I'm trying to create good macro shots under the "M" settings, but have only done the opposite.
I've tried taking one of a willow [out-doors] and it was out of focus. I tried taking one of my mom's roses [in-doors] on her dresser and they were too washed out by the flash. I don't know if the numbers on the left of the lcd mean the distance to aim away from [I'm guessing] the subject or what the numbers on the right represent.
What settings should I use for good shots?
