Hey guys, I'm BRAND NEW to this forum and also BRAND NEW to photography as well. I'm having an issue with my photos and was wondering if you guys would be able to help. Now, granted, my camera is not high quality at all. It's just a basic portable point-and-shoot type, but I still think you should be able to help me out. If you look at these photos: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a228/theutherwhitemeat/CIMG0280copy.jpg http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a228/theutherwhitemeat/CIMG0262copy.jpg You can see that in one the background is nice and clear, while the foreground is VERY blurry. However on the other one you can see that the foreground is decently clear and the background is blurry. Is there some way to clear this up so that when I'm taking Macro shots that both the foreground and background are nice and clear? Also, these photos seem to have a lot of noise. Is there someway to make them nice and crisp and clear? I know that it is a problem with my camera to an extent, but I would still like to create nice looking photos without having to spend a fortune. (I do have Photoshop CS3). Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks a bunch!
