I've been doing the arm around the shoulder, but it doesn't work well with tall people.
I try to get them to interact with either each other or with something in the environment.

If they're characters from the same series, I try to encourage them to come up with something among themselves since they will likely know more about the series than I.
If not, I'll offer generic poses or action to add a bit of life to the shot.

It's pointless to brag about equipment.
Repeat what you see in my posts and you'll sound really smart

Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are.
