As it appears that the only ‘in-focus/out-of-focus’ images I can capture with my little point ‘n shoot camera are ‘macro’, I have here tried to play with macro setting to see if I could produce some interesting images that are out of the standard macro mode.
Okay, my attempts at this are not perfect but it appears that using the ‘macro’ mode while photographing non-macro photos can result in an ‘almost’ shallow focus photo – the key seeming to be that there has to be something in the foreground for the macro mode to focus on.
On the other hand, most little point ‘n shoots have a macro mode that grown-up cameras would die for! Here are some macro shots of flowers that demonstrate what a little point ‘n shoot can do if it has to.

Great subject 🙂
What kind of p&s camera are you using. I bought a Lumix zs30 for our trip to France/Belgium and I love it..except in low light indoors conditions it is really horrible (or is it me?) Superb 20x Optical Zoom with leica lens.
a waterproof Nikon Coolpix with 5x zoom – I’m not crazy about it and it’s starting to be unfocussed at the edges so I’m looking around for something new – I might go for an Olympus waterproof (for some reason I’m always getting wet so this is a necessity). I had one before and I liked it a lot more than the Nikon. The Nikon is only medium bad in low light though…
