Factory settings can be very frustrating when it comes to focusing your Nikon Digital SLR Camera where YOU want.
Explaining what the buttons do together can get a little complicated but here goes. Afterward with some practice you’ll be able to change them to suit your subject and get many more successful sharp shots of your subjects.

The problem with being married to a photojournalist, and being one yourself, is you never know…
The best news photographers take the Boyscout Motto of Always Be Prepared to heart – like a divine directive. And the best news photographers are never really ever “off”, even when they’re “supposed” to be on “vacation” (like Glenn at this particular moment).
So when we saw a command SUV careening through Springdale closely followed by West Chester’s engine, of course I had to follow it, after I blocked the intersection and waited for them to pass – waving wildly at the idiot who ran the light with them coming through! About a block later we saw the large column of dark smoke, knowing immediately it was more than just 1 house on fire (2o years of practice after all). While I changed shoes and gathered the 4 waters that were handy, Glenn headed for the fire with a Nikon D7000 with a 300 zoom and a D600 with a 24-85.
We’ve uploaded a gallery of 80 images from the fire with very basic toning in Lightroom (most untouched), shot by both of us. To see the settings, view the info or exif data. And remember to thank your local firefighters – and GET OUT OF THE WAY so they can save someone’s dog as well as their home!
