Thank you, Katherine, for your well-considered, respectful, and 
intelligent primer on cameras.  I, for one, very much appreciate it.  I 
do have a question regarding film.  It sounds like there's unlikely to be 
a single film that can be counted on to render accurate colors across the 
color spectrum, and that's a problem when one is shooting irises that DO 
encompass such a broad variety of color ... sometimes within a single 
bloom.  One of the most glaring problems, however, is accurate blue 
rendition.  I've tried Kodak and Fuji films, but all I ever seem to end 
up with are blue and near-blue irises that turn out lavender-purple on 
film.  Of course, this may be as much the fault of the mass market labs I 
use as it is the film, but I wonder if there's a specific film you can 
recommend for shooting bluish irises in the garden under natural light.

Again, I appreciate your taking time to share your expertise.
