How to submit: Create a post on PhotoBlog.com and add the tag 2017theme18

Learn and Participate:

"In Focus" can be interpreted in many ways. The main goal is to capture your subjects in focus. There are many focus methods in your camera such as fully auto, back-button, manual...etc. You can use any of these methods to capture your intended subject in focus. We would love to hear what focus method and focus mode you used in creating your 'in focus' photos. Mentioning such info is a great learning opportunity for all of us.

If you would like to read more about how to avoid out of focus photos, please read "Camera Focus Guide: How to Take Sharp Photos Every Time" by Elliot Pelling.

Changes to how we announce the weekly theme.

We have been announcing the weekly theme on 3 places so far (platform, official blog, and forum). This is probably a bit redundant and confuses members. So, moving forward, we will announce the weekly theme only on the platform. It is easily accessible by the Weekly Theme tab in the Browse Page.

Very confused. Took me awhile to find to change last week and have not been able to find anything since the change, am I missing how to find it?

I think that is a good change you have made there. Changes are good! It was a bit disorienting to switch between three platforms, so it's a good change!
