Finding a complementary background and getting the right kind of lighting helps.
Then after playing with the Tone Correction, Brightness, and Contrast Features
in the software which comes with the camera, I load the image into Windows Paint,
and reduce the size of the image(how much varies). Usually it is somewhere between
20% and 40% of the original size. Lastly I crop the edges of the image so that I am
left with an image that is no more than 640 x 480 pixels. Usually the image is smaller.
This one is 360 x 240.
Yeah, okay, looks like I'm not going to post any pics.
But thanks for the input.
