Lorna - Thanks! You're so sweet!

Kiera said...

Loving these Rhea! I just ordered a macro lens and it will arrive in a week so I will be following closely in your footsteps in "Taking a Closer Look". Lovely pictures!

CrystalChick said...

Passionate purple and yummy yellow and the detail... nice!
What setting were you using?

Valarie said...

Wow those are beautiful! You did a great job on your close ups.

Alison B. Osborne said...

Great pictures, Rhea! You are getting the hang of these close-ups. You will have to teach me! :)

Hi there! Welcome to the blogosphere! I popped over from crystalchick's blog. These flower pictures are absolutely stunning...great job!

Kat said...

I have the big camera. I have a macro attachment. I even have photoshop (that I still haven't figured out how to use). And my pictures never look that good. Love the last one!

And you are a blogging fool lately. I need to find time to go and catch up with all your posts!

fabulous

Rhea said...

Kiera - exciting you are getting a macro lense! I don't have one, but my camera has some wild zoom qualities.

Crystal Chick - We have similar cameras, right? HOw do you like yours? I was using the regular auto setting and zooming in a lot...and then I tried the SCN setting and chose "foliage." I can't remember which one I used for these pictures...

Valarie - Thanks!

Rhea said...

Alison - Thanks! The key is backing up a lot from what you want to take a picture of, and then super zooming in. Works really well.

Motherhood for Dummies - Summer is SUPER close for us in Texas. It heats up fast around here.

Bemudabluez - Nice to meet you, glad you stopped by! Thanks!

Burfica - Thanks!!

Kat - I have been blogging a lot lately...I have the blogging bug. Now, if only I could translate this into making money, I'd be happy.

Lady in Red - Thanks!!

Your Camera did that????

WOW! Beauty!!! :-) xx

GoMommy said...

How beautiful- you really do have a gift!

KP said...

pretty! you're good at that :)

CrystalChick said...

Yes, I think ours are similar. I have the S5 IS and you have the S2, right?
Mine is black, yours silver.
Check the left hand side on the lens section and there should be 2 round buttons. One is for manual focus and the other is a flower that is the icon for 'Macro'. Check out that setting for closeups!

There are some days that I love love love my camera. I have tons of photos on my blog but don't really know if they would be considered 'good' shots or not. I only put them on there if I like them. It's my blog, right?? LOL
But there are other days that I am positively frustrated and want to scream because pictures are fuzzy or the focus isn't where I want or I can't do this or that. And sometimes when you want to capture a shot quick, it's near impossible if I have to fiddle with settings. I need to take a class as the workshop I attended recently was really great, but it was more for tips and techniques regardless of camera type. I need help with my specific camera.
But overall, it's good.a= And I do like alot of the shots. Besides, after I get done cropping and highlighting it's not the same picture anyway.
Have fun!
And try macro to get in really close. It's neat.

how pretty!

btw ~ you can only set the marco if you chose AV and I believe TV, push flower button once for marco, hold the button in for super macro.

I need the last photo blown up and on my wall in the living area of my home....perfect color, perfect match!!

Rhea said...

VBF - Yep, my camera did that...all on it's own! lol I helped a little.

GoMommy - Thanks! I think my gift is that I take a million photos, so one or two have to turn out good. It's luck of the draw. :o)

KP - Thanks! I don't know that I'm good at it, I just do it a LOT and take a million photos.

Crystal Chick - You got it right, mine is the S2. I want the S5 though. Thanks for the head's up on the macro setting. I haven't been able to find my guide book for the camera...but I bet I could find one online. I haven't gotten into fixing pictures much... I want to get Photoshop Elements and try.

Me & My Puppies - Thanks for the info! That helps.

Chatti Patti - I like your color scheme in your living room if it matches the flower. very nice!

Thanks, everyone, for coming by and commenting!!

Jules said...

Oooo Rhea. Nice job.
Have you thought about watermarking your photos though?

Rhea said...

Jules - I do want to start watermarking my photos, I just haven't looked into it yet. Thanks again for the info...I need to it!
