Focus and Action Tip: If you are photographing a fast moving subject, pre-focus (beep) where you know the subject will be. As soon as the subject moves into the focus zone, snap away! Your camera will be much quicker at releasing the shutter because it has already done most of the job. (Don’t forget to choose a fast shutter-speed!)
Focus Point #2: Going Manual
For those who are shooting with DSLRs, you can also flip the switch on your lens to manual focus. This helps when you’re taking multiple shots and the distance from you and your subject doesn’t change.
Tripod Tip: When you are taking photos on a tripod, pre-focus your shot and then switch to manual focus. This will stop the camera from refocusing when you are ready to take the actual photo.
Make these easy tips a habit and you’ll be amazed at how quickly your photography transforms!
Do you have any past shots that haunt you because the focus was wrong? I know I do! We’d love your comments below. And, did you find this tutorial helpful? Please share it with your friends.
