    This is a pic of a card I made... and it did not come out so well. It looks horibble on my site. I see there is a small DOF issue. What can I do to take this pic better. And how can I keep the pink from reflecting? Thanks :

    The info:
    1/19 sec.
    f/5.0
    Canon EOS 300D

    Taken in a light tent with white velvet background. The lamps are just florescent lamps. Nothing special (its on my wish list tho!). No other lights on.

    Thanks.

    I would start by adding contrast.

    Ok... here is a new one (same pic) with added contrast and my husband got rid of some of that awful glowing pink. How can I set this up in the tent so that the pink does not glow? Also... I seem to have a major problem with contrast in all my picture. I hate adjusting it in post processing. How can i fix that problem when I go to take the picture in the first place? Thanks

    As for the glowing, I think you need to turn down the saturation a bit. Adding contrast will make it glow more, so it is going to be tricky. Keep playing with it, and treat it as a learning experience with your software.
