Ok, I have a canon A85, and I always use the Auto mode - point and shoot. There are other functions, though. If I'm taking pictures of, say, all the flowering trees around town, what's the best way to do that? Time of day, camera setting, etc. We have crepe Myrtles everywhere right now, and I think they are beautiful! I'd love to get some really nice pictures!

Thanks, photography people, for your help!

Wow, that's truly a beautiful and crystal clear shot. Guess it's time for a new camera that has that kind of function. :) I think I deserve it after the way this week has been going, :). So do tell more about all these different functions.

nice shot momi23girls!

diazcamille,
-try shooting on a cloudy day, then strong shadows won't be that much of a problem.
-or late in the day
-get in close to get all the details
-now, try the same shot, but step even closer
-and if that's not close enough, get closer

when all finished, if they're not quite right, you can try again! that's what's great about digital.
