The Art of Focus
May 15, 2012

So, another thread about the number of focus points made me do some research and I need some expertise from the pros here.

I've heard a lot about "focus & recompose" methods of autofocus. So far, I've mostly used AF-S and manually selected my focus point (for still subjects, landscapes) or chosen Auto-Area for portraits. I don't really do sports, but I do want to be able to take good candid portraits and the like. So does the focus and recompose method really work? Do you normally keep focus on your center point and then frame/compose the image? I just don't see how you could get accurate focus with that. I'm most concerned with learning how to focus quickly on non-moving or slowly moving people...

tips and tricks please
