Seems like everyone is posting pictures of their gardens and flowers. I just got Scott Kelby's Digital Photography book from the library and thought I would try out his "flower technique". Keep in mind that I am still using a Kodak point and shoot---

My front yard is St. Augustine grass but the backyard is a wildflower meadow-
I'm trying to get a good picture of it to show you but for now--

These are the wildflowers that grow in my backyard--

I tried for some close-ups--

These are referred to as Beach Sunflowers--

These are Gaillardia--also known as Blanket flower--

So what do you think?
Not too bad for a simple little point & shoot--


  1. Quite good I think! I use a point and shoot also (although I am coveting the Canon Rebel). It must be lovely to have a wildflower meadow in your backyard!


  2. Megan, I think your photos are great! Such beautiful flowers. And you are telling me thse grow wild in your backyard? Lucky you! laurie

  3. Megan, Great pictures! I still use a point and shoot. You did a great job. I need to check out that book. Lisa

  4. Hi there,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello. Your flowers are GORGEOUS!


  5. You are doing a great job! Those are wildflowers - Pretty ?! All I have is a kodak easyshare. It does have some different settings. I need to take the time and figure them out.
    Enjoy your week.
