Using focus points to take better photos. #photography

On my camera, I can choose to have one focus point or as many as 51 focus points and they are used to get your subject into focus. I like to use just one focus point but sometimes it is useful to have a lot of focus points. For example, if you’re photographing a large group of people you can arrange them and set the scene up so you get the whole group in focus. Using focus points is important and even if you only have one, like on my old bridge camera, it is important to get the one focus point on your subject.

Using the focus points photography

I’m not convinced that having lots of focus points helps you get the whole image in focus. I sometimes use just one focus point when I’m doing landscape photography to try to get a distant object in sharper focus. When I’m taking a shot of a group of people then the focus points are really useful. On my camera, they are tiny red dots and if I have all 11 visible then that is a good shot but more often than not, I have the ones to the right and left of the shot and that is good enough. If the focus points are even across the shot then it shows the camera isn’t tilted in one direction of the other. It also helps me to keep the camera level.

Experiments in photography #photography

Once a month we have an evening of spoken word, poetry and music in Wednesbury library and I’m allowed to photograph the performers. It is a great opportunity for me to experiment and see if I can take photos in fluorescent light without a flash and learn how high I can take the ISO up without getting noise. I’ve also done experiments with video. The monthly event is on the last Tuesday of each month and at the end of March, I experimented with wide apertures, spot focusing and monochrome.

Wide open with a narrow depth of field #photography

Wide open in photography means the widest aperture that the lens will give you. This is often around f/4.5 with most lenses. I can go wider with my prime lens which will go to f/1.8. Take a look at this wide open shot of some beer cans:

Focus points and metering #photography

The focus points on a camera are used to focus on your subject but they are also used for metering. My Nikon D3200 has 11 focus points and they are useful but I often only use one. Some cameras have a lot more focus points and they  cover the whole frame.

Focus points #photography

All digital cameras have focus points, some cameras like my Fujifilm, just have one. My Nikon D3200 has 11 focus points that come up as red dots. It is important to get those focus points on your subject. I like to use one focus point for a single subject such as photographing one person and all 11 focus points for a group or a landscape.
