Fo­cus point

NPhoto - - Over To You -

Fo­cus­ing is a very im­por­tant part of pho­tog­ra­phy – some would say the most im­por­tant part. If you shoot in Raw you can ad­just ex­po­sure, white bal­ance and tonal val­ues after the fact, but if your fo­cus is out, the whole shot is un­re­cov­er­able.

How­ever, the rea­son we don’t show this along­side the EXIF data is usu­ally down to space. That, and the fact that in most shots it’s quite ob­vi­ous where the fo­cus point lies. But in sit­u­a­tions where it’s par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant, we en­deav­our to point out where the fo­cus was, and why. I love it when you dis­play the EXIF data of your im­ages. How­ever, I won­der if you could run a smaller im­age along­side this to dis­play the fo­cus point in a pho­to­graph, as I feel this is just as im­por­tant as aper­ture, shut­ter speed and so on.
