New Video Tutorial – 10 Essential Autofocus Tips

By Dan

November 26, 2019

My latest video tutorial just went up on YouTube, it’s called 10 Essential Autofocus Tips for Shooting Sports and Action. 

In this lesson, I give you what I feel are the most fundamental tips for getting the best performance out of your autofocus system when shooting moving subjects.

Whether you like to photograph extreme adventure, action sports, wildlife, flying birds, (BIF), organized sports, cycling, hyperactive children or your golden retriever puppy, I show you how to maximize and increase your success rate for getting sharp photos.

I’ve also diagnosed some common problems that photographers often face when shooting very fast moving subject and provided a few possible solutions that will allow you to get around those issues.

If there’s one thing I know, it’s how to shoot fast action, and this video lesson is a concise compendium of my 23+ years of autofocus experience as a pro adventure and outdoor photographer. Using lots of image examples and ace tips, I share my expert knowledge about the skills needed in order to nail your focus when shooting these kinds of subjects.

The reality is that modern cameras and lenses is impressively capable, but they’re not infallible. Most of the time, its our own lack of experience, lack or practice or or the unrealistic expectations we place on our gear that prevents us from achieving a high success rate with regards to autofocus. In my lesson, I show you how to get around these limitations.

So, no matter what camera system you use, take advantage of my experience and learn to become more proficient with your autofocus.

I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

You have done it again! Another triumph.

Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

Thank you, Dan.
