me as well kef    David is the macro man im sure he will give you some pointers, i have done some but need a lot more practise hopefully it will be covered in the course im starting this month

KEF

Thanks Ann. Hope you enjoy your course.

Hi, KEF...well done with your first attempt. I'm not quite sure how the L25 macro setting works i.e. do you have to set the camera to macro, or does it automatically set (as some do) when the lens is close to the subject?

Shame the flash went off for the rose pic, but the others were nicely in focus.

Ann - is this the new club in Kendal?

Ah, that sounds interesting & hopeful.

Btw, I put the walking stick/tripod on my Santa list.....wasn't totally blown away by it, but it does function well as a stick.

On the subject of camera clubs, (although I've posted this link before) I do urge peeps who haven't seen it to take a peek at this website belonging to one of our club members. www.royhodgkissphotography.co.uk/

Roys pictures are awesome David something to aspire to, i have found another club that is part of the university of the third age so weather permitting i might go along it is held a Ambleside so not so far

David I have to set it to macro, then small symbol appears on top left of screen, but need to put my specs on to make sure I give it time enough to focus. So I'll be out walking with camera in one pocket and specs in the other

David K

I understand, KEF....I can understand focussing may be a problem. I suppose it's a compromise when you have a less sophisticated camera.

Mine has either manual or automatic focus and a electronic (eye) viewfinder in addition to the LCD screen......but of course, cost quite a bit more.

PS. That isn't the Nikon L27 of course!  

KEF

David, I'd better learn how to use this before thinking about an upgrade, amazing what you find on a camera if you wear your specs and read the guide 

Thanks for encouragement & advice.

KEF - Something like this should be achievable with your camera.....just be sure to have plenty of light

KEF i have to wear my specs for most things now and have an older pair on a chain when i am in the garden to do some jobs and have just got some distance ones for driving and TV, i seem to spend more time swapping from one to the other than doing things

Ann

Guess who hasn't been doing her HW?


 


 


 Above not in focus?


 Obviously run out of flowers

David K

Getting better, KEF

On your behalf, I been having a closer look at the settings of my Nikon L27 camera, which I guess is very similar to your L25.....bare in mind I just use mine as a point and shoot normally, so don't need to use it on anything other than auto.

If you press 'scene' you will see a display of icons, one of which is 'a bunch of flowers', select this plus the macro setting and it should be appropriate for most of the ones you are taking.
