This has always confused me, i suppose it address slightly head hopping and scene change. In a story written in 3rd person, if the MC or at least Character whose has the main focus of the scene leaves the scene (like: go indoors or outside to get air) leaving other characters to chat (to further the plot), would it constitute a scene change even if the "background" scene is the same? Example: 3 people are talking outside in a field next to a tent Adam (MC and focus) John and Malcolm (awesome name i know). Adam feeling tired goes inside the tent leaving John and Malcolm to talk (behind his back). Even though they are still in the field would this be classed as a scene change or would this be a time where changing the focus to one of the others.
