I put on my suit for this – or the amazing quickness of church pictures

For the past few weeks we have had the honor to take pictures for the church directory.  The old directory needed some updating since some families had moved, come in, or had recent additions.

Here is quick pic of the basic set up.


Softbox to camera left, umbrella to camera right for fill, white background – you photo geeks get the idea.

We decided to shoot everyone from the waist up – which makes life a lot easier – when the feet are not showing, you can put the kids on chairs, the short ones on boxes and make the look a little more pleasing.


For lights we use our trusted alien bees.


So we have the setup – the lights – what is missing??  Oh yes – have to have the assistants running around and adding some spice to the situation.


Here they are:



Be in Love.
