    How to Take Pictures of a Group

      Sometimes, it takes a little more than getting everyone to smile at the same time to get a great group photo.

    Use different levels 
    The eye likes variation, so get some people sitting, some kneeling, some standing. Use props like a staircase to stagger height.
     

    Look down 
    Change the view by standing on a chair, ladder, or balcony to shoot down at the group for a more interesting perspective.
     

    Give them something to do 
    Depending on the occasion, have them jump at the same time, or throw a ball up and have them watch it.
     

    Eyes open, people 
    Have everyone close their eyes until you say, open! taking the photo as you say it.
