Well, I made it through (i think).. Here are some of the results.. The little ones definitely made it a challenge. The person organizing basically had his ideas of ho he wanted the posing to be done. I just made a few gentle suggestions, but overall I think it was OK..

It was definitely a struggle to get lighting even and color even. The kids on the floor have a golden cast.. So, on seeing the results - any advice for how I could've lit this better, set up the poses better - whatever... I'm all ears...

Results below - some basic PP done (cropping - left some wide to allow options for different picture sizes, some levels):


Thanks again to everyone for all the advice!

When those delightful family pics are viewed in the years to come, nobody's going to worry about the lighting......they'll be too busy enjoying them!



You did a fine job and I would've been proud to get a result as good as that!!

Regards and Merry Christmas to you all.

A bit late to comment but would have been better with more even lighting from both RHS and LHS and both lights elevated (looking down a bit). Stronger lighting here is from too low on LHS projecting rear shadows and more shadow on subjects left faces.

Lots of good info at "strobist" web site.
