I still haven’t completely figured it out either BUT I’ve found if I take the photo from further away and then crop it to zoom in, it’s more clear/crisp.

Use the digital macro function on your camera (looks like a flower).

Any really good pics are taken with a macro lens. That type of lens allows you to get really close to something and see all of the details. If you get to close with a regular camera lens, it can not focus on the details and will be blurry.

I don’t know what you mean by “good camera”? but if you have a DSLR and don’t have a macro lens you’re kinda SOL. ๐Ÿ™ I have used my point and shoot for my ring shots because for this… it just does better.

Put it in good sunlight light, but not direct sun, use the macro function with no zoom and flash off holding the camera about 5-6 inches from it.

@Ms_Smitten: good enough. take it outside or near the window. put it in a soft shadow. turn the dial/slider/whatever to the flower, and shoot away. it’ll take a few shots to get a good one ๐Ÿ™‚

It looks like you took those in direct sunlight?? I would try going to a sunny area and taking them in SHADE. There is still plenty of sun in the shade, and it’ll make it easier for your camera to focus without getting hazy.
