Creative Endless Portrait of a Family

If you’re in need of a creative idea for a portrait of your family, check out this one by Flickr user Tu Do — it’s like the “Inception” of family portraits.

I’ve seen a few of “endless” portraits but generally they’re of the same person, which is pretty boring. So I thought of doing a family portrait haha. If you can’t figure it out it’s my dad, followed by my mom, then me, and finally my little brother; repeat. All shot at f/3.5 with an sb-600 bounced at 1/8th power. [#]

This would also be a neat idea for family members across generations (e.g. grandfather, father, son, etc…).

    Actually it would be cooler if the parents were together holding a portrait containing all of their kids who were holding portraits containing their kids etc. More like a family tree. Great idea.

    Very cool idea, however you can not have too many persons in one portrait.
    After the 3rd level you will probably not see much detail anymore…
