Whether it's a group photo at a corporate event, a kids' sports team or a family portrait there are many creative ways to show your "team spirit."

Different ways of lining up a group for a portrait are one way to make you stand out from the crowd.

How about yelling a cheer instead of a standard smile?

What about including the scene or background as an equal part of the portrait?

A few other things to think about when eating up a group portrait:

  • When is a good time to take the portrait? Pick a time that your group is either already going to be together and not rushing off to go anywhere else.
  • Do you have signature colors, a theme or a mascot that you want to include in the photo?
  • What feeling or message are you trying to share with others?

There are general rules of thumb that you can follow for taking a group photo but don't let that keep you from making your group show why it's more than just a collection of faces.
