Family portrait? say what! so a few years ago I was watching this movie The Jones with Demi Moore and David Duchovny, it’s a good movie it should be on Netflix or iTunes. In the first ten minutes of the movie, when they are moving into their house you’ll see this picture hanging on the wall, cool right? and simple I can do that! I have a white backdrop a giant fifty-inch softbox a bunch of Pocket Wizards, let’s try it. By the way, you can trigger your shutter by using a Pocket Wizard. So after the whole nightmare of trying to get my sister, sister-in-law and my brother, niece and my mom and one cousin in the same place at the same time, I was done before it started. that was more frustrating than trying to photograph children. 🙂
After about twenty minutes, thirty shots /frames later I gave up. It just was not looking the way I wanted. THEN as I was about to start taking everything down my crazy niece was jumping around doing crazy niece things. So my brother picks her up and “click” that one didn’t come out right so I told him to do it again and I got a kinda family portrait.. and a pretty good family portrait at that!
This made a pretty good Father’s Day present too. (30×30 canvas)
