Hi All,

I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to give me some advice on shooting a large group of people.

One thing to watch for is deformations induced when you are shooting with a wide angle lens. I know women who never forgave me for how they looked on some group pictures I had taken !

Seriously, people standing in peripheral position will have wider proportions than those at the center. It is therefore very important to have enough distance towards the group you are shooting so that you can use a "standard" or "mid long" lens. If this is impossible and you have to use a wide-angle, then I think that you can still improve the final shot look by using a program like DxO Viewpoint. Never used it though.
