I have a question regarding shooting a family portrait. I’m fairly new to photography, so here goes. This Saturday I will attend a family party. I would like to take a family portrait with a few I relatives that live out of state and I haven’t seen in a long time, in all we should be abot 8 people, including small children . The Shot I’m thinking is a few standing and a few sitting hopefully the restaurant will have curtains or a solid color wall I can use as as a backdrop. I’m sure lighting will be low.
What I have to work with is a Canon T2i and a 15-85mm , 55-250mm, and 50mm 1.8 lens. As well as a 430 ex II and a Tripod. Any suggestions on how I should shoot this? Should I use a flash or not? I appreciate any suggestions and sorry for the Noob question!
