1.in what area is critique to be sought?
I will like feedback on the technical settings on the camera when taking a group shot in low light.
2.what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Pretty much a basic group shot, but I would like to obtain best technical results.
What should be done:
1. Shoot on tripod (didn't have one with me)
2. Shoot with flash (yes, with SB800, increased the power)
3. Now the next question is, shoot with f2.8 ISO400-800, or shoot with f9 ISO1250-1600? Worries about the sharpness/depth of field, thus shot with f8.0 Shutter 1/50 ISO1250, but turned out the noise pretty bad. Would you guys have shot in f2.8 instead? (was standing 8-10meters away)
3.under what circumstance is the picture taken?
Old school 10 year anniversary.
Shot with D300 with 14-24mmf2.8 at 19mm. Set exposure to -1/3, and increased the exposure on PP. Shutter speed was 1/50, and f8.0. Standing about 8-10 meters away.
Would have taken mulltiple shots but situation didn't allow it.
4.what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Group shot that can be improved in noise/sharpness. Should straighten the shot too, and perhaps correct WB, but that's easily done PP. (More interested in your opinions on the techical aspects of the photo.)
