|We've all seen pictures like this, most frustratingly on eBay and Etsy. Don't fall victim to the blurry detail shot!|
The magic button is the "Macro" button, found on all point-and-shoot cameras. It looks like a flower. Here it is on mine...
It is not in the same place on all cameras, but all point-and-shoot cameras do have it (this excludes camera phones, although some of them may even have it). When you click this button, your camera's brain now knows to focus very close up on things like flowers, bugs, ribbon trims, eyeballs, etc.
When you take your photo, move the camera close up to the object and click the shutter release button down half-way. This will focus the lens, and with most cameras you get a little noise and a box in the viewfinder to let you know it's focused.
|In-focus where you want, with a little depth-of-field for extra win.|
And that's it!
