    I like em, one thing I would say is possibly a reflectfor for some of the shots. The 2 chicks are funny with the faces they made.

    lol yup those are my sisters for you...where would I need the reflector? I got one but I thought the light was pretty even throughout because my setup was a pretty standard key light left and fill light right

    Oh ok I see what your saying. I'll have to whip one out in the future but this shoot was pretty random as in family members just standing where they felt like it having fun.

    Some flagging or re-aligning of the lights would help a wee bit. The glare from the hard light on the painting behind the subjects (left side of many of the photos) is a bit distracting. Otherwise this is a good fun series and should become an annual tradition now for your family!!

    oh wow, I missed the dog totally on first look. I think it would be a great family tradition being everyone is dressed up (we do t-day in jammies!)

    I was amazed at how formal the occasion was, as well.. Looks like a very well-to-do family. We do Thanksgiving in jeans and maybe a polo shirt. I think the first one and the guy in the black jacket are very classy portraits.
