You have to play around with the camera.  Flash/no flash, backlighting, zoom, also from different angles.  Some bees talk about a micro? feature, maybe-not sure.  I have a 5 stone ring and it took a while to get decent pictures and they’re still not great 

 

ps. im from philly too, howdy neighbor

I had the best luck putting my hand in direct natural sunlight and shooting without flash.

@KatyLovesJoey: i work in montco.  i agree that you should have tons of light and photograph without the flash, you should have the best luck.

What works best for getting clear pictures is to find your camera’s macro setting. On my camera it’s a little symbol that looks like a flower, and I think I’ve seen other bees say their macro setting is the same. That’ll let you shoot pictures close up without everything being blurry. And I always turn the flash off, because that just washes everything out. And make sure you’re STILL. Like statue still. If there’s even the tiniest shake, things can be blurry. I was having trouble for a while because when I’d go to push down the button to take the picture, that was making the camera shake. So I set the self-timer to 2 seconds and re-stilled myself before the picture was taken. I hope that makes sense and is some kind of help!

I hvae a 3 stone and I got a few good pictures sitting in dim lighting in the evening and using the flash.  I don’t know a lot about my camera, but that seemed to work for a few!  I got some good ones turning the flash off and holding VERY still, but that was harder. 🙂
