Focus Points


How changing your focus point can change your image.




How changing your focus point can change your image by David Akoubian.
 
One thing I do when I am determining the best composition in an image is to change focal points whether it be in my mind or in the camera. With digital it is easier to see the visualization because of the LCD screen on the camera.
 
I wanted to do a few images to show the difference in choosing focus points. The results show 2 very different images, even the mood of the image changes.
 
One image focusing on the closest point is sharp and detailed but the image focusing on the center has a softer look but still maintains detail. Both images were made at the same f-stop, f5 in this case.
 

Both images were made using a Nikon D-300s, Tamron 60mm Macro, Vanguard Alta Pro 284CT tripod and SBH-200 ball head, Marumi circular polarizer, Interfit Delta Remote shutter release.
