I'm not too good at this

I mean posting my pages..... I get them done, I take the pictures, I upload them, I go to photobucket and get them up and then I realize that ll the pics are blury. I tried taking them with the flash and everything gets whited out so you can't see the pages hardly at all and if I don't take them with the flash then it's all blury so excuse my horrible looking pages. Honestly they look a lot better in real life than they do on the screen. I am capable of taking moving pictures, just not pics of pics.........

Oh and excuse the size. Photobucket hates me.

See this one turned out clear with the flash but the paper is all muted. It's really very blue with white fluffy clouds

Your pages are great.

Two suggestions: Use natural light to take your pics. If it is raining, you can still take it next to a sliding glass door, etc. Second, your camera should have a macro option. Figure out how to use that because without it you camera won't focus on close objects.

Thansk for the suggestion. I'll try it again.

they look really nice! I love the title on the first page. Are those brads? And the grass paper is perfect for the baseball page. Great job on getting so many page done!

Like Stephanie said, try using natural light. The shutter is having to close slower to gather light, so unless you could hold the camera perfectly still (close to impossible) they will be blurry unless you can add light. I try to always take my pics outside or by a window.

Awww...cute pages. I really like the baseball one with the grass paper! TFS! Stephanie and Charys gave some good advice on taking photos of your pages. Biggrin

No they aren't brads. Lets see if I can explain this. They were just round frame type things with sticky backs and white backgrounds. Then I stuck clear stickers onto them with the letters and thats what that is

They look really neat! Good thinking sticking the letters on them.

I can see them now at home! Must have been my computer at work.

I love the elegant simplicity of them all. The bath one is my fav I think. I like the bubbles over the picture.

Everyone else said what I would have said on suggestions for photographing your LOs... good luck!
