    My question now is, should I rely on a single focus point or multiple and let the camera decide?

    My only reserve about that approach is having it ruin the focus on a great composition or an important moment by picking the wrong focus points. Then again using a single point and recomposing could cost me a valuable shot due to lost time.

    What's your take on this?
    Depends on the camera one has, and the focusing system, as well as one's familiarity and proficiency with said AF system. At longer distances, focus isn't nearly as critical as it is at close ranges. If you have a color-aware Nikon that can spot human skin tones by its analysis of RGB values and face detection, AF is "one thing"...if you have a color-blind Canon Rebel, it is "another thing entirely". The lens or lenses in use can also play a part.
    I have a Canon 550D :-(

    Same. Sometimes i change the focal point depending on what is behind the subject.

    I am not having much knowledge in Photography but having a friend who is a professional in this. The photography plays a major role in any occasion or an event and provides everlasting memories and remains as a great feel for our entire life. The details posted here are very interesting and I felt very for this sharing here. I would like to share some suggestions on behalf of my friend revealing his thoughts and ideas in the forum.
