Hi! It’s Springtime and the flowers and trees are exploding with color! I have two pear trees in my front yard and they are beautiful when they bloom. Using the camera on my Bold 9700, I took this photograph (this is unretouched…that means this is how it came out of the bb). If you click on the photo, it will open bigger so you can see how clear it is.
Last July, I wrote a post about taking better photos with your blackberry (you can see that post here). One of the best things you can do to improve your photos is to clean the schmutz off your lens! And for the flowers and trees that are bursting into our lives, you can use the close-up focus on your blackberry camera.
Note please that your blackberry might not have the autofocus function; if you’re running v5 of the operating system and have a blackberry that has an autofocus camera, read on. If your blackberry does not have autofocus, you’re out of luck with the close-up setting described below.
If you do have autofocus, you also have a close-up setting. For these flowers, the close-up capability rocks! Here’s how you do it:
- open the camera on your blackberry
- press the blackberry menu key (it’s the one to the left of the trackball/trackpad)
- select options
- select the autofocus option and click on close-up
- press escape and save when prompted.
Here’s how it looks.
Now when you get in close to those pretty spring things, the blackberry can focus clearly and you can grab some great shots!
