I am struggling taking photos with multiple subjects and keeping them all in focus. It seems like my camera can only focus on one face/subject at a time. Is there a way to focus on multiple faces in one shot? I did a shoot with my two children this morning - good light, indoors. I used the following settings: ISO 200 to 320, AF-S, matrix metering, and I tried switching back and forth between Single Point & Auto Area AF. I used anywhere from f/1.8 to 2.5 for my aperture. Any ideas on why only one of the two subjects were in focus in any given shot? Is there a way I can add one of the photos as an example?
Also, I will be doing a photoshoot for a group of 8 this month, outdoors. I have a 50mm lens I will be using. Any tips for getting all 8 people in focus without loosing the sharpness and good light?
THANK YOU in advance!
