Focusing is one of the most important things you do when taking photos. If you get it wrong, there’s no effective way to fix it.
No matter how advanced sharpening tools in image editing software have become, there’s none that can truly fix an out-of-focus photo.
Make sure your images are sharp where you want them to be. This needs to be done before you press the shutter button. It will ensure that your photo’s most significant element(s) will be in crisp focus.
Choosing the appropriate part of your composition to focus on is essential. Being slightly off target usually results in a picture destined for the trash. You need to focus on your focal point.
This guide is looking at what part of your composition to focus on.
Here is what’s covered:
- Including an easily identified focal point adds impact
- Determining the focal point in a scene
- If there are eyes on the subject, they should almost always be in focus
- Experimenting with moving the critical focus to different parts of the frame
- Managing the focal point in different depth of field (DOF) scenarios
- Managing your autofocus system
