well arent you a creative girl. wait til about 9:30 am, then take them outside, no flash, arrange them on a fabric thats a neutral color to show them off best... anyway, they look like they could quite possibly be darling.

what she said. also check your camera's setting. if you are trying to get an up-close shot, be sure you are set on close-up.

one of my best friends in middle school was named Noella. :) i love that name.

your bracelets are super cute!

you need to use your camera's macro setting.

and it looks great! You're so talented, Jen!

They look awesome! I can't remember which website I found it but it gave instructions on making a small homemade light box just for that! All you used was a cardboard box and cut out 3 squares i in top, 2 on each side. You covered the holes with white a layer of white tissue paper and put 1 desk lamp on each side of the box near the windows!

Try it on a dark background and not outside. Or at least in shadow. Those are really cute little braclets.

Those are super cute. Check out my post "laila jo". I finished my washcloth lollipops and gave you props. Thanks again!

Do you have any black fabric you could use as background?

See if your camera has a setting for close-up (or macro)shots. It usually looks like a flower. It should help you focus more when you get closer to the bracelets. Also If you lay them on something white or black like a sheet of paper, they will stand out. And use the morning or evening "soft" light with no flash. Natural light is the key, but don't take them when the sun is too harsh. Good job on the bracelets by the way!

Jen, make sure you press the shutter button down half way to focus on your object. Then press shutter button all the way down to take the picture. If all else fails, bring objects d'art to the Dean home, and we'll get them
