| p.1 #14 · EXPOSURE: Group portraits |
Alright, so summer is winding down (at least on this side o the planet) and we're gearing up for back to school. Most of the summer reunions have come and gone, so show us some group portraits (let's say 5+ people), and maybe give us a little info on the people and story behind the image.
So we were all talking in the lobby after our weekend reunion, getting ready to leave and go back to our corners of the US, when we realized we hadn't taken a group shot of this part of the family. Of course, we'd taken others, but not of this particular group, including my mother, her twin sister and her two boys and their families. So I looked around and went into the little breakfast room, asked the attendant if we could shoot there, and she gave us 5 min to shoot before they had to clean up the room for the day. So I ran to the van, pulled out a flash, stand and umbrella, and hustled everyone (well, 'hustle' is a relative term when you have four people in their mid 70s ) into a corner of the small room, took a couple of test pops, then set the timer and got into position in the top right corner with my youngest daughter, behind my mother (still caught a bit of the table in the lower corner, grrr). This was the result three pops later.

Wow!! This is one the best group shots I have ever seen in my entire life. You Sir are a Master!
