Portraits are challenging, but when you throw more than one or two people into the mix, they take on a whole new difficulty.

For this month’s challenge, we want you to make a great photo of a group of people. First, check out this awesome collection of tips from professional photographers on how to pull it off. Then, gather up some friends (or strangers, or whoever, really) and make them look great together.

The finalists will be featuerd here on and the winner gets $100 and their photo published in the pages of Popular Photography Magazine.
