Commack/Northport High School Girls Varsity Swimming vs. Half Hollow Hills
Congratulations to the Commack/Northport girls swimming team on their win over Hills. Here’s another team that’s on a roll!
Here’s an interesting thought - are you having problems with your swimming photos being out of focus? Maybe your camera’s autofocus is too good!
I shoot with a Fujifilm XT-2 and they’ve released a number of firmware updates to improve autofocus over the past couple of years. While this is great for most photography I’ve noticed that my percentage of good shots on swimming photos has declined. I think the cause is that the camera’s autofocus has become so good that it consistently picks up the water spray instead of the swimmer behind the spray.
One fix for this is to switch from zone autofocus to single point autofocus and try to keep the focus point on the swimmer’s face. If you’re having the same problem, give it a try. You might find your keeper rate increases.
That’s it for today. Next post will be boys volleyball. Have fun.
