Re: Summary of the advice given

One of the first things I do with a new camera is shoot 100's of test shots under varying light and composition CONTROLLED conditions. Once I got comfortable with the camera, I was confident with candid photos.

I also did extensive research and trained myself on the focus modes on the 7D, but still could not get really sharp pictures. I purchased my 7D second hand, and in my case I had to send my camera back to Canon for calibration and repair.

Once received back from Canon, my pics are as sharp as I want or don't want them to be!!

Best of luck with your journey and happy shooting!
