    Default what is your delay tactic when you're still trying to focus?

    ever happens during important shoots such as event of other kind of shoot where the subject is waiting and posing but you're still struggling to get the right focus perhaps due to bad light, wrong focusing or hunting lens?

    what do you do? ask them chin up chin down, relax, shoot an off focus picture or....blah blah

    Take your eye off the camera and eye the scene again critically...

    Go 'Hmmmmm'... then try again

    Hmm ... let's see ... the last time, I was straddled right on top of the very top most platform of a 20 foot ladder, which was on top of a stage ... I didn't have to say anything.

    I take the eye lotion from my pocket and give my eyes a few drops.This happens a lot when I shoot scantily dressed XMMs.

    So his delay tactic is to wait for the XMMs to turn to Aunties.
