This is my first time posting on this forum. Actually I'm a newbie who's really new to photography so hope you guys could guide me along here.
I just bought a Canon A80 and I've been shooting and playing around with the camera.
The problem arose when I found out that some of the images I took are blurred. I suppose the camera has those Auto focus frames that selects the subject and blurs the background to make the object stand out.
But what if the camera "selects" the subject I do not want? Can I change it? Or what if the subject I want is much bigger than what the camera selects? If I'm not wrong, only the objects within the auto focus frames would be sharp... and the others would be blurred so as to make the object stand out. Is that right?
To give an example, I wanted to take a group photo of many people. The group takes up most of the image size... yet the camera focuses only on a few people. When I printed the image out, only the faces of a few people are sharp... the rest are blurred. Do you all know how I can alter the auto focusing mechanism of the camera?
Sorry for this long post... but I've tried reading the instructions manual and tried switching off the AF mode, but still didn't work... I'm exasperated.
Please help if you could. I'll really appreciate it!
