Diffiuclty: Easy. (Flat walking on some sandy/gravel trails)

Being proficient with autofocus is perhaps the most challenging skill you can learn to master as a photographer. In order to increase your success rate, especially with subjects that move, you’ve got to practice a lot, you have to know your gear, and you need to have an efficient, optimized camera workflow. Whether you shoot sports, birds, wildlife, kids, pets, adventure, or any other kind of real-life scene, knowing how to navigate your camera’s focus system, and knowing how to work around its limitations, will make you a better all-around photographer. This field experience corresponds with Dan’s classroom workshop on Friday. Specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand. Limited to 10 participants.
