If exposure were easy, your camera would have just one exposure mode, and it would get the exposure correct 95% or more of the time.

Previously in the posing guide series articles we looked at posing female subjects, posing male subjects, posing children and posing couples. It is now time for posing groups of people.

There are usually three kinds of group shots. First are just formal shots with a large number of people. Second are more informal shots with a group of friends. And finally, photographing a group or family members. In this order, let’s look at some sample poses and posing ideas.

Hands down, the number one question I get is how to make better landscape images.
