    You need to put your camera in macro mode and take pictures that actually show something.

    Hate to say it, but those pictures don't show squat. Can't see anything useful, as they are either badly out of focus or washed out by the flash.

    if he cant figure out how to focus an iphone, he probably wont do much better with a real camera. Tapping your finger on the screen to focus your intended target isnt rocket science.

    This. Tap the item you want the camera to focus on, you will see a little square appear and it should focus on that item in the field of view.
