I agree with white.. the thriftstores have tons of white vases if that is what you want to use. Or the crisp look of a picture frame. Some people wrap a roll of papertowels with a velvet and then have a stand.. I don't have a decent camera either.

crispier pictures - do you mean with white background or I need a better camera? I'm using a Canon Power Shot....

I think it might be the setting in your camera, this is what I do, it's usually in automatic since I have no idea how to work mine yet and I've had it for a few years now.. anyway I take a pic from a long distance but zoom in closely, I let the whole background blur out so it concentrates in the item and not everything else.. kwim? I'm in no way a photog but I'm learning something new everyday..hth..

I've been doing that - if I don't use flash - the pictures are so blurry and unsuable. If I use flash - they get blown out. So I've been going as far away as possible, zooming and snapping. Maybe it's time for a new camera Now just convincing DH....

Ah, pictures. What a pain in the butt. My advice...

1. Build a light box. Super easy and makes things look more professional.
http://www.digital-photography-schoo...ive-light-tent

2. Use white on white or neutral background.

3. Use a white bowl instead of clear.

4. Stop using flash.

5. Get to know your camera. Try using macro for close up pics.

6. Use Picnik to crop and fix.

I've re-shot a million times and am still in the process of getting it right. Check out my shop to see what I do. I use all of the above.
