    Short. Sweet. Always been too scared to try it, but sometimes messing around with focus points takes way too long! Will definitely give this a go! Thanks Matt!

    Matt,

    Here is a suggestion for a technique video or even for a video series:

    I am a having a difficult time creating interesting photographs: I guess I am having trouble "seeing the photograph". I see something interesting, but when I put the picture on the screen, it lacks something (possibly the composition, subject, or emphasis are wrong). The technical aspects (exposure [I shoot in "M" manual mode], depth of field, and focus] are all correct, but the picture is missing something.

    Could you do a video on "seeing" the photograph?

    Thank you.

    Hey Matt

    Thank you for your superbly simple and clear videos!
    I am thinking about buying a D800 as the prices drop for used models BUT I read a lot about how difficult it is to get sharp images due to the high resolution. Is that true? Becaise on a crop 24MP sensor like on the d7100 there are even more pixels per mm2 and it seems no issue there...
    Could you clarify this mystery??

    Cheers from Berlin
