    What were the shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings?

    20mm Panasonic lens.
    Aperture priority
    f1.7
    1/50th second
    ISO 800

    The nearest person was sitting next to me and was about half a meter from the lens.

    Yes, I had a burger with avacados. Some of the others had ribs or bbq chicken. Very tasty. It was for my wife's sister's 25th anniversary.

    Hmmmmmm...... looks like a tough lighting situation. I was thinking that the shot would work better if the lady closest to you was just in a little sharper focus like the third lady down. I thought you could maybe have gotten more depth of field by increasing the ISO and stopping the aperture down. However, it seems like you were at close quarters, in a dark room and already at ISO 800 just to get a 1/50th of a second shutter speed. I might have used my beer glass as a tripod, stopped the aperture down and tried a longer shutter speed or maybe asked the ladies to move closer together. In any case, congratulate your wife's sister on her 25th anniversary for me. :smile:

    The lady next to me was trying desparately to avoid having her picture taken at all. She is the mother-in-law of the blond lady on the other end.
