Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
This was a present for Mother's Day and I cannot get one crisp, clear, focused picture. I am using the auto setting to take photos of artwork, usually at a distance of a foot or two. I have read the manuals and have not found an answer. Please help.
If your artwork is behind glass, make sure you are not using flash. The best way is probably to set it on a tripod, put it in TV mode and slow the shutter speed down a bit to let more light in to compensate for not using flash. You will want to lock the exposure and focus on the art and not the glass by pushing shutter halfway down first, establishing focus and then continuing to push the shutter all the way down.
If you are less than a foot and a half away, try the macro mode which is the little flower button. If you are more than a foot and a half, do not use macro, leave it in normal.
Hope this helps.!
