 10 down). Wondering if anyone has some ideas for positioning and/or lighting. Looking for some classic and some different ideas. Any help would be appreciated. The shoot will be done in my studio stobes with lightboxes is what I am using. Thanks all!

    Look at plenty of bounce, go for a classic pose, then get a few natural ones.

    2 hints and one free piece of advice:

    1. Lighting, lighting, lighting!
    Getting 7 people in one shot without shadows is not easy.

    2. Pose
    Getting 5 people to not have one covering the light, shading the face of another is complex and challenging. Watch the poses/positions.

    3. Free advice:
    If you understand lighting, how it works and how to take advantage of it... you would know all about #1 and #2 and how to avoid this... learn about lighting... start with Strobist and focus on Lighting 101 and 102.
