So I'm a new photographer, and I'm using my camera, and before I know it, it decides to focus on what it wants to focus on, not what I have it pointed at.. So I start reading, and I find that the default setting for the 5 different focus points in AUTO is CLOSEST SUBJECT. Now, I can see how someone who is an experienced photographer can use this effectively while utilizing the rule of thirds, etc, but myself, generally I'm pointing my camera at the thing that I want to take a picture of. Is there any practical reason why I won't want to set my camera's focus point selection to the center rectangle and leave it there? I don't like pointing my camera at a lake and having it focus on a tree branch three feet from me and off to the right... I get to thinking-if I wanted a picture of that branch, I would have pointed the camera at it.. Does anyone else use the center bracket only? Thanks for the info.
