How would I set up a family photo?
Nov 5, 2012

I want to get a group photo of my husband's extended family at Thanksgiving. They'll all be at his sister's house, but not all at the same time.

I'm thinking I could leave my camera and tripod set up in a spot with a fairly plain background, lock in my settings. Then get shots of various groups of people and put the images all together later.

I'd value any suggestions or hints people who've done this can offer. Particularly I haven't quite figured out how to get people into the correct positions at various different times so they don't end up getting all stacked on each other, or with the background not matched up right.
