Focus, Focus, Focus!

Relay runners turn for home.

Today’s advice for parents with cameras is such a basic rule of photographic thumb that it applies to all kinds of photos, not just youth action pix. Yet I see it broken in Facebook galleries constantly, even by people who should know better.

It’s simple: If you want to be known as a good photographer, only post your best photos. Don’t show off your blurry pix. I never show anyone my bad photos, and believe me, I’ve taken my share (and have deleted them asap).

You might be thinking that an out-of-focus pic of a friend’s superstar is better than none of all. But parents would rather have a crisp, sharp shot of their kid. That blur could be anyone.

So remember to keep ’em in focus or keep ’em to yourself!
