Focus is an important artistic tool, directing your viewers into and around your image, but a technical challenge too. In this book, the first serious treatent of the topic in the digital age, John Neel shows how a mastery of your lens will greatly enhance the quality and 'wow' factor of your photographs.

Never losing sight of what real-life photographers need to know, Focus in Photography will let you master bokeh and other focus techniques, giving you a complete understanding of optics-and what actually happens to light within the camera in your hand.

Focus…hmmm, that aspect of photography which many of us take for granted. After all can’t the cameras of today focus automatically? From a myriad of points within the viewfinder frame the camera’s computer will pick the ideal setting, right? While this may be acceptable to the novice or snap-shooter we need to realize that, along with composition, focus is an aspect of photography that maybe you just don’t want to relegate to the auto-feature of your camera’s computer. After all, the camera won’t be up to the task of determining the “focus” of the photographer’s intent. John Neel opens this discussion in his new book, “Focus in Photography”. With lots of great photo illustrations and diagrams he takes us on a journey through the fundamentals without getting too technical. He explores bokeh in its many variations along with various software and hardware tools as well. John as well as being a photographer is a teacher and philosopher of image making. So if you want to take your photography to the next level or brush up on some forgotten fundamentals I highly recommend this addition to your photographic library.
