I did a large group shot last weekend at a local college. It was a concert band with about 60 members. I wanted to get there sooner to plan out some lighting but the best I could do was 30 minutes before we were supposed to shoot. This was due to a parade shutting down the street in front of my studio for the hour before I was supposed to leave... Didn't even realize there was a parade that day. Anyway, here's what I got The main thing I don't like about the image is the shadows behind the last row of people. Does anyone have any ideas on that. Here is a setup diagram: I did go back and remove the shadows in PS, but I would have liked to have done it with light, while taking the picture. other than placing some strobes back in the back to light up the back wall, I'm not sure what else I would have done. Any suggestions? Oh here's the PS'd shot without the shadows. I have a couple of more fine tweeks to make, but it's pretty much done.
