I found some really appropriate scrapbook paper for making tags for the merit badge cookies that I did. I bagged the cookies and wanted to get a decent picture of them, but the glare was horrible! I tried different angles, but still wasn't happy with the results. Any suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. (I attached the best picture I could get, and it still isn't very good).

They look good. I can see the design fine. It may be just that you see them "live" ..... but they look good in this pic.

You don't find the glare distracting? It really bugs me. Granted, it doesn't look as bad shrunk down. Maybe I'm being too critical.

You should PM someone who takes photo's with the plastic on and ask them how they do it.

Personally, I think the pic looks pretty good. I'm always unhappy with the pictures of my cakes as well.

Goodluck!!

Let me begin by admitting I'm horrible at taking pictures!

I was wondering if moving them to somewhere with natural light and then taking a picture without the flash would work?

I will have to try this next time. I was taking the cookies to work to give to a co-worker to give to his troop, so nightime was the only chance I had of getting a photo.

In my experience flash, and night time create the worst glare!! Try it in daytime and you will likely be pleasantly surprised!

they look great though! icon_smile.gif
