If you are like me, this coming holiday weekend means more than the beginning of summer and the opening of the local pool and the digital photography that always goes with those events. It’s also about getting together with family and the photographic opportunities -and difficulties- that those situations present.
But this weekend, that idea is bigger than usual for me because my massive extended family is getting together for a first-in-a-decade family reunion. And there are a LOT of us!
As the unofficial family photographer, I’m sure that I’ll be asked to snap some big group shots. So this post from the Digital Photography for Moms site is just in the nick of time:

It's that time of year again! Time for holiday fun and family gatherings.
And it's a great time to capture your family in a group portrait.
Here are some tips for shooting a great group photo:
One of the biggest new enhancements in the latest version of both Lightroom and ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) is the addition of Luminance and Color range masking.
Range masking allows you to limit the area of your image that is affected by local adjustments based on a range of colors or tones within your image. And, best of all, the masking is totally non-destructive and re-editable.
All images tell a story. But it isn't always the story we want to tell.
Selective focus is a simple but powerful technique that can help you control the narrative by managing which part of your image stands out and which part doesn't. And with that, the story behind your images becomes clearer.
