    Little better now. Still out of focus terribly but much better than your usual. Try getting much further away then zooming in. What camera model is this your using? Maybe I can help you then.

    If your camera has good resolution you can step back for a more infocus shot then crop the surrounding stuff out. It should still be plenty good for the web by the time your done.

    Cannon Powershot S300. About 4 years old and not great... It has macro, but is best for far-away. I use it for real-estate work... I used a magnifying glass this time, Dustin, and I think that's what helped...

    I dunno if 2.1 megapixels is very good or not... J/k.

    Great plants! It must have taken a while to get a collection like that!

    As for the camera, the Imaging Resource indicates that you need to hold the S300 about 7 inches from the subject in macro mode. This should greatly improve the sharpness.

    Here is an example of the best macro performance of your camera:

    Your probably just holding it a little too close, it can be very difficult to judge the right distance on some cameras; I have often had the same problem.

    Thanks for that tip! I've been using it at about 5 inches...

    Expect better things from tomorrow's pictures.

    Thanks for the tips, look tomorrow!
