My quest for crisp photos!

Hey everyone! Hope all's well with you! I've been trying to take decent photo's over the past few days, of various things like pendants and canvas work, but whatever I do I can't get them crisp and clear!!! I've got a fairly good camera - 8.1MP. I've tried it indoors, outdoors, artificial light, natural light, with a tripod, without a tripod... you get the picture! (No pun intended!!) I've even attempted a photo box... the less said about that the better... Soooooo frustrating! All the blogs I visit have lots of lovely crisp photo's on them so I thought I'd ask for some advice... anything you can suggest will be much appreciated!! x

Hi! Do you have a the little tulip macro symbol on your camera? That allows very close closeups that are really crisp. I suggest putting it on a tripod and holding down the button slowly so it auto focuses and using the macro flower. Let me know how that works. Guess what? We are going to England soon...ok not Wales but I will be closer to you! ;o)

I did the lightbox and followed the directions to use posterboard...the light didn't go through. So I switched to vellum and like that better. Also don't zoom in so much...you can always crop it later.

Ooo, thanks Mere! Yes, I can imagine vellum working really well, I'll give it a try! :)

Yes I would suggest a macro button if you had one on your camera, I also use a scanner for flat canvases and paper works. I guess that depends on how big your works are. Mine are all no bigger then an A4.

will be interested to see how you get on.

I find my photos with the macro button are even more blurry! My top tip is using a photo editing package. This image you took of the book seems blurred at first but when I enlarged it , it is crisp and clear. Auto focus is the key.

Thanks Katherine, yeah I find it easier to use the scanner if I can!! :) And thanks Laura! Hmm.. so you find the macro button makes things blurry? I've been trying it over the past few days and I've found it works great! But, like you say, you can't beat a good photo editing package for those essential little tweaks!!

I love this. It's wonderful!

The key is either enough light or a single lens reflex digital camera. Standard digitals just don't have a fast enough shutter unless there's enough light on the subject, or unless you use the flash. The shutter in an SLR is much faster and will therefore take much sharper pics.
