A mother and her two daughters. This group portrait was taken outdoors in their backyard.
Taken same day but using Ilford Pan-F B&W film. Since I have multiple cameras, I can take pictures using color, slide or black and white film all at the same time. The three of them wanted black and white images in addition to color prints so I took along a 2nd camera loaded with Ilford B&W film. Each photographic medium has a different quality. There are times when B&W film is actually superior than a color image.
I also do High School Portraits for people. In this case Maria did a few costume changes.This allows a person lots more images to choose from. These were taken outdoors and in one image I had an assistant hold up my backdrop while I took the picture.
(Taking pictures of a family reunion would fall under my Assignment category work.)
We can also arrange it to meet at a site (outdoors or indoor location) where you want your portrait taken.
For this couple we met at the Rose Garden on a Sunday afternoon and used
that location to take pictures.
