How To Take Good Photos
© TOM ANG
- The human eye is drawn to elements that are in focus, and this will influence how your photo is seen.
- Auto-focus (standard on most digital cameras) will focus on what is in the centre of the frame. Use pre-focus to move your subject away from the centre of the frame. (This is done on most digital cameras by pressing down halfway on the shutter button.)
- Use your zoom lens to reduce the 'depth of field' (sense of depth) and throw the background out of focus. This will emphasise any in-focus element in the foreground.
