Focus optimization and detail optimization

Another unhandy task of more demanding photography is macro shots, especially those with multiple levels of depth, such as plant leaves. Here we often hear that the wrong area is focused or the focus area is too flat. It is very easy to determine what should be in focus:

  • Open Camera.
  • Tap the object you want to focus on the screen.
