While the best photography isn’t always about the gear you have with you, your group photography results will improve greatly if your kit consists of a few select items. With the following gear, you will be on your way to mastering group photos.
Camera with tilting screen - This is important if you are also posing in your group photos, as it allows you to fine-tune your framing and not rely on guest work. If you are using your smartphone, a front-facing camera is your best friend here.
Tripod - Tripods are great for cutting down on camera shake, and keeping your framing and composition exact as you think through your shot. They are essential if you are among the members of the group being photographed. Tripods are great, whether you use a DSLR or Mirrorless camera, and even for your Smartphone.
