comment How can I improve portraits when shooting in low light without flash?
@azngunit81 There really aren't any fixed rules about it and you don't always have time to analyse and play with settings! Personally, I don't like going much below 1/30, but then my hands aren't the steadiest! I've just been having a closer look at the picture - it seems to me that the sharpest part is the person's left cuff. Because the aperture is so wide, the depth of focus is really shallow which makes picking the focus point important. It's worth setting the focus mode to "Single-point AF" (page 38 of the manual) and focusing on the subject's eyes
