Hi to everybody,
I'm wanting to take a family portrait for my family with my newly accuired 50D. I'm really new at this so I'm seeking some advise. I read the internet and found a few tips myself and was trying to find out if there are any other tips.
What I found out to be critical in a family portrait:
1- positioning of people (any ideas to contribute?)
2- clothes that work well together-such as pieces in the same color palette
3- filling the frame will produce a photo that shows great detail on people's faces
4- lighting to use a softer approach for more natural skin tone
What I trying to find out is the camera settings people usually use to shoot family portraits both formal style and informal style. I'll probably be shooting both indoors and outdoors. I'm alittle confused at the appature setting if I want to get everybody's face in focus.
Thanks for reading and contributing.
