Default Sending out a picture SOS!!!

Okay- I spent waaaaaay too much time today trying to take pictures of bottle cap clips. They were either VERY blurry or VERY glary (is that a word?)! I finally gave up and put some sucky pics on Facebook to promote the clips. I have a Sony Cybershot that I hate! Do I need to make a light box? If so, what kind of light do I need to shine into it???? I don't want to spend an arm and leg. Do you think a light box will help with the glare/blur???

Here is an example:

you need to use the MACRO mode... look for a dial or a setting that has a little flower (tulip looking) and use that setting

This might sound silly, but is your lens dirty? I use my DSLR 90% of the time, but I noticed last time I pulled out my point & shoot that the pictures came out smudged looking like that. And surprise, surprise it was because there was a smudge on the lens. I felt like it was such a "DUH" moment, but it was as simple as cleaning the lens & flash real well, then I had pretty pics again.

Taking pics outside or in a light box will definitely help them to look better, too. But just make sure your lens is crystal clear first.

If you could get a small tripod to steady the shot that would probably help . Daisy that pic is amazing

Thanks for the offer, but I don't sell these for very much---and by the time I send them to you, and you send them back, and the cost for your service, I would actually be in the negative.

I'll try that, considering it's the ONLY thing I haven't tried--LOL!!!!! I did take some outside, but they still had glares.

Thanks for the tips, girls!! Think I just need a new camera!! My first mistake was to let my 3YO walk around taking pictures with it!! Who knows what she did to it!!
