So I'm ordering my first slr camera tomorrow, and have been looking around at everyones pictures to get some inspiration. Anyway, I love the macro pictures, so I researched how to take them. I understand how to get the background blurred and all now, my question though is how do you select what you want in focus in these pictures? Like in this picture: http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/kk237/soncheeboon/grasshopper1.jpg how did they get it to focus in on the grasshoppers face, instead of the focus going to anything else? Please remember I haven't gotten my camera yet, so I don't have it to experiment with, so that's why I'm asking here! Sorry if this is a dumb question.
