In this video tutorial, Lukasz covers a basic, but often overlooked, method for manual focusing on a DSLR with live view. This technique works especially well on a tripod (though it can be used hand-held as well) especially when shooting static scenes such as urban landscapes like the one shown in the video. As always, please feel free to ask us questions in the comments!
