After deciding the place, you are required to check the lighting system of the place where the photos are to be taken. Lights are a very important factor in the taking of good pictures at home and if the lights at the place are not sufficient, then the quality of the pictures will surely be affected in the negative manner.
After getting done with the lights, you have to make an arrangement for the picture. This involves the style in which the people have to stand or sit for the shoot.
After deciding the posture and the position in which you are to be seated or standing, next you must be looking to make the poses that are required for the pictures and shots. A good pose must also be accompanied by a decent smile as the smile plays the most vital part in the photos. A photo without the smile will be a very dull one.
