    You don't need to use all CAPS to get help man. In fact it'll deter it.

    You're lighting up everything with that big soft light source. Not everything needs a big soft light. If you want shiny instead of cloudy hit it with a direct flash rather than what looks like soft reflected light.

    I can't see your photos. It says "Oops". I take hundreds of shots of vinyl records using a Nikon D50. I usually have the LP's under, or near, a light source and have the normal flash on. Usually with great results. I'd put a link for you to view them but don't want to appear to be hyping my record site. Let me know if you want to see them or discuss further.

    Oh, lastly (maybe most important) I usually shoot at an angle and not straight at the record.
