Re: Canon 5d III portrait focusing technique

I have assigned the * (asterisk) key to be my focus point so I focus using the center point and purposefully press the asterisk button to focus then reframe the shot and take it with a half press and shutter release.  That way I know the focus will not change.  I used to use the same technique you described but my half press sometimes would not hold the focus.
