Avoid shadows. Whether one person's face is in another's shadow or if they have a hat on will really affect the image and could make faces unrecognizable.
Do not get too close. A close-up is great on the wall in ten inches by ten inches. However, on a blanket that is over four feet wide, it verges on scary.
It is equally important not to be too far away. If you have trouble seeing the faces we will have the same problem and the outcome will reflect that.
Have as few people as possible in the picture. The fewer people you have, the more likely you are to get a good, clear image of everyone in the photo. In addition, this can help you get larger, better quality images of the people that you do have in the picture.
Obviously, basic photography points like having enough lighting and centering the desired object are also important.
