Re: Why Are My Pics So Poor?

That's an interesting little discussion.  Makes me think along with understanding my camera I perhaps need to use a tripod, too?  For the sake of rigid control of distance to subject in order to put the depth of field just where I want it

as regards subject and background that's a bit mutable.  sometimes I want and sometimes I don't.

In fact one of my most common wishes is to have softly out of focus but identifiable background showing the 'palette' of the ground or foliage which is a 'setting' for the bloom or bud or whatever in question.

And often that bloom or bud is not one but many.  Aussie bush flowers often being so tiny I try to get shots of a group of them.  That's when I run into the need for a depth of field sufficient to cover the small discrepancies in distance from the camera of the different flowers or gum nuts or whatever...
