Focusing tips for a beginner
Oct 24, 2012

Hi all, new here.  I've been lurking for a while, having had an EP-2 and not seriously pushed myself enough to find out how to get better photos.

I recently upgraded to an OMD EM-5, though, and I want to learn how to get better results.  I've been taking photos of the fall foliage and there appears to be a bit of a blur, as if it is painted, when I zoom in to full size.

Is this a problem with focus or with metering (that is, am I using too much light), or are the lens dirty, or am I just a n00b?

ISO 200 45mm f/5.0 1/800 sec
