I do a lot of nice buttwraps but have had no luck at all getting good pictures to post or use to advertise. I'm at the point where I don't even try anymore.

 

What kind of camera are you using to get those nice sharp pics of your buttwraps Billy40?

Salt, a digital camera. I have a Fuji Fionepix 4700, and to be honest, I hate the way it takes pics. My Dad has a Nikon Coolpix 990, and the photos come out so much clearer.

 

All I do is point and click, no more fancy editting, just crop & post it on the net. I try taking the pictures before I apply epoxy, after the Cp has dried. This way there is no glare, and nobody points out what a crappy job I did applying CP (I don't need to be told what I already know - lol)

 

Sometimes I use the flash, but mostly I have 2 8 foot flourescent 40watt bulbs above my bench which supply more than enough light. Sticking a white piece of paper behind the wrap also helps if things aren't working out for you.

 

That's about it, I wish I did something special, but it's mostly the camera. I think mine has 3 Resolution settings, which I do not have in front of me at this time, but I'll let you know when I peek at the camera next time.

Billy got me started on my nikon Coolpix. I'd also say that a 'macro' lens & a tripod are a 'must have'.

Film type cameras still take a better quality picture than a digital,unless you get 6-7 megapixels.But,digitals are plenty good enough for the web,& a lot handier to have.You can get well over 100 pics on a card before you need to download to a computer program.Most computers have 5-6 photo programs installed when new. Also,the camera will come with 1 to a few programs ,too.

I like to use the higher resolution settings,then crop the photo to reduce the size of the file(no sense uploading a ton of background). Files under 150 kb will load rather quickly.

The best photos are shot outside in daylight,but out of direct sunlight.The tripod insures no blur what so ever.
