Photography: Focus

One of the things I struggle with in taking pictures is FOCUS.

According to Mark Hancock, the definition of focus are: 1) The position at which rays of light from a lens converge to form a clear and sharply defined image on a focal plane. 2) The action of adjusting the distance between the lens and subject to make light rays converge to form a clear and sharply defined image of the subject.

I walked around Makati Park and Garden near my school to relax, and practiced focusing on some birds I found at the park. It was really challenging because they were inside this big cage, but it was also rewarding when I got some clear shots.


See the bars the camera lens had to go through to focus on these majestic winged creatures? When I got a clear shot, I was like “Whoah. Cool!” Haha!

Okay, back to learning.

P.S. Does anyone have an idea what kind of birds those are? I couldn’t find any information by the cage.

          1. Next time when it comes to birds, you can ask, if it talks back to you, you are lucky, if it doesn’t, nothing is lost except just a little bit of your dignity when somebody else happens to be around, lol
