Tip for Posing Group Portraits
By Scott Kelby
Excerpts from The Digital Photography Book, Volume 2

The next time you’re shooting a group portrait, rather than lining everybody up in rows (which you should know doesn’t look good), instead try to get them to rally around something — some object — and they’ll arrange themselves naturally around it.

Fathers Day Group Shot

For example, try posing people in and around a couch, a column, a chair, a car, a desk, or any object that can pull them together into a group that isn’t just a bunch of people standing in straight lines.
