Just curious how much this method is used. I ask because I am wondering if my 24-70L is having focus problems or if it's ALL me. I am constantly disappointed with the images I am getting from it since it is on my camera (50D) 99% of the time. They just aren't crisp and clear like I see in so many photos on here. I was told that focus/recompose should solve a lot of my focus problems but for some reason I am not seeing a difference. SO now I generally just aim at the eyes and keep my fingers crossed!
Do most of you usually always focus/recompose?? Or if you do what circumstances is it usually under?
Also, is there any way to test my 24-70 without sending it in? Since I only have it and my 50mm I would hate to be without it for so long!
Here is an example from last night while we were out at the park. This was taken with my 24-70 at f/2.8, 1/640, focal length 50mm, Iso 400.....I used to think camera shake was my problem but as you can see my shutter was PLENTY fast to get rid of that and my daughter was standing completely still. I was on one shot, center point and focused right between her eyes....when you zoom in the eyes aren't in complete focus. HELP!!
While I have you here, why is photoshop telling me my images are all to large to save for web and changing them to GIF?
