    So I've been wanting to take pics of my mom, aunt, and grandmother for a while. I don't have any shots of them together at all lol. I made them come over today for a few pics. Let me know what you think. My only nit picks were the choice of clothing but hey, I got what I wanted lol. A pic of them together.

    Lighting is a bit harsh and flat, and this could really stand some color... a different background perhaps.

    Off-camera flash and/or bounce would help with the lighting.

    I think #1's your best. In #3, I'd have put Mom in front and the others behind.

    60 inch Octa cam left , 33 inch shoot thru camera right, and 24 inch soft camera left and behind. What would you change for lighting ?

    Thank you. The only problem with the edit is that they are too pale now. I will check later on when I get home. I am on my iPhone right now. Maybe I can come up with something. But you did give me an idea. Thanks

    It's never a good idea to take shots of bigger people from the side. I wouldn't have necessarily brightened it but def get rid of the reds.

    Depends...

    If you want to keep all 3 subjects in the same focal plane, i.e. all in a line, then not much... Perhaps push the lights a bit more to the sides (closer to the background), and/or swap your Octo and shoot through, but I'd have to play with it a bit.

    If you go to (2) people in back and (1) in front, then I'd change quite a bit. I'd leave your Octo at cam left, replace your 33" with a reflector, and move your back light to cam right. Then I'd pose them so they're standing square to your reflector (roughly 45 degrees to cam) and looking back towards the main light.
