D5200 + 35mm f/1.8: aperture for group indoor shots?
Mar 1, 2014

Good morning everyone.

I will be going to a small party today and want to take a couple of group shots of the guests.  The most depth I am probably going to need in focus is two rows of people.  Would there be any recomendations for an aperture setting for these kinds of shots?  I know wide open would be way too much since I'd get maybe one set of eyes and a nose in focus, lol.

I'll bracket the shots either way, but I'd love to know what a good starting spot will be.
