Thanks again guys. Fireengine, I would recommend a nice DSLR such as those offered by Nikon or Canon. My primary camera is a Nikon D90. Here is a link to Nikon's D90 page: Nikon | Imaging Products | Nikon D90

I shoot most of my pictures in a light box with twin diffused lighting on the right and the left of the box. Hope that helps!

Nice work and the green one came out very well. I too have a lot to learn about tube and blank painting. Great success with a camera that makes you work to get good results.

The D90 was discontinued in May 2011. (You may find a good used one) Replaced by the D7000 but I believe that too is soon to disappear. Models are now only current for 2 years or thereabouts. Other models to consider would be D3100, D3200 & D5100
Like the pics but agree about the tube/ blank painting.

Better than I ever got from my Sony Cybershot, but I'm guessing your's is at least a decade newer than the one I used before getting my Nikon D40, which is also no new model either. Regardless, it takes great photos and I normally only use it at the 3 megapixel level for most my photos (mostly web postings, not prints). Just pointing that out to state you don't need a new double-digit megapixel camera to take decent pictures. The larger lenses and sensors of the DSLRs in general help as much as anything. The focus controls, white balance and exposure settings are THE most helpful functions though, on whatever camera you use.

As for your photos, here's my thoughts: They're very nice dramatic close ups of your pens. I can see them posted on the walls to show off your photography skills as much as anything. There's great close-up detail and clear focus. They'd make a good to supplement overall view photos if you're planning on selling online also.

But I'd also be careful about overstating the colors of your pen when posting photos to sell them, I've had some customers that have commented their appreciation for my photos depicting the pen as it really looks in hand rather than embellishing colors to the point that the pen they receive looks nothing like what they saw in the etsy/ebay photos.

I have been shooting a D70 since they came out and have been happy with it but just got the bug and upgraded to the D7000 w/16-85 f3.5-5.6. So far I am very happy with it. Guess I'll give someone a good deal on the D70.

Did I read that correctly, you had to work on the sensor inside the camera?
