You just don't know the three-step system that actually works
to help you take tack-sharp photos...yet! It is not that you are not smart enough or lack the ability to understand the techniques to "make it happen."
The actual issue is that you've just not yet learned what the "professional photographers" know, but won't (or can't) teach you.
But the great news for you is that I'm going to to show you how to use a simple series of steps that will lead to super sharp pictures. You see, taking sharp photos every time is not the result of doing one thing right, rather, it is the result of doing a series of steps right.
Bottom line: Taking super sharp pictures is a LOT easier than you think once you know the steps to follow!
oh and one more thing...
I'm not going to tell you that I am somehow special because I figured this out, but I am going to tell you a quick story about how a failure on an important photo shoot actually changed my photography forever.
I was a photo hobbyist. At the time, I wouldn't even say the words, "I am a photographer", but rather, I would say "I love taking pictures". I had a full time job and I tried to fit photography in to my busy life. I was a solo learner, and I had no one to mentor me in photography.
I wanted to take a spectacular panorama photo of the skyline of the downtown core of Vancouver. I made friends with a security guard so that he would get me onto the rooftop of an office tower at sunset, and finally there I was, all alone, standing in front of my camera on a tripod on a rooftop overlooking the downtown skyline. The view was incredible and I got my shots.
That night I excitedly uploaded my photos to my computer at home and looked at them in Photoshop. This is what I call the moment of truth. But to my total dismay, my photos were not sharp. In fact, they were so soft I couldn't use the photo...even for a social media post.
