That sounds like you are using a DSLR camera in Auto focus.
Best to use (M) Manual or (P) ...
Reason: when using Auto focus, the software sends the command
to TAKE the photo and now the camera has to take extra time
to focus THEN takes the photo.
This is why what was expected to be the photo, is not due to
the few extra seconds needed for the camera to focus.
Now to set up and use (M) or (P) start with your first TEST session
with the camera in Auto Focus - start the session and as soon
as the FIRST photo is taken SWITCH the dial to (M) or (P)
Now the cameras focus is set for the depth of field to take
all the remaining photos in focus the instant the software
sends the command to take the photo.
You ask... what is the difference of (M) and (P)
(M) is full manual controls that you would need to adjust
(P) is set up to lock the focus you have set with your
first test photo in Auto and it will be adjusting other settings
if needed during the live view, not slowing down the time
when the command to take a photo.
This setting is what many use when lighting conditions
at an event are changing due to room lights being turned
on and off or sun light coming from the windows.
