    Im trying to do a mothers day portrait of my wife, her sis, and myself for therey mother. Couple problems I am haveing is im 6'2 they are 5'0 and 4'11. How do I pose us three so I dont dwarf them? Also it going to be in a beautiful field that is covered in yellow flowers, whar colors would look good? they are not model skinny so I dont want the pics to make them feel worse? Gear is D40, kit lense. 55-200 vr, and a tamron 17-50, SB600, filters, expodisc ect. I posted this accidently in the professional gallery also!

    Thank You

    Mike

    I think you can youse the difference in your heights to your advantage and make some pretty fun shoots. Do not be afraid to pick your women up and actually point out the how litte they are compare to you. It may look very cute!

    As for colors, it depends on what kind of feel you want the photos to have. you may all wear white and taht will make the pictures look very light and full of light and sun (yellow and white will have that angelic feel) or you may all dress in contrast colors.

    I think it is hard to give advice on something like that

    good luck and post the pictures on ehre afterwards!

    If i think they are post worthy i will, im very judgmental bout my photos. White may be better than the blue we were thinking, maybe we will just try both.

    Thanks
