Dear friends,

Am helping a friend to take some group photos for his seminar at a hotel.
Normally, when i do group photo, some Delegate images become pretty blur and not clear if you blow up the image.
Can someone advice how best we can take such group photo.

Thanks

Hi Koel, am using a Canon 30D, 24-70L and a 430Ex.
Just worried that the flash might not be strong enough.
Thanks for your advice.

If ceiling is high,
24mm to 28mm, use M mode, 1/60sec, f5.6 to f8, ISO 800, flash head direct

If ceiling is low,
24mm to 28mm, use M mode, 1/60sec, f5.6 to f8, ISO 800, flash head tilted upward or 60 degree with reflector


If you use tripod and release cable, the shutter speed can set slower to 1/15 to 1/30sec.

you could bump up your ISO instead of prolonging your shutter speed if you're taking the shots handheld... though it will appear noisier, its better than having blur images especially in indoor conditions... especially if you dont have the luxury of setting up a tripod at every point of a active seminar =]

For large group like this is better to use Av mode F/8 or smaller F-stop.
Use direct flash with your wide angle filter on to have a softer fill in flash.
A tripod will be good as you will not had hand shake photo.
Hope this Help...;)

A word of caution. A tripod allows you to use a low shutter if you are shooting static subjects. For human shots, you may experience some motion blurring from your subjects thou you have eliminated handshake from yourself.

that's correct, but for formal group photos, most people will aware and keep still during the shots, can give reminders to them like "Yi Er San!! SIAO! Bu Yao Dong!!" (1! 2! 3! smile and hold still there) :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:
