Do tell how to make one's camera obey! I am clueless how to make the little focus box match up with what *I* think the camera should focus on. Pretty pictures!
Thanks! I can't speak for anyone else's camera. I have a Canon Powershot - your fairly basic digital point-and-shoot. I've found for detailed shots like these flowers it works best to have the camera very close to the subject (about a foot is ideal, not more than 2 feet away). I put it on the "macro" setting, and just make very sure the focus box is actually centred on whatever I want most in focus. It usually takes a couple tries and some adjustment of the distance from the object before it focuses properly... and I probably take at least 4 bad photos for every one that turns out decently! (But at least with digital that doesn't matter!)Some day, I would love to get a "fancy" camera and learn about manual focus and all the rest of it. But for now I'm just figuring out how to take the best photos I can with my little camera!
