Hi, I currently only have Sony A700+lens (16-80mm)+Flash (Model: 36) is it enough for taking group photo on D&D for my company in the Hotel?

If yes, what f-stop should I set to?


Thanks in advance for the advice.:embrass:

Try
Focal length : widest
Mode : Manual
Shutter Speed : 1/60sec
Aperture : f5.6 to f8.0
ISO : 800 to 1600
Image type : RAW or JPEG
Flash Head Position: For low ceiling, tilt the flash head 60/70 degree upward with bounce card/diffuser. For high ceiling, flash head direct.

When to shoot ? Say '1' and shoot. Some people tend to close eyes at count number 3.

Also if at night, i recommend Manual focus. Autofocus is kinda slow and tricky at low light conditions.

Usually there is no 1 universal settings that work under all conditions. You just have to do trial and error until you get it.

Megaweb gave you a good starter, but don't be afraid to deviate from it, if necessary. The equipment you have is good and sufficient.
