2012 Portraits #3
group photos, and many times there are 15-30 people so the steps in front are about the only option for getting that many people into the shot. Another common thing is that to accommodate everyone's schedule, the shot has to take place at noon or some other time when the sun is high and light is really awful in this spot. Just so happened on this shoot, the best time for everyone was 7:30 a.m. So having some nice soft light to work with I moved the group of plastic surgeons about 40-50 feet away of the building and used the facade as more of a backdrop; also added a little fill flash from two SB800s in front (about 1/16 power each). Finals were 26mm, f/6.3, 1/125 sec; flashes triggered with the pop-up.
