Hello lovely readers,
Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday, and I am so pleased that the image was well received. It was a self portrait, so lots of nice emails from wonderful photographers found their way to my inbox asking me how I get my focus so perfectly. The truth is that most of the time I don’t. I just experiment moving back and forth until I get it absolutely perfect. Or I put something in my place, focus on it, and then take its place.
Here’s proof that in most of my photos I get the focus all wrong.
The truth of the matter is we are all human, and can only learn as we go. In fact, I’m thinking of buying a music stand to put in my place so I can get the focus spot on. Don’t get discouraged by the difficulty of self portraits, it is the difficulty that will help you grow, learn and improve as a photographer and artist. Rock it out and don’t give up.
