You can click the red button below to download all 4 photos. They are uncropped and unedited. Several of them are in JPG because I’ll often shoot JPG when I know it’s not a challenging exposure situation.
I chose a photo where the hawk had just landed so I had to capture motion as well.
A close up photo captured on a tripod with cable release, manual focus and focus peaking turned on. It’s… like… REALLY sharp 🙂
I have done many of your courses, but your ‘Sharp and in Focus’ course is by far the best course I’ve ever done. Learning so much about photography in 90 minutes is priceless.
– Harald Koch
Using the right focus mode and focus area, I was able to capture this photo, and track the hawk as it flew toward me.
This was taken hand-held with a 4oomm lens. You’ll notice the uncropped version still stayed sharp at a distance, even while hand holding.

My Promise to You!
(and I don’t do this often)
You Will Learn At Least 1 New Thing!
My promise to you is that you WILL learn at least one new thing about taking sharp and in-focus photos in this course. If you don’t, you can request a full 100% no-questions-asked refund within 30 days of purchase.
Why only one thing? Judging from people I talk to all the time about this stuff, I actually think you’ll learn MANY New things.
But… if you only learned 1 thing that will get you sharper and better focussed photos, I believe that is easily worth $47.
Think about it… you’ve spent thousands on camera equipment. If $47 can help you take just one more sharp photos when it counts, wouldn’t you spend that any day of the week?
