Most of the time you will want sharp images, so shoot at the smallest-open lens opening, which is actually the largest number of the f-stop, the numbers on the lens ring. This will give the greatest depth-of-field, which is the sharpness of the photo from the front of the picture all the way to the back.
A small lens opening f-stop is the largest number on your lens, such as 22, Tips on choosing lenses. Measure the shutter speed needed to shoot at your preferred f-stop.
Use your in-camera metering once you've set the f-stop, and see what it recommends as the shutter speed. And here's the best trick on metering I can give you: Don't automatically meter at the place you plan to shoot, especially if it's a white flower or a dark red one.
Choose something nearby that is a standard green, like the lawn or a medium-green leaf, and meter off that. Then set your speed based on that reading.
Then go back and compose your shot and shoot at that metered reading. In order to shoot at f-stops of 22 or 32, you'll need to shoot at a shutter speed that gives the right exposure for that f-stop. Compose the shot carefully, especially in close-ups. Look to make sure there are no distracting objects sticks and stakes, discolored leaves, debris, etc.
Before you shoot, check the depth-of-field with the preview button. Make sure the image is clear all the way to the front of the picture unless you're shooting an "arty" shot that fuzzes out the front and back, but make sure that's your choice, not happening by accident. The depth-of-field button is also very useful in letting you see distracting elements in your composition. Use a shutter cord to depress the button.
This will eliminate camera shake that often happens at slow shutter speeds if you press the button with your finger. If you don't have a shutter cord with you, use the camera's timer to automatically release the shutter without pressing it. Bracket on either side of your metered reading. You may also have a separate exposure compensation dial on your camera that lets you bracket by using this dial instead of having to actually move the f-stop or shutter speed dial.
