Autofocus for Wildlife and Birds In Flight

Dave Henry
March 15, 2018
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
$29 Class
Canon Live Learning San Francisco

Suite 100

Canon DSLR cameras come populated with numerous factory autofocus default settings. The question is which of these settings are best used for wildlife and birds in flight? Many of these settings can be changed to customize the camera’s autofocus cases to overcome obstacles encountered in the field. 

Join photojournalist and Canon Live Learning instructor Dave Henry in a program designed to specifically help you understand how your autofocus system works. 

Whether you’re photographing birds on the beach or in the air, wildlife in a zoo or in the field, this class will give you the tools to make decisions that will allow you the flexibility to customize autofocus cases for your specific use. 

Developing better shooting skills and becoming more familiar with the characteristics that may affect autofocus is essential. Customizing autofocus cases isn’t a silver bullet or magic bean that will cure lack of shooting skills, but it will help you better analyze your subject and the characteristics of each focus case. This class can help you become more proficient in achieving a higher degree of focus accuracy with action images. 

This class is designed to assist you with autofocus questions that might help you if you’re considering attending the Birds in Flight photography workshop on March 25, 2018. 

What you will learn: 

• New menu options for autofocus customization 

• How to capture images of wildlife obscured by foliage or other distractions 

• The differences between focus points 

• The differences between focus point groups 

• How Back-button focus can help with action 

• How to customize focus cases 

What is provided: 

• Canon notebook, pen and lens cloth 

• Water and light snacks
