Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
I have a Nikon D80 and when I take a group picture of approx. 6 across, the people on the end are out of focus. What am I doing wrong?
For group photo happiness:
* Use the widest angle available on your zoom lens for group shots. Longer focal lengths make the depth-of-field problem worse. Step closer to the group to fill the frame.
* Use a moderate aperture, somewhere between f/5.6 and f/11. f-stops beyond f/11 can make more things appear to have the same amount of focus, but actual resolution drops due to diffraction.
* Arrange the group so that all the faces are at or near the same plane, and your camera is perpendicular to that plane. So, if P is a person, C is your camera, and - is just space,
* Using fill-in flash can improve the look of outdoor portraits.

Hi ....what aperature are you using?? Group photos often need a an F-stop of 14 or higher... meaning smaller aperature. This of course requires good light and a tripod, though. It just sounds like you need a larger depth of field.
