Nikonians Academy Director pens new book

Hagen-Autofocus-Book-2015-SQ_125.jpgNikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen's new book titled The Nikon Autofocus System, Mastering Focus for Sharp Images Every Time is now available for purchase.

Created in conjunction with Rocky Nook and NikoniansPress, this book is aimed at photographers who want to improve their autofocus skills with Nikon DSLR cameras.

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, 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, 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

Ebook versions are available for purchase right now and paperback versions will be in stores during the first few weeks of November, 2015.
