Xsi + 18-55mm best settings for Nature Imaging
Aug 17, 2009

Just got my first Dslr (Xsi) two days ago together with the kit 18-55mm IS lens and a bower 52mm uv filter and started off with some flower photography but I'm not sure if I'm setting up correctly

Usually I used Av mode auto focus selecting the AF points were I want it to be sharpest also I usually use the long end of the lens (55mm)at F/5.6 so I get some distance and a nice burley background set the WB to shade or other to get a lesser blue cast and evaluative metering Iso between 100 and 400 shot in Jpeg due to card restriction
Here are a few samples Opinion and rotten tomatoes welcome

Regards
