Default Re: Sending out a picture SOS!!!

Try the DIY lightbox or using natural light/lamps. Your're going to have a hard time with your on-camera flash, for sure. That's what's giving you the glare. Those flashes are terrible! Use a tripod, or make your own stand (books on the table or whatever) and use your timer mode.

Also I'd suggest a darker background, if you have a piece of black material maybe? Or white, a piece of poster board or large sheet of paper works well!

Good luck, it's a PITA for sure. Always takes longer than you think it's going to too...
