Big Groups

September 19, 2010 § Leave a comment

I actually like big groups to photograph… I like the way everyone ends up showing a bit more of themselves when they are ensconced in a crowd.  It’s like when we are one on one people can be distracted by the camera – intimidated by me getting real close looking up their nose with a lens (no I don’t ACTUALLY do that… usually).   But with a group – I’m a little farther away.  They don’t know exactly when the shutter is going.  As long as they can keep up the energy for a few seconds it ends up being just slightly candid no matter how posed I’ve got them.
