She worked longer then I did but I took more pictures

Great focus on those macros!

I'm still trying to figure that out.

Switch to Macro - choose Creative - and you can change you "focus area" - depth of field. It goes from F4.5 up to F8. But make sure the shutter speed stays high. Works pretty good in direct sun. Also use spot focus.

Well done, Clint-

Oh, by the way, did you get any work done?

Thanks, Clint, I will definitely try that. I have been simply using the macro flower or macro object pre-sets. I posted one of a crepe myrtle bloom over in the "close-up" forum. I would like to get as good as you are at these!

Nice Shots, especially the 4th.

Are you talking about fz38 (35)? Where can I find 'creative' settings?

Yes I use the FZ35 (38)

Click over to the Macro setting

It gives you a choice of
Flower
Food
Object
Creative

Selecting the Creative setting lets you change the DOF from F4.5 to 8

Hope it works for you. The camera does all the work.

Thank you Clint! I found it!
But this seems similar to Aperture Priority mode, isn't it?
Or are there any other adjustments that 'macro/creative' makes in order to help? Do you know, if any, what are they?
I have the feeling that mmmany of these preselected modes (macro, flower, food, sceens, AP, sports etc) do overlap ALOT each other.
Thanks, again
