Photographing groups can be a humbling experience for even the most seasoned photographer. The trick is to create an image that succeeds on an individual and collective level. Depending on the number of people involved, this can entail quite a bit of planning and more than a little bit of luck. Below are a few tips for photographers bold enough to tackle the group portrait.

Choosing the right location is important for any portrait.

Think Big Picture First

Who are you photographing and what are you trying to communicate with your image? These are questions you should ask before any portrait shoot, but they become especially important when working with groups. For example, photographing a team of lawyers will require a different approach than photographing a bridal party. The first step in this process is choosing a location. Your sitters are framed, literally and figuratively, by the environment that they occupy. In some instances, a location can be almost like another member of your group, providing visual clues as to what brought your subjects together. On the other end of the spectrum, a nondescript location can help focus attention on the individuals in your image.
