Super easy! Simply Tap and hold on the spot you want the camera to focus until you see the yellow AE/AF Lock alert. Once that pops up, the automatic exposure metering and automatic focus metering have been locked on your subject and will not change.
Try This: Take one image without locking focus - then try pressing your screen to lock focus.
