Focusing Techniques for Photography

- November 17, 2016



Modern DSLR cameras have a number of tools to assist with auto focus functions. One of the problems is these modes can be confusing and unintuitive if you haven’t explored the correct ways to use them.
You’ll need to consult your camera manual to see how these techniques apply to your specific make and model but in this episode I’m going to cover the two basic techniques of spot focusing and continuous (servo) focusing, when you would use these modes and the techniques around getting them to work for you.

  • Wow really this Man is spending time to help you for free and not trying to sale you crap and your going to speak in such a way how self involved can you be. Really I am appalled you should be showing him true gratitude not your shallower self centered snobbery. If you don't like him leave but keep your mouth SHUT! I think what he is doing is great.

  • Very wordy! Unnecessary 4 min introduction. Techniques and approaches referred to here are not clearly explained or explained at all. Content covered here could be done in under 3 min!
