Posing Siblings

  1. I'm going to be photographing four siblings (3 boys and 1 girl, ages 11, 17, 20 and 21), they're doing it as a present for their parents. Any ideas on different ways of posing them?
     
  2. With four, you can never go wrong with a dimond configuration. Are these going t be in studio, or outdoor? If outdoors, a short wall, or fence is a good way to pose groups with some natural looking stagering. Maybe go with an oval formation with their heads. The the boys sitting in a field just about twilight in a pyramid design, with the girl laying infront works well to for a more formal outdoor shot.
    Indoors, I would use two stools placed tandom and make a diamond formation.

  3. Thanks Andy! Those are great ideas thank you so much. The pictures are going to be outdoors in a park. I'm also wondering how to get some candid shots after I do the more formal poses.
     
  4. You can also line them up against a fence or a wall, say from tallest to shortest or oldest to youngest, and shoot from an angle so that one is closest to you and then the others form a nice line to the back corner of the image. Hope I explained that well enough.
