I've gotten blurry photos in the past too. Usually indoor lighting
even with a flash isn't great for henna at the close range you take
the picture. Especially if you are taking the picture of your own

It helps if you put your hand against a light background like a white
sheet. Outdoor pictures of your hand will also come out much better.
You will still want to use the flash.

Different lens have a minimum focus lenth. Some won't focus until you
are 1 foot to 1 1/2 foot away.

Kodak makes a good 800 film that is great for indoors and low light
with great color and it's not very grainy.

A tripod might help the bluring if you don't have a steady hand.
Auto focus would help too if you aren't already using it.

If you have a zoom lens and you aren't photographing your own hand
stand back a bit more so your lens can focus and then zoom the lens

Are you using a point and shoot, a zoom or an slr ?

Hope this helps some.

Good Luck,
