    It's an interesting take on him. Honestly, I don't know if I like the re or the copper better. The grapling hook is a nice touch, my man/

    Also, you want to make sure you review your pics before you post them. If they are comming out fuzzy, try retaking them. You don't have to go as far as Frenzy_Rumble, but a decent desk lamp will go a long way. Remember that the flash will distort colors, so you may want to difuse it. (Tape a piece of paper towel over the flash.) Then try to move away from the subject and zoom in using optical zoom only. This is how I take pics of my work. Good luck.

    That's not motion blurr in your pics, they are just out of focus. I don't use a tripod for anything I shoot, I just use the auto-focus, and take several shots to make sure I get it. If you're not familiar with auto-focus, just press the shutter button about half way, the camera will focus and beep, then press it the rest of the way to take the shot.

    Don't take them rapidly. Slow down, focus each one, then shoot. There is no need to rush.
