When making the switch from point and shoot cameras to DSLRs, one aspect of the DSLR that can be confusing is learning how to achieve a sharp focus, because you have a few more options for setting the focus point with the advanced camera. You also almost certainly will have the option of focusing automatically or manually.
Try these seven tips to figure out how to use the DSLR’s various features to achieve sharp focus and the proper focal point.
Too Close to the Subject
One of the most common reasons for the DSLR camera’s autofocus to fail is because you are standing too close to the subject.
