I am Derrick Story, and welcome to Photo Assignment: Group Shots. This is a situation we find ourselves in all the time where we have a group of people, they want a photograph, and you're the person that's going to take it. So why not get the best shot possible? I'm going to show you how to use flashes and modifiers so that technically the shot looks good. I am also going to show you how to position the subjects of your shot so that you have a nice composition. Also, we have a Flickr public group set up so that when you practice your shots, you can share them with other people and you can see the work that other folks are doing also.
I'm really looking forward to showing you some of the things that I've learned over the years in this photo assignment, group shots.
