Dewy... I kid you not - I have so many of the same shots, as my parent's place has lots of rose bushes...

Are shuttertalk and dewy related? or has dewy been shooting in shuttertalk's parent's place?
I don't have many flowershots; but I've taken one or two before, but its not here on my laptop with me at the moment, it's backed up on my sister's computer; I'll retrieve it soon: some time this week Smile

I don't have any roses around my house; unless I jump over the fence to neighbours house, or take the ones coming over to my fence, then theyll think I'm spying on them Smile haha

Yesterday while trying to shoot some closeups on leaves on trees, it was quite difficult to avoid the blur because the wind would blow it, causing it to move and come out of focus Sad

What settings did you use to take those? Did you use flash (I'm guessing you didn't?)
I like the water/dew on the flowers, I'll probably bring a spray bottle with me next time I go flowershooting, and maybe some things to reflect some 'natural light' around it Smile

*hint* peter, let's go araluen Wink

Get a peice of strimng and large chunk of metal, or other heave object, and put it around the brand/stem and that could possibly hold it down and make it a little more sturdy, just guessing, no promises.

No flash, just the Macro mode on my camera, and about 20-30cms away from the, the water/dew on them is/was natural the shots were taken on a 'cold' day at about 10:00am

Dewy, I noticed that the white rose shots are a shade or two darker than the reds... I just happened to have read about this somewhere... In any of the 'auto' modes, your camera will always seek to make the image overall grey (18%, actually) by adjusting the exposure. To shoot a predominantly bright white subject, you have to over-ride the exposure... you can either go manual, or some cameras have an EV compensation feature to brighten or darken the photo.

I'll try to track down where I read that...

EDIT: Found it... http://www.shortcourses.com/using/exposure/chapter3.htm
