    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    I'm was just appointed un-official editor of photography for my schools newspaper. un-official because I'm not actually in the teacher really liked my pictures and they don't have anyone else to do it.

    So I'm looking for some basic tips on shooting groups of people at dances school events and that sort of thing.

    My first assignment is a big pep rally tmrw in the gym.

    Thanks guys

    That's a pretty general question, so it's going to get a pretty general answer:

    Groups of people are a problem, because they'll all be doing different things. This is where the traditional "say cheese!" thing comes in to play. Get them all to shout/say something and look at you.

    Make sure there's enough light - people move. This may mean investing in a good flash gun, or pushing up your ISO and widening your aperture. If you have access to any of these halls, get down them with a friend and check the lighting and try and take some shots of a friend.
