Hi, I'm a new Canon 500D user and I'm struggling with a focusing issue and am hoping to find some advice here.
I started off using the camera with Auto AF point selection and noticed that the camera kept picking up the wrong points to focus on. So I have switched to a single centre AF point now.
When I'm taking a portrait of a single person, I focus the point at the eyes and then recompose, no issues. But when I'm taking a portrait of 3 persons indoors, where should I point at to ensure all 3 persons are focused sharply in the picture? I use Av mode. I can't use A-DEP because I cannot manage the slow shutter speed.
I usually shoot at a larger f for groups. But in situations where I have to shoot in low light indoor environments and flash photography is not allowed and tripods are not possible, I am forced to shoot in f2.8 or lower (I can't manage the slow shutter speed if f is higher), how do I take a portrait photo of 3 persons and ensure that all 3 are focused?
