So I have a 5d mark 3, before that I was always using cameras on auto mode so I've been learning a lot and using manual and manually selecting focus points (on the eyes) etc. One issue I've been having is that, lets say i'm taking a full body portrait, I put a focus point on the eye, its usually the uppermost focus point in that situation. Problem is, sometimes theres too much space in the photo above the persons head, but i'm already at the top of the focus points so the only way to frame the photo better is to focus with one of the top focus points on the eye and then recompose the shot lower. However, I try not to do this as I feel the focus wont be quite as accurate. But if I don't do that, a lot of my shots have too much space above the person / the composition is off..
Should I just focus and recompose in that situation? What do you guys do? I find that i'm focused on the focus points more then composing the shot exactly the way I want to.. whereas when I used to shoot full auto all my energy was on simple composition.. know what I mean?
