I've been commissioned to shoot a large group photo (a society reunion) at a(n American) football stadium in about 2 months' time and am now in the process of research ahead of the shoot. My challenge is how best to capture the stadium and the group without necessarily posing the group on the bleachers or doing something cliche. I know my way around cameras and lenses and plan to bring along a fairly tall step ladder. However, I am a strong proponent of continuous learning, so I'm here to ask for tips from others who may have shot this sort of thing before. I am toying with the idea of having them pose on the grounds and form the shape of the society's initials. It will be a mid-morning shoot in the northern hemisphere so it will be summer and likely sunny. Any tips to get this done in a unique way would be very welcome! Shooting position, lenses, lighting, etc. Show and tells very welcome! Note to mods: I wasn't sure which forum to post this in, so please don't hesitate to shift this to the appropriate forum Thanks in advance!
