Poor Unphotogenic Stitch Marker

She's much lovelier in person. I swear. We tried so hard today to get her good side. Poor girl. We can't even show the outdoor shots. Natural sunlight is so unforgiving.

First off, if you'd like to read my palm...


Thinking maybe she has bo...


Yellow is not her color...


Is this an ox?


Maybe a lovely sock will help...


Or some snuggly kool-aid yarn...


Snuggling with Santa...


Trying to get that star treatment...


And finally, resorting to posing with pez. Cause everybody love pez. Right? Right?


I hate my freaking camera.

It's not the camera. You were holding the marker way too close to the camera. If you look at the ox pic, that's the best of the bunch. And if you took it at a high pixelage, you can crop and enlarge and stuff to get what you were looking for. Play with your camera some more, that's what I had to do to get consistently decent pics.

I was thinking the opposite of turtlegirl - you are too far away from the stitch marker. Macro is meant for close ups, and you are too far away, judging from all the background in some of your shots. You should be able to get within 2 inches or less with the macro setting. You also will probably need good strong light, especially with a lower end digital. Pretty marker tho!
