Everything is blooming in my garden, so I have 3 great pictures for today. I find that I prefer using Aperture Priority mode rather than program automatic, especially when I’m photographing flowers. It isn’t any more difficult than automatic and gives me more control while still giving the correct exposure. I like to use a large aperture to get a narrow DOF, which I think looks better for these shots. I’ve been shooting raw almost all the time now, since I can still get over 600 shots on my 8GB SD card and it lets me do more adjustments.
