These are 2 monks and a green skull. I made one monk and milkweed* made the other. We made them for a school project a long time ago. I made the green skull a week or so ago. Sorry about the pictures... THey arent very good. I just got my camera last night.

Why don't you remove them and repost 'em when you get your camera figured out and can get better closeups so we can really see the details?  Maybe you could also tell us a bit about why you made the monks (and who Milkweed is  Huh).

lol. good idea. Well first I will start with milkweed* She is my friend that I know in real life and we almost always post on the same boards. We are both homeschooled and a few years ago we were doing this project where we were making diaromas for a medievil thing. one was a farm i think. One was some knights and one was a church with monks. So we make sculpey monks. Once I get my camera to work better i will post better pics. My camera isnt good with closeups. I got if for my birthday and my parents got it for me and they said it got good reviews but it doesnt take good close ups.

Oh, too bad about the camera... which one is it?... sometimes the closeup function is kinda hidden or you'll need to use the zoom instead. 
Or, do you have a scanner?  Just laying things on the bed of a scanner can take a pretty good picture, even of dimensional items.  If you try that, put an open box over the items on the scanner bed too which will allow you to keep the top open without going blind  Shocked nd also help get rid of shadows.

Thanks for the explanation about milkweed (and hi, milkweed! Grin).  Love the idea of the Medieval dioramas... if you have any photos, would love to see them here or on another board (post where they are on this thread though so I'll know where to go).

I will ask milkweed* if she has any pics of the diaromas. my camera has a closeup funtion it just isnt that good. In the reveiws it said the camera is pretty good the only bad thing is you cant take good close ups. I have been trying and it is really hard with this camera. I have the option of returning it and getting cash or a diff camera but I like this camera because it records video and i can put it on my iPod. I know you can get other cameras that can take video but I like this camera. And I dont really take that many close ups.

Well, I don't know if this is true in your case, but I found when researching digital cameras recently that most cameras will claim to have "a closeup function"... the kicker is that they can define "close-up" as anything closer than 18-24"! (which is usually the closest one can get to the item being photographed with any old camera, including cheapie disposables). 
Personally, I go for the closest I can get in my close-up function --at least 4", and preferably down to 1" or so), because anything between that and 18" isn't really a true "close up", just a marketing ploy.

Now some cameras have a zoom, and a good enough one that you can get a bigger image in the frame without a closeup function by standing back farther and zooming in ....but some zooms give only 1x enlargement, and that's not a whole lot.   Plus, how close you can get the camera to the item, and stay in focus, is still an additional variable.


Good luck,
