I have a DSLR. I have 3 high powered natural light ottlites that I use. I do minimal editing (whatever is available in iPhoto when I upload) And like the other girls said, PRACTICE!

Lots of practice, research and patience. I am a professional photographer and I still learn new things every time I shoot. Natural light is important for decent lighting, but it also depends on the type of lighting. Shooting in "natural light" at high noon, is not good lighting for shooting. Usually late afternoons is a good time to shoot in natural light. Flash is not good for photos. If you are photographing items with reflective surfaces, watch the angle of the item to the light source to help avoid glares or "twinkles". Hope this helps some. I do think you are able to get decent photos with point and shoot cameras, as I have seen some photos by people who don't have dslr's and they look pretty good. It really depends on the light you are shooting in. If you are shooting in a little darker lighted area, a camera in auto mode will normally keep a shutter open for a longer time to let enough light in for a decent exposure. Longer shutter sppeds=camera blur, thus giving you fuzzy and out of focus shots. Of course there is so much more to good photos then this, but these are a couple of tips to consider and practice as much as possible. Good luck!

DSLR = Digital Single Lens Reflex, basically the professional cameras you can change lenses on

Ottlites are full spectrum lighting. It's like taking photos outside using natural light. Colors don't get washed out or distorted. And I like using them because I can adjust my camera to take pictures without the flash.

Practice!! And for me the big thing was lighting! I was taking pics in my basement (where my "office" & work space are) with halogens and a single bulb "spotlight" and BOY were they horrible. I've started using my daughter's quiet time as picture taking time. Perfect light in my living room in the afternoon. I've also always edited my photos using PhotoShop, and that takes lots of practice. It gets better with time.

I use filtered light (window) in the bright afternoon sun. I have a canon rebel and a vinyl backdrop.

When I normally take my pictures, I make sure that there is ample natural light and have a basic background. Such as taking a picture of the bow or whatnot on a blank piece paper. I take mine on just a basic sheet of printer paper.

Hope this helps!
