Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is one of the few images I managed to capture during our ad-hoc family reunion in Preston.
What is not visible in the photo is heated debate we’ve had in regards to where is best location to take the photo. A few things to consider: my mum just had hip surgery a week before, my stepfather had a stroke a few years ago and can’t stand up still for too long, my daughter started crying, one of my sisters hate having me taking her photo because 10 years ago I took a photo of her and I didn’t pay attention and her hat wasn’t properly adjusted. Usually, the most challenging task is trying to capture a 9 months old baby looking at the camera, but that wasn’t the case because my nephew loves the camera.
I had my iPhone 11 Pro on small tripod, on top of a chair, on top of a small table and set the timer to 10 seconds. The light was coming through a large window on the other side of the room, illuminating everyone evenly. Luckily the second shot was a success. What a relief!
With the group photo out of the way, everyone felt more relaxed and happy to take a few more images, just for fun.
The entire session didn’t take longer that 15 minutes. I will print some of the images and cherish them for years to come.
