My Canon T3i does amazing things, which is apparent from my pictures and I have no idea how to use the thing. I just put it into auto mode and start snapping away and I rarely if ever am disappointed. One of these days I will spend some time learning how to use it, and see what I can do in terms of tricked out pics.
As long as your camera lets you control (a) where it focuses, (b) the aperture on your shots and (c) you've got an appropriate tripod going, the rest of it I think really comes down to lighting and controlling what's in your environment.
The Canon S100 was recommended by a friend of mine who is a tech geek.
Does anyone have a Canon S100? Any thoughts?
