    I'm reading the 'Understanding Exposure' Book and it's top stuff for a complete novice like me. But I hit my first sticking points today and need some further explanation.

    The author writes about taking a landscape shot and using the distance feature on the lens to focus at 3 feet.

    Please can someone explain more about this...what it means, when to do it, what steps to take. I have see the fucntion he refers to on my Canon 28-135 USM lens.

    Thanks in advance

    I've never heard of 3 feet being the point of focus, but most will recommend 1/3 way into the image in the viewfinder.

    Straightforward articles here and here.
