One thing that's nice about this forum is that they have devoted an entire section to photography. You'll find a good bit of info there regarding everything from how to choose the best camera for you to how to get rid of glare in your pics and even how to do some neat tricks with Photoshop and PaintShop.

 

Aryanun, who is a long-standing member here and a real pro at photography created a booklet last year for a class she taught at ReaperCon. You might find it very helpful.

 

The file is PDF, approx 225 kb in size.

Good luck with your pics!

And Spike beats me to the punch. I was coming back to do a post, and here is my trusty photosidekick, Spike, complete with link. :wub:

 

 

Makes me want to ponder the idea of an orc conversion...

 

 

One with Egyptian-style accoutrements. :devil:

 

Back on topic... there's some more information required, as well. What kind of camera are you using? Digital or film, and what kind of setup do you have? What brand/type of camera are you using (Coolpix by Nikon or Canon Eos Rebel, that kind of thing)? Knowing more information will allow us to help you easier.

 

Also, if you have any kind of sample picture you can post, that would help a lot.

What is the exact name of the camera?

 

Pull back with the camera, you might be too close to the mini. Even Macro can have its limits.

 

Macro is usually a tulip/flower icon. Do NOT use ZOOM.

 

Put the camera on the table, then take a test shot with the camera resting flush on the table from two feet away. Then close to a foot and a half, then one foot, then to 8 inches. This should give you a feel for how your camera focuses

 

If putting the camera on the table improves the pics it takes, get a tripod. Macro is HYPER sensitive to any motion.

 

See you in shutterbug!

:;): Thanks for the tips, I know I should be posting on the shutterbug section, I discovered it soon after I made the origonal post. I am useing a Kodak easyShare CX7300 (digi) and the problem with my pics is that they all come out extreamly blurry, with a huge glare, I will try takeing the pics at a further distance, I already have a tripod and am actually rather experienced(sp?) with a regular camera, I'm just clueless with digis. I'll go ahead and post this topic on the shutterbug fourm I just thought I'd reply here as well, thanks for the help, I look forward to (hopefully) takeing clear pics of my models to be able to post them. I will also post a pic of how they are currently comeing out a bit later on today, I just need to get on my other pc to do that.

CX7300 standard focus distane is 23 inches and I am pretty sure they are not equipped with a macro mode. (my old one didn't have it) Take pics at appx 30 inches and use a really good editor. Don't be surprised if they still dont come out great, it isn't your fault.
