Hi Folks... I've been playing with photography for the last year or so. I have a Canon
7d and recently splurged on the 70-200 2.8 IS. My son races motocross so that was my primary focus and I found I was able to get decent shots most of the time. Lately, however, I've tried different types of photography and I'm getting so incredibly frustrated. I think I'm just overwhelmed with the depth of knowledge involved. I guess my question is... What should a beginner photographer really focus on? What is most important when it comes to getting a sharp, in focus image? I feel like I have at least a basic understanding but when I try to apply it, I'm totally disappointed. Any tips? I'm losing confidence really quickly!
