3017'ers Know How To Get Loaded
Don, try focusing the camera on something flat, right at the focal point. I assume you're using a digital??
Also, possibly try a narrower arpeture. It should give you a deeper focus.
ISO Sensitivity auto 50 100 200 400
Are either of those what you are talking about if so what should I use I did geta tripod and it help the macro with no flash everything defalut or auto
Basically, if the shutter speed is fixed, or automatic, you'll need the ISO (measures "theoretical film speed") set to 200 or 400, the exposure setting (similar to aperture) stepped down to a low setting. Most cameras (high end 35mm or digital) will set the shutter speed automatically according to the 2 settings you make. Basically, for the pic you're taking of your rack, Macro is useless.
Increase your depth of field via aperture, manual focus, and tripod. Fiddle with your white balance settings till the color looks right. And maybe increase your iso to 200.
When there was nothing, there was God. Then God spoke.
I completely understand the frustration you are having. Given the type of equipment you are using the photos are Damm good.
Raise the ISO to 200 or 400, get a tripod, bring a light into the room and bounce it off the ceiling a work light that clips on is a good one.
Grab some white cardboard to use as a reflector to add some indirect light from the side or bottom to reduce some shadows.A pizza box would work. Play around. lastly if the color is off or the photo need to be adjusted. post it in the darkroom and we can all work on it together.

Amazing looking collection!
Do you have dimensions for the shelves you created; They seem very efficient for storing both DE's and Straights.
Amazing collects- something to strive for.....
