I have been contracted by my sister's basketball team (a Division 1 program) to take their team photos, group photos, family photos, and head shots. It is my first really big/important shoot.
I am going to be purchasing the Canon 24-70 mm lens tomorrow. I currently have a Tamron 28-75 mm lens and I pretty much hate it, and it was time to upgrade.
What are some good settings/apertures to take group shots at so that a front row of people is not a different focus from a back row?
If anyone could also show any examples of groups that they took, that would be really great! (Especially if they are athletic groups!)
