I guess I will have to wait for a while longer before looking at your pretty roses - where I am all I get is this. Good luck trying to figure out this reasoning. :shocked:
Make sure you shoot macro with a lens zoomed wide all the way. It doesn't work otherwise. Took me a while to figure that one out.Originally posted by m2hmghb
I just got it 2 days ago, still havent figured out how to get into macro mode, have some lettering on my nagant i want to get a close up of.
I guess aperture priority, shutter priority, full manual exposure, and manual focus don't count for creative controls these days unless someone blesses it with an "SLR" moniker. The magic of words. :shakehead:Originally posted by Trebuchet
Pretty roses. If you shoot it again with the lens (close to) wide open, the background will blur out nicely.
(nevermind, I just found out the A620 is a point and shoot).
I like the first photo quite a bit because it shows the ambience of the place (and quite charming it is). The second is too isolated and at the same time not isolated enough (doesn't really show the rose by itself, but loses the fence). I would say keep the first one and work with macros. Also, start playing with postprocessing. A620 produces good material for further work.Originally posted by m2hmghb
how do you think these look for a beginner?

That's what I was pointing out. Hope I didn't come across too strong. It's unfortunately a common knee-jerk reaction to non-SLR cameras, and perhaps my reaction was skewed by having seen such a response too many times.Originally posted by Trebuchet
I didn't read the spec sheet for the camera, just looked at a picture on a website.
