I see loads of great photos on the WIW threads. Seems like, no matter what I try, I can't get sharply-focused photos of clothes. Any suggestions?

BTW, I use a good camera and a tripod.

I use the setting macro for flowers... the one used to take close-ups of flowers.

Focus before you shoot, that means holding the button half down till the picture is clear. With macro it's vital to point, adjust distance, focus, then take. Theres a point where the distance [usually between 3-30cm] which is best set for close shot pictures.

Actually, when my own photos get screwed up, more often than not it's because I'm shooting from a distance but have inadvertently left the camera set in macro mode. FWIW.

I know this might sound silly, but if you're just using a simple point and shoot with your tripod, try to set it on the timer, so that you aren't touching it at all when the picture is taken...a lot of times the picture is blurred because of that tiny bit of movement when u push down on the shutter release

also, play around with your lighting/white balance so that you can get nice bright pictures without needing to use the flash...this way you won't wash out the picture and you'll get more unbiased color and detail
