“it’s more important than ever to focus accurately and shoot sharp”

Welcome to the latest issue of Digital Photographer magazine. There was a time when shooting sharp images didn’t receive the focus, if you’ll pardon the pun, that it gets today. Once, taking a photo that was in good, sharp focus was quite an achievement, in the days before cameras were capable of doing a lot of the job themselves.As manufacturers have achieved higher and higher resolution sensors, any focusing inadequacies have become increasingly apparent, and we now consider it normal to zoom in and ‘pixel-peep’ at magnifications that we wouldn’t have even contemplated in the past.

Tomasz Rojek Image title: Tatra Mountains What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot?Canon 5D Mk II, EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS USM at 275mm, 1/125s, f10, ISO 400.How did you decide on the composition?The composition is based on the horizontal line made by the small hills along the bottom, the clouds and the ridges touched by the sunlight.What do you like most about the image?For me the most interesting part is the side light of the rising sun.
