[font color=\'#000000\']I know this question isn't related to landscape photography, but I am sure there are many people here who do other types of photo work and might have some suggestions or ideas to help me.
Every year the extended family likes to have group and family photos taken. Now that I have a D60, guess who gets the job of taking the photos? Yep, me. This is quite different for me since I usually shoot landscape, birds, and wildlife. I've done a little portrait work, mostly one or two people.
My question is about the background. I have a background stand and a roll of blue background paper. I'm not sure that this will be the best for a large group. There are 12 adults and 7 children (3 of which are under 6 months). I have seen Muslin background cloth advertised and thought this might be a nice alternative. Something dark with subtle colors or designs. What do you think or suggest? Does the Muslin work? Are wrinkles or folds a problem?
Thank for you help.
