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
hand.:)

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
closer.

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

Hope this helps some.

Good Luck,

Natalie
