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!

Does your camera have a flower mode?? Both of my digital ones do and it helps take awesome flower photos. Its a macro mode that is specifically designed fo flowers

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.

To have a friend is to have a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold and an extra pair of legs when yours are too weak to stand alone...

I have been living buried in books and writing classes... as an added note I must say that it is rather scary when you start dreaming and all you can see within your dreams is words floating everywhere!

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.
Dinny
