Story and Photography by Kelly Funk

Q: I’ve been reading the latest issue cover to cover and in your article you talk about anchoring the image. It’s a great article by the way, but one thing missing, at least for me, is where did you set your focus point? I’d love to see an article showing landscape photos indicating the focal point.

A: It’s a great question and personally something I don’t give much thought to as I have my tried and true method, derived from some pretty standard rules. I’ll cover those rules, other options and how I came to make the decisions that have worked for me. These techniques are geared toward cameras without the “live view” function, as not all DSLR cameras have that function.
