So I'm fairly new to photography, (only been doing it for a month-ish) but have been reading up like a mad man on everything. I went and took shots of my daughter today and was using the manual focus feature on my Canon 5D mkIII. Both my wife and I experienced this problem and we both can NOT figure it out. Where ever we focused, using the manual joystick, it would take pictures BELOW where we focused. She was originally using a 70-200mm F2.8 IS L, but then switched to a 24-70mm F2.8 IS L, then went to a 50mm 1.4.
I on the other hand stuck with the 85mm F1.2 L the entire day.
We got home and brought the pictures up on the screen and they all looked like this...
As you can see it seemed to focus on the front part of her legs/dress and not her face.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
