Practice Changing the Active AF Point

Mastering the controls on your camera allows you to get the shot even when working under pressure. Practice moving the focus points around the frame so that you can do it without looking at the camera.

Learn Your Camera Features

Each of the camera brands and models has different features and controls. Learn which settings control the AF points on your camera by reading the camera manual or picking up one of the camera-specific Snapshots to Great Shots books.

Shoot the Scene with Different AF Points

Shoot the same scene but move the focus point. This will change the focus of the image and can change the entire feel of the image. It’s important to see what can happen with just a small change in where the camera focuses.
