I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I've been noticing that a large number of the pictures posted are taken by people holding the camera themselves.  Y'know the drill, hold your arm as far out from your body as possible, aim the camera towards whatever body part your photographing and pray.  the pictures all turn out...well, with glares, blurry, too close and don't do the model or the piece justice. 
so this is just a suggestion to everyone, from someone who has taken scores of pictures of herself (my boyfriend spends several months a year halfway across the country...so i remind him what he's missing Grin!):  USE YOUR TIMER!  Most digital cameras have them, usually you can set them for five or ten seconds.  press the timer button, set the camera on a table or shelf or something and push the taking-pictures-button.  Model your hot stuff and you and your creation will look great, even if it takes a couple tries to get the angle right and all.  It's pretty easy to do and the pictures usually look sooo much better.
we all want to see what you've made, clearly if possible!  Also, ladies, do we really want to fuel the myth that we aren't very good at using technology?

It's not like it's the end of the world. ...Which is too bad, because that  I'm really good at.

Thank you very much.  When I tried to hold the camera at arm length, I was getting the dreaded "mug shots"  Now I have time to smile.
