Whether you’re skiing with friends or with the family, souvenir photos are always important. Here’s a couple of quick tips to make your group photos really perfect.
Catch the right moment. Start taking photos before you‘ve let the object of your photos know – and carry for a bit after they think you’ve stopped, too. Then the people in your photos won’t look so staged, and natural photos are the best.
The poses. If you’re photographing a group of three, the person in the middle should always be a bit more in front than the other two. If you’re taking a picture of five people, the best thing is to put them in a row – but not too straight. Ideally in front of a simple, monotone background.
Don’t be shy. Encourage physical contact in the group – touch makes the picture look warmer and more intimate.
Edit your photos. And once again we recommend VSCO for post-production editing. But if you’d really like to try something else, Darkoom Photo Editor (don’t laugh, that’s really what it’s called) also works well. Both programmes have great filters which you can add to the photos afterwards.
