best f stop / aperture for a group of 20 photo
2

Hi guys, I need to shoot a football team and will have 2 rows of people, 10 sitting, 10 standing with possible 2 coaches on off to the side.

I will be using natural light

Is F9 going to cut it? or should I be aiming for F13, F16 etc

I remember I shot a session like this in the past and was at f8 and while it was quite sharp, some faces had touches of softness.

I will be shooting with an 85mm prime

if there is anyone who does this for work or has done this in the past please comment. thanks for the help.
