For simplicity sake:
Use the 18-55mm at 18mm to get the most DOF.
Set the camera to A mode with f11.
Set the camera to use single focus point.
Focus on someone/something in the center or a little closer towards you.
Use TTL for everything.

Agree with everything here except one.

Focusing in the "center" may not be what you want, and tyring to judge hyperfcoal distance (focus "a little closer to you") is NOT the easiest way to go.

Like I said above, focus on the person's eyes closest to you. That way, anyone who is behind the primary focus subject will be as close to the focal plane (DOF-wise) as possible.
