My husband bought me a new camera for Christmas - a Sony NEX C3 with 18-55 mm interchangeable lens link to company website. I LOVE this camera and used it extensively on our recent trip to Portugal. I had not, however, practiced taking close-ups and using some of the more "creative" features that this great camera offers. So, on this lovely sunday in March, I suggested we visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens link to website and practice "our" photography. This is a lovely venue and I have only recently become a member.
The day was perfect for photography - a little overcast which allowed the colors of the flowers to shine through without too many shadows and overly intense light. This camera has a "creativity" setting that is a lot of fun to use. It allows you to take the photo in a number of modes such as highlighting only one color, sepia or black and white, overly intense "comedic" colors and others. I practiced taking photos of particular flowers/plants in a variety of modes - the results are very interesting!

|Another interesting group - the photo on top-right was actually a "red setting" this plant did not read fully read by my camera which resulted in this two-toned photo|
