EX­PERT IN­SIGH T Fo­cus with care

NPhoto - - The Apprentice -

Tim says… You need to fo­cus your night shots with spe­cial care. The cam­era’s aut­o­fo­cus may not work so well af­ter dark, par­tic­u­larly if there is no bright, clearly lit ob­ject un­der the fo­cus point. You can use man­ual fo­cus, but don’t just turn the fo­cus ring as far as it will go and as­sume that’s in­fin­ity, be­cause some cheaper con­sumer lenses fo­cus past that point and you’ll get a soft-look­ing im­age. Fo­cus­ing by eye us­ing the viewfinder is not very re­li­able, so use Live View in­stead. You can zoom in to show a mag­ni­fied view and fo­cus with great ac­cu­racy, though you do need rel­a­tively good light.
