Question

Whenever I try to take pictures of my knitting projects, the image is never really that clear, or the color gets distorted.  (actually, the color issue happened for both of these examples).  I’ve tried without the flash, but then it seems to take the camera longer to snap the photo, giving my hands a good chance to shake while waiting for the camera to snap the photo.

My camera: Nikon Coolpix S3000

Do you use the same camera? Any suggestions for the settings I should use to get better quality images?
