    Shooting groups of people

    Is there a way to avoid blurring the person in the foreground?
    Moving him is not an option.

    the picture was shot at
    ISO 400 28mm f/5.0 1/60

    Your focus point is way to far back - you might have got hit by focusing on the middle of the table @F11 or more.


    The other thing to try is changing your angle to even up everyone across the front of the lens.

    A point & shoot camera has better depth of field.

    David is on the money on all mentioned points.. F11, mid focus, and move the camera so they are all similar distances from the lens..

    Cheers

    Does it matter if he is blur? I would have thought the group will be more concerned with the mass shooting... 8-))

    Sorry, just couldn't resist!


    Cheers.
