A Lesson in Focus

A laborious yet exciting quest led me to discover what I have done wrong regarding focus. Following I have listed some check points I shall follow to control my outcome. I have been practicing since midnight last night photographically obsessed with the final print. The list is as follows in short:

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY CHECKLIST:

  • BATTERIES
  • SD CARDS
  • CAMERA IS ON TRIPOD
  • NON-CPU LENS DATA
  • LENS
  • FOCAL LENGTH
  • APERTURE F-STOP
  • LIVE VIEW FROM CAMERA BACK
  • RED FOCUS BOX
  • FOCUS
  • ISO
  • WB
  • SHUTTER SPEED
  • VIEW FINDER FOCUS DIAL (IF NECESSARY)
  • VIRTUAL HORIZON IS ON

These checkpoints grant me access to finer images I hope will render better prints. One does not photograph on Automatic once Manual techniques have been discovered. Automatic is no longer faithful.
