Photography School
Wind your way through Frank Lloyd Wright’s spiraling rotunda to trace the influential career of American artist Christopher Wool. From his early uses of bold text and patterns to his recent abstract works created through collage, erasure, and digital manipulation, Wool’s largely monochrome paintings, photographs, and works on paper conduct a dynamic investigation into what it means to make a picture today. Don’t miss the artist’s most comprehensive retrospective to date—only at the Guggenheim. For more information and advance tickets, visit guggenheim.org/wool.

Did you ever have a photo come out looking like this? The focus point might have been at the very far back, tricking your flash to assume that that’s how far your actual subject is, and thus shooting at full power. 
Try locking your focus at your subject by using Focus Lock or by half-pressing the shutter button; this will hold the focus where you want it to be until you shoot.
