| p.1 #1 · Why do you focus off-center? |
I'm not very creative, and my photos show it: pretty flowers, majestic mountains, noble bighorns, glorious sunsets. I do have some feel for the rule of thirds and the like, but on the whole I just take pictures in order to capture a thing of beauty. That may explain why I don't understand--particularly in regard to much of the discussion of the 5DII--what matters so much about using a non-center AF point. It seems to me that it would take more physical movement to accomplish it, for one thing (moving the multi-stick to shift the point and then hitting whichever focus button you use, as opposed to focusing, holding it, and shifting the camera a bit--though I grant that this would be more work on a tripod).
Not trying to start a fight, but to learn something. Can you tell me how you work this way and what advantages it holds for you? Thanks.
