Preventing your subject from being out of focusIt may be difficult to get your subject in focus when:

-￿there is little contrast between the subject and background (for example, when your subject is wearing clothing that is similar in color to the background)

-￿the light source behind the subject is too bright -￿the subject is shiny or reflective

-￿the subject includes horizontal patterns, such as blinds -￿the subject is not positioned in the center of the frame
