Taking Better Pictures Points to Remember • Depending on the distance from the subject to camera, the final picture may not match the image in the viewfinder, and zooming in can make the discrepancy even greater. Use the monitor for close- ups. • Subjects may be difficult to focus if they (1) have little contrast, (2) appear excessively bright in the center, (3) have no vertical lines, (4) are at varying distances, or (5) are moving quickly.
