With today’s advanced camera technology, achieving focus on a photographic subject seems like it should be a straightforward task, but many photographers know that it can be deceptively difficult, especially when shooting moving subjects or in challenging situations. Now, there is a complete guide available for Nikon shooters that will help them get tack-sharp photos every time.

In The Nikon Autofocus System, 2nd Edition, photographer Mike Hagen, author of the bestselling The Nikon Creative Lighting System, takes his deep knowledge of Nikon technology and concentrates on its focus features. In this book, which covers all current Nikon DSLR models (including the D5 and D500), Hagen fully explains how Nikon autofocus works, including detailed discussions of all the autofocus modules, drive systems, and camera buttons and menus. He also devotes an entire chapter to explore how focus works with Nikon’s lenses.

Armed with this general knowledge, Hagen then dives deep and offers camera setups, settings, and best practices for specific field techniques that address the photographic genres that are notoriously challenging for focus: action and sports (indoor and outdoor), wildlife (including birds in flight), and macro photography. He also covers genres such as portrait, landscape, underwater, low-light, and street photography. Hagen not only advises on the best ways to set up the camera and focus systems, he gives helpful tips and tricks throughout the book.

The Nikon Autofocus System also covers:

    • Live view autofocus methods and settings
    • Achieving great focus in video
    • AF tracking
    • AF shooting styles, such as back-button AF and shutter-release AF
    • HDR, panoramas, and other techniques for shooting with a tripod
    • An entire chapter on additional terms and techniques, such as hyperfocal distance, calibrating lenses, focus and flash photography, and more

Eine gelungene Architekturaufnahme kann das Aussehen und die Wirkung eines Gebäudes besser transportieren als jedes andere Medium. Doch welche Ausstattung wird dafür benötigt? Was sind die Voraussetzungen für eine gelungene Aufnahme? Warum sieht ein Gebäude auf einem Foto ganz anders aus als in der Realität? Welche Methoden gibt es, die eigenen Aufnahmen zu verbessern? Welchen Einfluss hat die digitale Nachbearbeitung und welche Möglichkeiten eröffnen sich damit? Die Antworten gibt dieses Buch. Das erste Kapitel hilft bei der Zusammenstellung einer den individuellen Bedürfnissen angepassten Ausrüstung für die Architekturfotografie. Das zweite Kapitel setzt sich mit den gestalterischen Aspekten der Architekturfotografie im Innen- und Außenraum auseinander: Bei der Aufnahme haben Faktoren wie Standort, Bildkomposition oder Aufnahmeparameter einen entscheidenden Einfluss, denn je nach Vorgehen kann ein und dasselbe Gebäude auf ganz unterschiedliche Weise dargestellt werden. Im letzten Kapitel werden unterschiedliche Nachbearbeitungstechniken beim digitalen Workflow mit Bildbearbeitungsprogrammen wie Adobe Photoshop Schritt für Schritt erläutert. Die 3., überarbeitete Auflage zeigt über 90 neue Abbildungen und Illustrationen. Einzelne Kapitel wurden erweitert und neue Themen wie der Einfluss von Wolken auf die Architekturdarstellung oder das Warten auf den perfekten Moment zur Aufnahme neu hinzugefügt. Der Autor geht außerdem auf aktuelle Entwicklungen der Fototechnik ein, bietet Hilfestellungen zur exakten Kameraausrichtung und führt die Vorteile des entschleunigten Arbeitens vor Augen. Auch das Kapitel Bearbeitungstechnik wurde überarbeitet und auf den neusten Stand gebracht.
