What is the best way to make my photos all in focus. Backround and front of photo. I have a Canon rebel XT.

Use the smallest aperture possiblefor a suitable shutter speed and focus on something 1/3 way into the scene.

Also read books on photographic techniques.:-)

Use the Av setting and set aperture to a high number. This may mean your shutter speed will be lower and your pictures may blur due to camera shake. If so, use flash.

Zooming out and stepping back are other ways to achieve greater depth of field (more in focus).

In addition to using a smaller aperature, you can also use a wider angle lens.
