|Tips and Tricks: Focus, Depth of Field part1 by Jorg Fedler (based on an article by www.mediacollege.com)|
The ability to manually focus your camera is a critical skill at any level of video production.
If you find that your focus is sharp when you are zoomed in but soft when zoomed out, your back focus needs adjusting. This normally only happens to cameras with detachable lenses — consumer-level camera users shouldn't have to worry about it.
The Focus Pull
The focus pull (AKA rack focus) is a creative camera technique in which you change focus during a shot. Usually this means adjusting the focus from one subject to another.
Focus Throw / Defocus
Throwing focus usually means dropping focus completely. This can either refer to certain parts of the picture (e.g. the background) or to the entire picture.
