Is it just me or do you also have a "thing" about always turning the orange screen-printing on your Radio Shack 800 MHz antenna towards the front? For some odd reason I tend to turn the print forward as if it somehow makes a differenceWell ya did some excellent pointing out & to get a subscription for a year well that's priceless keep up the great info).

You can shoot on an angle also. we went to an aquarium and shot fish through thick glass on an angle and they came out perfect.A couple more tips about flash.
- do not shoot straight onto any shiny surface as you will get reflections.
- a Kleenex held over the flash will diffuse the light and usually results in less reflection and a more pleasing photo.
I think the original poster has done a great service for those that add photos!
One thing I might add, you have to start with at least a "decent" camera. Not a junk one....
