We recently photographed a conference at the Seattle Sheraton for corporate client Savers. One of our missions was to take a group portrait of all 350 conference attendees We discovered that a 20-foot-tall ladder was just high enough to get a photographer above the group. Red Box Pictures photographer Andy Rogers expertly directed the crowd into a symmetrical shape from his perch on the ladder’s apex. He shot multiple frames to achieve a single photo where almost everyone was looking in the right direction, with eyes open. For those who blinked or looked away, he cloned their head from a different frame using Adobe Photoshop. Four studio strobes were bounced off the ceiling of the large hotel ballroom to light the group evenly.
