close ups

sharon620June 23, 2008

Can anyone please tell me how to take a close up of my flowers with the backround being blurred?

I would also like to take pics and put them onto websites.

I should get my butt moving and read. I will do that in the mean time. Sometimes it is just easier to learn from others.

Thanks so much

Hi Sharon, what type of camera do you have? If you have a point and shoot camera, it should have a macro setting which is for flowers? Is this what you mean?

I am Abby,

I do not know about Sharon but I need to find out about taking close ups of flowers if someone can help.

I own a Kodak Easyshare C875 - it is great that it fits in my handbag and I can take it anywhere with me.

Unfortunatelly it seems to be smarter than me and gets a perfect focus but not necessarily of the object I am needing. As an example I am taking pix of flower pods and I wind up with a very nicely focused chair and table in the background???

Any help would be appreciated

Here is a link that might be useful:
