How to get your pictures in focus



If you have ever gone out to take photos only to be disappointed when you pop that memory card into your computer and find image after image that is soft or out of focus, you’ll want to tune in.

This episode covers four main strategies for getting your photo sharp and in focus including:

  • Shutter Speed
  • Aperture
  • Lens Choice
  • Photography Gear
  • and Goal Setting

You are not alone. You are most definitely not the only person this happens to. Even the masters, the experts the pros that have been at it for years will miss focus every once in awhile.  The Good news is, it will happen less and less. The more aware you are of the things you can do to help fix it the better. The more you practice at it the better you’ll get.
