Re: tips for aperture / focus for shooting a group shot in low light

You didn't mention your ISO. Unless your camera can do focus stacking, you need more depth of field and even with face detection, the lens can only focus in one spot and give you depth of field from that spot. Just crank up the ISO and shoot at f4 to f5.6.
