The photo above was taken by Nathaniel Jude Heres (who goes by the Reddit username cuddymonster) and it might just turn out to be the next fun group photo trend. Rather than taking a standard beach shot or the nearly-impossible-to-get-everyone-in-the-shot group selfie, just toss your GoPro in the air and hope for the best! Read more…

Humor: Can This Group of 40 Get a Single Person to Take 40 Photos of Them?

There was a time, before selfies and social networks and WiFi built in to most consumer-level cameras, that getting a group shot in a busy tourist setting required two steps. Step one: ask a stranger to take your group’s photo, and Step Two: apologize profusely as, one by one, every person in your group keeps handing the kind stranger ANOTHER camera so they can have a picture too.

Those days are, for the most part, gone. But back in 2009, an Australian comedy show called The Chaser’s War on Everything had some fun with ‘step two.’ Read more…

Video: Sports Illustrated’s ‘Boston Strong’ Cover Shoot with Greg Heisler

Two days ago was the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, and in true Boston spirit, the city came out in force to show that this tragedy had not stolen, but rather strengthened its spirit.

The slogan Boston Strong has been adopted by the city’s residents, and last Saturday Sports Illustrated and photographer Greg Heisler got together with a crowd of over 3,000 Bostonians to capture this slogan on film for this week’s cover of SI. Read more…

Groopic Combines Multiple Group Shots So the Photographer is Never Left Out

You might have run into this problem before: you’re out with a group of friends and someone suggests a group shot. At this point, as the resident photographer of the group, several smartphones will probably be passed your way, leading to several good photos, all of them missing you.

You could always ask a stranger to take the group photo, but the picture might not turn out right and you might prefer avoiding that interaction altogether. Thankfully, with Groopic, now you can. Read more…

Five Friends Take the Same Group Photo for 30 Years

Back in 1982, 19-year-old five buddies — John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney, John Molony, and John Dickson — went on vacation to Copco Lake in California and snapped a group photo (seen above). Since then, they’ve embarked on the same vacation every 5 years, staying at the same cabin, sitting on the same bench, and snapping the same photo (with identical poses and all). They’re 48-years-old now, and the tradition is still going strong.

Throw Your Camera into the Air for a Group Photo from Above

You’ve probably heard of tossing your camera into the air for abstract light painting photos, but what about for actual photos? Wedding photographer Mike Larson shoots group photos from above — with himself in the shot — by throwing a DSLR and fisheye lens into the air and letting the timer trigger the shutter. You can find some examples of photos made using this technique over on Larson’s website.

If you do try your hand at camera toss photos, make sure you have awesome hand-eye coordination and that you’re standing on soft ground (e.g. grass, cotton balls, marshmallows).

Magnum Photographer Group Portrait

How do a group of the world’s premier photographers shoot a group portrait? Well, just like the rest of us! This short one minute video shows photographer RenĂ© Burri — who made iconic photos of Che Guevara and Pablo Picasso — shooting the group portrait at the end of this year’s meeting between Magnum Photo members (something he’s done for 30 years).

Kudos to anyone who can identify the camera Burri used and the people in the group photo shown at the end.
