Default How do you Take Good, Clear Photos of your clippies?

How do you all take good, clear photos of your clippies? I've tried and just can't seem to get them to look good. I've even modified them on Photoshop. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

it's the setting on most cameras that allows you to take clearer close up pictures. Usually the symbol on the camera looks like a tulip.

For me, I first had to buy a better camera. My old one was not cutting it. Then, I do what Wendy said. I use the tulip and take pictures in the day time and dont use the flash. Seems to bring out the true colors.

You can also put a think piece of white paper over the flash and it works (but you don't want it to think.. I think i was using a reg piece of computer paper folded over and just taped it over the flash.. But i bought a new camera and don't have to do that nemore... But the Macro mode def helps!!!

I hate photographing purples!!!! ALWAYS looks blue to me! I read somewhere that that is a common problem. there are certain brands of cameras that are supposed to be better than others, but I've forgotten now what it was.

My wedding colors were a grape purple. All my wedding pictures look like the bridesmaid dresses were blue, and that is from a professional photographer!!!!

I have a professional camera so I don't have any problems indoors for something close up like that...but I try to take them outside as much as I can because they still look better no matter what. Plus, the walls in my room are a yellowish color which makes it 10 times worse taking pictures inside with no natural lighting for anything somewhat farther away. One more week and we'll be out of there and I haven't packed up one darn thing yet!!

The lightbox helps too. Try searching the forum cuz I know there's a thread. With the purple, try from different angles outside because the light has to hit it just right to get the purple color out.
