RE: hum......

I use an old digital camera... sony mavica with a 14X optical zoom
1024X768 Pixels limit---MVC-FD91 for those who would like to know. I
have had it for -- ever. I can usually get a decent photo of anything
with it. Even some that try to allude me. (I am hoping Santa brings me a
new one, as it is on it's last legs) 

But Kitty I think you are right, might have to bring out that 35mm one
that has been in the closet for the last 15 (?) years :(... But do I
remember how to use it?

I am also taking these inside a greenhouse. Seemed bright enough, but
wondering if the additional florescent lighting is another problem.
Maybe I should have turned it off. Another issue is trying to do this
while they are planted in a tray of plugs size. They are all so darn
close together!

Very challenging for a non-profession photographer......
