i've had my canon 500D for a few months now, but i'm still pretty much a noob
the problem i'm experiencing at the moment would be DOF! i do like DOF, & its really good for artistic shots and all, but sometimes i just want an entirely sharp picture!!
for example, i'd like to take group shots of people without having one or two persons with blur DOF-ed faces it really irks me when i find shots like that.
most of the time when i take these kind of shots i use centre-focusing, but it doesn't really help.
any of you clubsnappers out there know the solution?
P.S. i know raising the aperture no. kills the DOF, but its really impossible for me to shoot with high no. aperture unless i use a tripod! and i can't possibly bring a tripod out with me all the time :/.
