Hello Experts,

I am asked take a large group portrait (40-50 people)for an event in a 30 ft (depth) X 60 ft (wide) X 10 ft (height) tent. I am using a D800/tripod/SB900 and 14-24mm (with 24-70mm back up)to cover the large group.

I appreciate if you can give some advice about the Do and Don't and the setup of the camera and lens.

I just got the Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 and seem like the DoF is not that great even if I used it at F11. My cheap and old 17-250 Tamron gave me better result. Did I do any thing wrong or lens problem?

Thanks in advances for your advice
