For environmental thumbnail sketches a 14-24mm lens can work well but a go-to lens popular with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel many photographers is a 70-200mm, which can produce great perspective at the right focal to the fullest extent a finally. When working with families, particularly when shooting a little more candidly, natural light works well but do pack elemental lighting accessories such as a reflector. If you find you're out during the middle part of the day, particularly on a sunny day, find shade you can shoot in to bring to light a more even exposure. 

Why this style of photography works is because, generally, people feel more relaxed out of a studio territory which will produce better photos. Throw a bit of fun into the mix and you'll soon have a collection of images that are unique and interesting. 

Round if you know the people you are photographing it's still important to talk to them during the shoot as direction and encouragement will always be welcomed. Urge poses and always get your 'money shots' in the bag early so you can have more fun and also shoot more candidly later on. Well-founded shots to ensure you capture are images of the group as well as shots with tighter framing of individuals or one or two family members together. Direction doesn't organize to come via your voice either. You could kick a ball into a particular good patch of light or ask children to play with toys in a particular part of the landscape you're working in. Remember that children do have a short attention span so make the posing part of the shoot as precipitate as possible then leave them to play, capturing candids with your camera as they do.

Backgrounds that contrast with what your national is wearing can create vibrant images and don't get too hung up on having everyone in matching shades as a mix of colours adds interest and if they pick their own accoutrements, they'll be more comfortable.
