Hi all,
I have 1 question regarding estimate distance, is there any way to estimate how much minimum distance that we need to have in order to capture object object (for example a row of 20 people) using certain focal length (example 28mm)? I just wondering because I think this is quite important (at least for me).

I'm not sure how I do it, once I see the size of group, I can move to a position without second thought or lift up the camera, which the widest angle of my lens able to cover.

maybe you just need more practice.
