Use single focus point and recompose after AF lock.

are you trying to do a focus subject with blurred background effect?

if you dont mind what equipment are you using?

It sounds like you are leaving the camera to choose the focus point. The easiest way around it would be to select the focus point yourself. Usually people stick to the center focus point.

Are you using auto mode?

Auto mode...the cam will decide the focus point for you.

for me (canon system) I swap my AE lock button with my half press for focusing. Therefore I focus with my thumb (on the AE lock button) and fire the shutter with the trigger button. This way I will not refocus if I recompose because the halfpress will not activate the focusing.


Note: I can do this both on my 40D and 1Dmk2. Not sure about the rest of the models.
