There are a few simple steps you take to make a great street party photo.
Firstly, find a suitable spot to gather everyone together for your photo. This could be around the party table or in front of it or under some flags and bunting.
Check for the sunlight, as you don't want people facing straight into the sun and squinting. If it's a really bright sunny day either move them into the shade or place your group with their backs to the sun and switch on your flash to fill in the shadows.
Place small children and short people at the front of the group with the taller ones towards the back.
If the group is a really large, try to get some height so that you can see everyone's faces. Use a stepladder or a chair to stand on so that you can see them all. Rearrange people if you need to so that no-one gets left out.
A wide angle lense will help to fit everyone into the frame.
To give your picture some extra zip look out for anyone dressed in a colourful costume or wacky hat. Bring them to the front of your picture so that you can see them clearly. You can also take some individual shots of people who have made extra effort and look really great.
Get everyone to cheer at the camera, waving their flags and hats, so that it shows a happy and colourful display of people enjoying themselves. Take several pictures so that you can pick the best one. When you photograph lots of people together, some will have their eyes closed or people may be blocking others when they have their arms in the air.
