One of the words that remained uppermost in my mind when preparing for this month’s challenge was ‘group’. I think I had this group shot in mind, they look so upbeat.
Taking photographs of groups is not just about technical know-how and preparation it is also an art form. There are the formal static poses or the more interesting staggered formations, and remembering throughout to take multiple shots and to make sure everyone’s face is visible. However even when their faces are visible and their eyes open it doesn’t mean that you know who they are 90ish years later. All of these shots are a family mystery, they’re in our albums but we have no idea who they are. Hopefully they were upstanding members of the community!
