Group photo is one of the very common shooting themes. The shooting of group photo seems simple, but the problems that need attention are not less than other shooting themes. If you are not careful, there will be some imaging problems, resulting in a decrease in the image perception . What skills do you need to take a group photo? Let us take a look at it.
focus plane position

Although we usually use focus to refer to the position where the focus is in focus, we will find that in fact, the whole plane is clear in the picture, not just one point. Taking the camera sensor as the standard, a surface parallel to the camera sensor where the focus is located will be clear. When taking a group photo, we can take advantage of this imaging feature, try to keep the camera sensor and the subject parallel, so that we can try to ensure that the characters in the picture remain in the focal plane to ensure that the portrait is clear.
Depth of Field Range

Above we learned about the influence of the focal plane on group photo shooting. In fact, the depth of field is closely related to group photo shooting. In fact, the focal point has depth, and the range of depth of field will be affected by the three parameters of aperture, current shooting focal length, and distance of the subject. Using this imaging principle, these parameters can be adjusted appropriately when shooting two or more rows of group photos, so that the depth of field is deeper, multiple rows of people can be in focus, and the picture performance is improved.
Selection of focal length
NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S
Generally speaking, the choice of focal length needs to be judged according to the number of photographers, most of the group photo shooting can choose between 24mm-70mm Shooting at the focal length. For group photos of dozens or even hundreds of people, affected by the perspective relationship and other factors, it is more difficult to complete the shooting at one time. Usually, multiple photos are combined with software in the post-shooting period to ensure that the people participating in the group photo are as clear as possible. When shooting, you can try to use the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S for shooting. This lens uses 2 low-dispersion lenses with good chromatic aberration compensation and 4 aspherical lenses with good chromatic aberration compensation. It achieves a good picture quality presentation, compensates for distortion and other optical errors as much as possible, and ensures the quality of the shooting picture.
The above are some techniques for group photo shooting, I hope to help you with your shooting.
