Hi all, Here's the reason I'm asking this question: Say you have a group of 5-10 people, and for argument's sake let's just say DOF is not a lot w/ the settings you're shooting at. Would you line up the group in a straight line parallel to the camera's sensor, or would you bring the people standing at the outer edge a little closer to the camera to get all of them in focus (since the people at the outer edge are farther away from the camera distance-wise)? x x x x x x x x x x -----Camera----- OR -x x x x x x x x- x---------------x -----Camera----- I'm trying to find out if DOF is a fixed plane at the focus point, or if it is based on straight up distance to the sensor. I was pretty sure it's a plane, but after reading an example from a VERY reliable source (book) which suggested placing the outer people closer, it made me second guess myself. Thoughts?
