Day 20 | Pre-Focus To Avoid Shutter Lag
Avoid Shutter Lag - Allow the Camera Time To Focus
I have come to notice that many people think their cameras suffer from camera lag, but it is really a result of not allowing the camera time to focus.
Pre-Focus Your Camera the Moment Before the Shot
2. Push the shutter release half way down, keeping your camera steady
3. Continue to hold down the shutter release half way down until the moment you want to capture the scene.
4. Press the shutter all the way till you hear the click of your shutter taking the picture.
Simple? I know!
No more shutter lag, it’s just a matter of learning to pre-focus.
Today’s Takeaway and To Do’s:
1. Grab your camera and let’s head outside, inside, where ever you would like to go. What you decide to take a picture of is perfectly fine with me.
2. Set your camera to Manual exposure
3. Press your shutter release half way down to lock in your focus (if you are shooting a person, focus on the eye that is closest to you.
4. Once you have your pre-focus locked in, press the shutter down the rest of the way.
5. Now move to a different subject to shoot and keep practicing. You will notice there is no shutter lag.
Simple! Great job today!
See you tomorrow!
