December 3, 2012 – Almost Midnight

2012_1203_S

This is one of those days when I procrastinated until last minute and before I realized it, I had only less than 5 minutes to take a usable picture.  I took some before midnight but I couldn’t get a picture with decent enough focus.  The Canon lens that I have doesn’t have the focus distance and it was too dark for the auto focus function to work, I can’t even make much out looking through the view finder.

  1. A trick I learned about focusing in the dark: turn on live view on your camera, and use the zoom to focus on a distant light source. Then, manually focus using on that light. (Of course, make sure your auto focus is turned off) After that, turn off live view and take your picture as usual.
