I love taking photos and I can tell you that it's not always about the camera, it's the person behind it.

Natural light is best for taking photos, IMO. Get near a window, if you can, and turn your flash off. Hold your camera still or invest in a tabletop tripod to take the photo.

If you need to take the item outdoors to take the photo in natural light, then do it in a somewhat shaded area. You can use like a white posterboard to reflect light onto the item if it's too shady.

You can also use two sheets of posterboard (as the bottom and wall) and put the product on it to shoot. You don't need to buy expensive lighting, but instead use a daylight bulb to create that nice white light (instead of the yucky yellow).

Also, add a little creativity to your photos. I checked out your blog and you make the cutest things! Set them up in creative environments.

Good luck!
