Two questions:

One, how do you make your picture show up in the posts? I finally got one in the gallery, and am counting that as an accomplishment!

And two, please some advice on photographing layouts! I took a buncha pics tonight, but in order to keep the flash from glaring, had to angle the shot, and that just doesn't look as good.

Help me, please!!

Lots of us take pics of layouts during the day when the sun's out....

That's pretty much when I take mine, too. Or, I go to a very well lit area & turn off the flash.

good ol' outdoors or under a light but make sure your camera flash isn't over the pic....i can see my little blinking light flashing if it's in front of the photo which will create a big glare....
other than that, you can make a light box and put white tissue paper on the sides and leave it open in the top. i did that to photograph smaller things and it works great. cheap and easy.

I take my layouts outdoors on a sunny day. I usually put then down on the ground and try to take a pic from on top. I love that idea of a light box though...I think I'm going to try that with one of our moving boxes!

You all are just HILARIOUS with that sunny day thing--if I wait until there's sun, I may not post pics until spring!!!

Tried again with some indirect lighting with the flash off, and it's better than it was, but not good. You all are absolutely correct about the natural lighting--it makes a HUGE difference.

Thank you!

I try to get in natural light as much as possible, but there is a way to get good shots with a lamp, but you have to know how to work with your WB (white balance) and ISO settings. I am still experimenting with my camera, but the natural light is good, but just make sure it's not direct, sometimes it drains the color. I also know that some edit it with photo editing software too. On occasion it does help the pic quality. Good luck. Let us know what works!

Definately natural light works best, but it doesn't have to be sunny. Smile I use the light from a large window and can "usually" get pretty clear shots. Smile

maybe soon, maybe soon, we will have some sun.

the gloom is starting to get to me a little bit. it's gray, and muddy, and rainy,
and gray, and muddy, and rainy some more . . .

and it's supposed to get cold again this coming week, so all of you with that lovely natural sunny light streaming through your windows, count your blessings!!

In thew winter I stick mine on the floor beside a window. It doesn't need to be really sunny, but the natural light helps ( and there's less glare). Then I stand over my LO with the camera (no shadow since I'm inside!!) and take the photo as straight as possible, then crop it once I upload it.

When it's nice outside I do the same thing on the patio. Smile

After trying everything, I have been photographing on my mantle. I have a spotlight and it is a perfect place. The important thing is to try to do it without the flash. The hard part to me is getting it straight, so I don't have off kilter layouts!!

First, I always try and shoot in the daylight. Natural lighting is the best. Sometimes I am forced to shoot at night but I always have to use flourescent lights. Never use a flash, it will always glare. Just turn it off. Same advice practically as everyone has already given.
