Last week I shared a tip about getting the correct exposure straight out of the camera (SOOC) so that you do not spend valuable time fixing your images in post process. So this week, lets talk about that tack sharp focus on the eyes. It can be very difficult to tell if your shot is in focus by looking at the back of the LCD screen on your camera. The best way that I have found to check for sharpness is to zoom in on my camera and look at the picture on the LCD to look at the eyelashes. If you can see individual eyelashes, then you know you have a tack sharp photo. If the eyelashes appear like a blur of black, then it is not sharp.
Great photography doesn’t take fancy equipment or college degrees—just passion and a willingness to invest in yourself and in the memories you’ll be preserving for generations to come.
