Blurred backgrounds often look wonderful in people portraits. Sharp backgrounds often look good in outdoor scenery photos. But you can't always seem to make the right background happen at the right time!
In this meetup we will discuss the controls you can use on your camera to get sharpness where you want it, and blur where you want it. Not all cameras are made alike, so methods vary from one type of camera to another. We'll discuss the variables and what you can do about them. And we will PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE with hands-on demonstrations.
We'll also demonstrate how to get the sharpest view through your camera's viewfinder so you'll see your subject more clearly while you are viewing through the lens.
Autofocus modes can also be confusing so we'll give an overview of which modes are useful at which times. Again, not all cameras have the same autofocus modes, so we will check each camera and include it in the overview.
Finally, we'll take a look in the menu systems of the DSLR-style cameras to see which ones have built-in FOCUS ADJUSTMENT tools to customize autofocus operation.
