I've been playing with the digital camera, trying to figure out how to use the flower close-up feature.
No, don't be silly. I haven't read the instructions yet. I like to figure things out for myself.
I practiced a little today by focusing on the blooms of my Christmas cactus plants. Since they consistently refuse to bloom the week of Christmas, it was now or wait until spring when they come back for a second round of blooms.
Here they are. I like this one the best:
The color is a bit too pale on this one. Too much flash, I think:
It's obvious I also need to pay more attention to the background. I may try all of these against the same dark background I used for the white flower. Maybe that would also help with the lighting.
I'm guessing this gorgeous red will really pop as well.
So, back to the drawing board. If I do better on the next try, I'll put up the new ones for comparison.
Okay, now back to work. I'm supposed to be writing. I'll bet none of you can procrastinate as well as I can.
