Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. I can help you with this question, I think.

Do you know the Focus Lock function? if your camera model has it, I would advise enabling it.

Do you know how to use Focus Lock? it requires understanding - I will instruct you as to how to use it properly and what to expect in the way of visual controls or outlines etc.
