7 Useful Tips for Photographing Summer

I often receive a strange look when I mention that summer is my least favorite season.

Manual Focus or Automatic Focus?

Manual Focus or Automatic Focus
Capturing sharp and in-focus images is something I often see beginning photographers struggle with. Many don't notice it themselves but it's very visible to those who view the images. Most photographers have at some point struggled with this and have been frustrated by having great shots ruined because they're out of focus. So how do you get the images focused?
