This was written for anyone who has ever struggled with getting crisp images in various situations. Maybe you recently purchased a fast lens, but can’t figure out why the camera keeps focusing on the wrong part of the subject. Or perhaps you feel as if you’re doing everything right but still come out with slightly soft images. This process can be extremely frustrating and hard to deal with.
Within the pages of this ebook, you’ll discover the tips and tricks used by the pros to take full control over the advanced systems of focus within today’s digital camera systems. Along the way you’ll see actual examples of images where these practices were put in place, often times in situations where focus would have been next to impossible to achieve otherwise.

“My hope is that if you have ever struggled with getting consistently sharp images, that this book will completely revolutionize your ability as a photographer. These tips aren’t rocket science, and they can be found in any owner’s manual on any camera. The problem is, most of us don’t ever open that big and bulky manual. They aren’t all that intuitive, and nothing is really spelled out. There are a laundry list of techniques and tricks that the pros use daily to get sharp images on purpose, and that’s what this ebook sets out to uncover.” -James Brandon
