Our local guild is almost 220 years old and has about 60 members in all ages. This year, they are organizing a large event where many more guilds will be participating.
An image of the whole guild is made only once in adecade or so. This time it was my turn to make it.
We did all the praparations we could; most members were present, a podium was made and several people were there to help me out.
I had the group turned with their backs towards the sun to avoid everybody squinting their eyes and to give a nice contour around the hats and upper bodies.
One thing I did underestimate however; the power of the sun.
I had 4 small flashes to fill the shadows but they proved to be way too weak to compensate for the sun.
It took quite some work in prostprocessing to get this result.
