Pentax KP - Best AF Hold setting?

Hi!

What AF hold valu works best for you with the KP?
I am specially but not only interested in portraits of walking people (for example at weddings).

In general I use AF-C with SEL-4 (all AF points) and without AF Hold, but I think it's not ideal.
Thanks in advance!

Hold AF is helpful if your subject can unexpectedly move out of the frame, so it sounds like it might be worth trying in your case.

I have problems when my subject is relative small in the frame or has space between them. In general AF finds them, but then jumps to somewhere else.
It's good to set it to high or the medium and low values are also reasonable?
