As some of you know, I have wonderful access to this very nice, semi-automatic.....camera. It is very smart at automatic point and shoot type pictures. It ALSO gives me the ability to take it off automatic and play.

So I've been staring at the non-automatic settings, wondering how I would do. I've been pointing and shooting for weeks, having fun with the results. This week a pretty little potted plant appeared in the entryway just outside of my teaching area. So.....

I took it out of automatic. Got some advice from Adrian. Scouted the internet for information on apertures, f-stop, etc.......Sat for hours with a tripod in front of this potted flower, evoking strange looks from colleagues, parents and students. Sent the results to Adrian, got more advice, started to hate photography, started to like it again, and-well----
















A macro flower.

Can't wait until spring. I want more practice.

You are having way too much fun with that camera ... =D> =D> =D>

Nice shot .... but I actually thought you had come up with nothing ... there was a lot of blank space between the text and the picture .. and I thought well I guess Adrian couldn't help her after all ... :laughing:

Great minds think alike! I, too, was thinking the same thing, Jim. Connie, striking colors on that flower. More, please!!

Nice photo, Connie, especially being your first on manual settings! Photography is fun, especially when you end up with a great photo. Keep up the good work. :thumbsup:

Actually, it's probably somewhere in the range of my 50th or 60th on manual settings. I had to delete a lot of fuzzy flowers from the card before I got a clear one. :oops:

Very very nice, Connie. I love that you can even see the hairs on the stem. Nice PP as well.
