I love a family get together and although it isn’t my family, I still had a great time at this one! All of these guys, plus their partners, got together at the studio to create some portrait images for mum’s birthday (she is the lady in the middle). We played around with lots of different ideas and poses and groupings – some formal and some less so. This one just made me smile – I call it the ‘Facebook Smush’ and you might well recognise it from countless Facebook profile pictures. The basic premise is that everyone gets their heads as close together as possible (and pouts a bit if it is an all female group of course). I’m not sure its exactly art, but it is fun and photography doesn’t have to be all serious all of the time.
Family Get Together in the Studio
About the Author: Steve Fisher
I am a professional Creative ~ Photographer, Videographer, Cinematographer and Drone Pilot My professional photographic career started at the tender age of 13 when I won my first commission to photograph an art collection by a local artist. It paid £50 which was reasonable money for an ambition 13 year old in 1978. I have continued to take pictures ever since, and quite simply, I couldn’t be happier! I am professionally qualified with the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) and the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP), and also the Masters Photographer Association (MPA), although I have recently decided to give up my membership of the MPA in favour of the other two associations.
