A guide to camera focus

by Ram Ya May. 01, 2017 1883 views

When we start photography, we mostly depend on camera's auto settings. However, with auto settings, the camera decides what focus point and mode to use. Often resulting in wrong part of the picture being in focus. 

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced photographer, knowing what focus mode to use for your shooting situations is crucial. Simply because you can not correct focus errors in post processing. 

We just published a guide to camera focus. Exploring focus modes, points, and methods that you can use to take a sharp image every time. I hope you find it useful. If you are a beginner I recommend you read the article with your camera next to you. So that you can practice these tips while you read the article. 

Would love to hear your opinion about these educational posts!

I was surprised to see that Elliot neglected to mention the use of the Nikon 'Live View Zoom Preview' feature, especially when performing manual focusing while using a tripod. It's a very nice trick to have in your back pocket!

Hi Kelly,
A very good point! I forgot about this when I edited too. I will ask Elliot to add this to the article.
Thanks again for your input :)

My pleasure, Ram.....

I head out on a long road trip, early in the morning, so I may be tardy/absent, commenting &/or replying, here on Photo Blog for a while.......I'll try to check in, along the way, but it will probably be pretty "sketchy"..... Catch up with you later, on down the road........
Cheers!
Jay
