Photographing groups of people, from small to large, present an array of challenges that range from choosing a suitable location to setting up the lighting, and from posing subjects to engaging uncooperative children. These challenges are only multiplied as the size of your group grows. Join Tony Corbell as he shares from his wealth of experience as a portrait photographer to walk you through all of the aspects of shooting four different configurations of people in four different locations. Each location changes up the size of the group and presents new lighting problems to solve. You'll have a front row seat for watching Tony as he sets up and shoots a family portrait, a group of dancers in their studio, a group of firemen at their station (both inside and out), and then wraps up with a group of over 60 KelbyOne staff members inside a warehouse.
