To take this one, I used the night setting, a 2 second delay (or I would be in the photo) and laid the camera on the ground, pointing up to the trees. I'm never quiet sure what I'll get when I can't look at the view finder while photographing. This takes a few tries, but I like this photo the best.
This was with the night setting. I was sitting down and holding the camera low to the ground. Notice that the photo is blurrier than the above one. This is due to holding the camera, verses leaving it stationary. The night setting keeps the lens open longer, so the light can expose the photo better. If you are holding it, there can be a blur, due to your natural body movements. I used a 2 second delay on the above photo, so I could get out of the way of the lens before it opened. Otherwise, a blurry me would appear in the photo.
This is using the night setting, a 2 second delay, the macro setting and propping the camera in the dirt. This took a few tries, but this is the best. The subject is a ground covering vine, but the subject for this isn't as important as the technique to capture it.
