close ups

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

RE: close ups

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?

RE: close ups


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: focus
