January and February are two of my slowest months in the photography business. I actually enjoy it… it’s so nice after a busy fall season to get refreshed and try out a few new things. One of the things on my list that I’ve been meaning to try is “back button focusing” on my camera. I know a lot of photographers who think back button focusing is total awesome sauce. They swear it gives sharper images and is easier to use than shutter focusing. So I tried it today. I carried around the camera all day, taking pictures at the kids’ school and at home, and I used my back button focusing feature the whole day. Honestly, I’m not sure what all the fuss is about. I wasn’t that impressed. I’m still not sure whether I’ll stick with it or go back to shutter focusing, but at least I can say I gave it a try!
