Make sure you have a freshly-for­mat­ted mem­ory card in your cam­era to be­gin with: you’ll take a lot of pho­tos, and it’ll be use­ful if they’re all on one card.

Try to get ev­ery­one wear­ing a limited se­lec­tion of colours. With so many faces to look at, you don’t need lots of colours adding to the con­fu­sion.

Head of Test­ing | D7100


Tripods and small chil­dren don’t mix! Never leave your cam­era un­ac­com­pa­nied on a stand when there are small peo­ple run­ning around the place.

Wait un­til ev­ery­one’s had time to re­lax a bit and chat. If you start tak­ing pho­tos straight away, they’ll be less at ease and pose more rigidly.

You have to be bossy, or peo­ple will ‘or­gan­ise’ them­selves into all sorts of awk­ward groups. Make sure the shorter ones come to

the front for the pic­ture!

There are all sorts of lights in homes – yel­lowy bulbs in par­tic­u­lar – and if you shoot in RAW you’ll be able to change the white bal­ance later.
