Hi everyone, I am having a slight problem with using my 35L as a snapshot lens under dim restaurant lights. The problem happens only if I need to take a picture of 2 or more people, and try to get all subjects in focus.
Since the 35 is pretty wide on a 5d, to capture a stomach and above shot I am about 2-3 feet away from the subject. Since I am so close, my dof is extremely small even if I am using f/3.2 .
I am already using iso3200 and manually choosing focus points to avoid dof shift from "focus and recompose". Most of the time I cannot maintain enough shutter speed if I stop down further.
It gets me frustrated when thin dof is working against me. Anyone using this combo for snapshots experience this? Thanks!!
