I don't want it to be soft, or blurry. I've tried everything I could possibly think of to make it shaper including self timer, lights on, off etc. Only thing I can think of is to take one photo of it not lit (which would be sharp), one lit for the flame and glow and combine the two. Here's what I've shot recently. I have others that have a nice heart shapes glow around. Is there too much light bouncing around to get a nice clean shot? It looks shapr in the lens of course so it's not that. :/ Edit: I should mention I need help because I want to turn it into an 11x14. And unsharp does not help much if I haven't mentioned already.
