Have always been challenged by night shots. Late last year wanted to take candids and people pics at a night (outside) and so purchases aEF 50mm 1:1.8 - I know it's at low end of market but this was 1st additional to 550D kit . Did not know much about the and as not had any practice I just used in Auto. While party was under blue fairy lights I was totally disappointed in shots - mainly due to clarity - some color issues. In early July ( had not seen the of day since Dec due to issues) I decided to try it again this time in a restaurant at night. Again I was disappointed in quality of shots. I am obviously doing a few few things wrong but at other times it seems to lack clarity when focus should have been right?
I used an of 2.
I would like to be able to have a shot of 2-3 people at a time but this most always may mean they are/may be at different distances from camera. To achieve this is it a simple matter of a higher app and therefore does this negate the benefit of buying the quick ? I would also prefer no flash but that means more challenges.
Included 3 samples which seem to have reduced clarity due to resizes.
The 1st shot actually has the best overall look but still not as clear as I would have thought. The second does not have any area focused correctly and 1 focus point is on the male. The 3rd has the best focus of any shot which is the girl in front. The rest are out of the .
Any help appreciated.
