Default Close up flowers with N95

Hi again,

I was at my mother-in-law's... she had some beautiful flowers... Whilst she was not looking, I quickly balanced on a piece of furniture in the sunlight. I used the settings on my mobile phone to do close-up... messed around with other settings... and here is what I got. Note that the tips are white, but with sun... they are very bright. Anyway, I adjusted the camera settings on the N95 and managed to get a nice black background... mind you, this is in midafternoon... but I am chuffed to bits that background came out the way I wanted it. Sorry for the quality of the picture, but hope you like it anyway. Also, to the right is the original photo... you can see where I removed a couple of things from the background... but somehow, I am not happy with the graininess of picture on the left. Ned

Ordo, where've you been. Thanks. Yeah, this is a neat phone... but would you believe that LG at 8 mp... Anyway, the N95 has a lot of landscape, portrait, close-up, etc features, and you can set the ISO, sharpness, contrast and exposure compensation. Take care! Ned

Oi, simple, cheers for that... Just can't wait til I get my new DSLR... Wish I were back in Plymouth, Dartmoor was only 12 miles from house... love to get a lot of pictures there. Anyway, with this Nokia phone camera, I was really chuffed to bits that I could mess about with the settings and get a pretty dark background... even though there was so much sunlight... I only had about five minutes to monkey around. Cheers and all the best! Ned

You really make that phone work well for you and sure you are going to love having a dSLR!

You lived in Plymouth? I lived there all my life until Feb this year when I moved to Egypt!

Once again, due to the circumstance, using a phone camera, it´s amasing what you can do with that phone.
Best regards/Daniel

Hello, Mark! Wow, you're a native Plymouthian. I lived in Plympton, just take the road up and it isn't too long until you're in Dartmoor. Thanks for your kind post. Ned
