There used to be a blog over on the pro site but I guess those are all gone now…

What kind of camera do you have? Does it have a way to switch to manual focus?

If it has a macro mode that may help.

Yes, a macro mode will help.  If you don’t have it, you may be too close to the subject for the camera to be able to focus.

Also, it might help to use a tripod if the shutter speed is slow.

Use the macro setting on your digital camera. (Usually a little flower icon or under your menu/settings you should be able to select a setting for close up shots)

With the setting on, slightly depress the button on your camera and watch how it focuses. If it’s out of focus still, reposition your camera either closer or further away from your ring and try again. Once it is in focus, hold the camera still and snap a few. I recommend turning the flash off just in case of harsh lighting.

Go into a room that is well lit. I use my kitchen or bathroom.

I hope this helps. 🙂

Mine always looks blurry in pics too and I have a Sony Alpha 300.
