When you’re shoot­ing mov­ing sub­jects you need to choose the right fo­cus mode to keep them sharp. Here’s how…

NPhoto - - 10 Things To Master -

There are three main aut­o­fo­cus modes on Nikon D-SLRs: sin­gle, con­tin­u­ous and au­to­matic. If you want to track a mov­ing sub­ject you need to se­lect the con­tin­u­ous aut­o­fo­cus­ing mode (AF-C). In this mode the cam­era will con­tin­u­ously ad­just the fo­cus when­ever the shut­ter re­lease is half­pressed, en­abling it to track sub­jects that are mov­ing to­wards or away from your cam­era. but it still gives you the high­est hit rate of any AF mode for mov­ing sub­jects. Once you have cho­sen AF-C mode, the cam­era will au­to­mat­i­cally ad­just the fo­cus for as long as you keep the shut­ter re­lease half-pressed. To use this mode suc­cess­fully, it’s im­por­tant to keep the fo­cus point po­si­tioned over the sub­ject for as long as pos­si­ble, oth­er­wise the cam­era will fo­cus on an­other part of the scene, and you’ll then need to re­frame and re­fo­cus, which can mean that you miss the per­fect mo­ment.
