I am constantly reading and studying ways to improve my photography. While taking pictures of Evie, my main concentration was on attaining a good, sharp focus. There are different methods of selecting your focus within the composition of your frame. In these photos I was using back button focus. A feature on my camera assigns one button on my camera to lock focus and exposure and the shutter button takes the shot. This enables me to recompose the subject in the frame without losing the focus point I have selected, which for portraits is ideally the eye closest to you.
