Basics of Digital Photography

Digital Photography Focusing Tips

1. Shoot with single point AF, the time when you have all the focus points enabled camera focuses on the brightest spot of your frame, so when you have single point focus you are taking control of your camera to focus on where you want to focus on plus the auto focus will be faster.

2. Shoot with AI SERVO so that your camera continuously focuses on the subject even while your subject is moving.

3. Camera focus speed also depends on the lens you are using. Use high speed lens to improve focus speed.

4. Have a external flash with Auto focus assist (AFA). AFA on your flash will help to improve auto focus speed in low light conditions.

5. Take advantage of live view mode. While using live view mode, zoom in using the zoom buttons in your camera do not zoom using lens to check if you have focused exactly where you wanted to focus.

I hope above five tips will help you in improving your focusing technique.

1. Determine how much you want the subject to be in focus (DOF)
2. Learn how to control your camera
3. Avoid shooting in harsh lighting
4. Try to frame your subject with clearer or darker background
5. When you are shooting close ups focus on eye, with single point focus.

1. Don't think about the camera that you are using.
2. Delete your photos only if there is technical faults.
3. Think about the lighting before you compose a shot.
4. Be selective about photos that you share.
5. Check the background while you are framing your subject.

1. Use the viewfinder's light meter in camera to adjust aperture and shutter speed once you have focused on a subject.
2. Use beanbag to avoid camera shakes.
3. Use right lenses based on the distance between you and the subject.
4. Frame your subject using rule of thirds to present your picture.
5. Just like distance, cameras height also matters to make your subject look proportional. Set your camera height to the eye level of your subject.

1. Always set the ISO below 400 to reduce grains in the picture.
2. Change the White Balance based on the availability of natural light.
3. Set AF Mode to AI Servo so that the focus changes/locks to your moving subject.
4. Set Drive Mode to High speed/Continues mode so that you don't miss the actions.
5. Use Tripod/Monopod to avoid camera shake.
