Focusing help with the HS20 EXR
Hi everyone, I am very new to photography but I am learning rapidly!
Today I ventured down to our local nature reserve and spotted a mating pair of Fly Catchers going in and out of their nest box and resting if only for a few seconds on a fallen tree branch.
Now the problem I have is firstly trying to focus from around 30feet on a very thin branch, for some reason I always pick up the background which is full of trees, bramble and other foliage. I was able to get some sort of focus by aiming at another part of the tree that was thicker then to hold and keep the shooting button half pressed, then pan the camera to the well visited thin branch.
This worked fine but as soon as I let go of the half pressed button the camera wants to refocus and I have to start all over again! Meanwhile the bird has come, had lunch, raised it's young and gone back abroad!
So hopefully someone can advise me with a way of fixing the focus on a subject without the need to keep the shoot button half pressed resulting in drainred batteries and an aching finger!
Here is the shot I was attemting to get, but sadly without a tripod at hand and unable to maintain the forcus as you can see it is a little on the blurry side.
Thanks in advance,
