Sunday I had the pleasure of photographing a family at Phillipe Park in Safety Harbor. I love this park, with the large oak trees and stone walkways, it really has an “old Florida” feel. When posing families, I often do a series of more guided poses, followed by more creative and candid shots, depending on the family and what they are looking for. I like to set people up following the shape of a triangle using the “three triangle” pose for a single person and to pose a group of people. The shape of a triangle is one of the most pleasing and dynamic forms in all of photography and nature. Triangles provide direction and visual movement in a portrait or still life. Creating triangles in your images is one of the most basic ideas in composition, and here are a few examples from the session where I utilized this shape.
