I was expecting a red flower, then I realized this is not the same as Phrag Tara (Don Wimber x Mem. Dick Clement).NYEric said:
Phrag Taras is (boissierianum x pearcei). This is a very light colored one Helen Hirsch saved for me.
NYEric said:I set it on the portrait mode, then the macro setting. The camera automatically used the flash, but the photo is washed out. When I took the flash off the and tried focus manually, the camera doesn't stay in focus. I will try again w/ the camera set on Auto. I want to post the photos because the plant blooms from the top and there are more buds below!

If you dont have a tripod, try resting the camera on a box or crate at the approx shooting height. Im too chinsy to buy a tripod so far, and ive improvised at times when needed.
What happens if you back off a foot or 2 (or 3)?
Thanx for the advice, every time I push the button the camera jiggles and the exposure time is so long... If I back up I don't get the close-up.dave b said:What happens if you back off a foot or 2 (or 3)?
