Dear MrClean:
\015\012You didn't mention what kind of set up you were using or what parameters you have there in your shooting session so I will just give you my two cents worth on how I'd go about doing such a project.
\015\012When I used to do shoots for my ebay auctions I used a digital camera in combination with a tripod as hand-held macro phtography can be difficult at best. To get the best results I would recommend the following:
\015\0121. Use a tripod since flash photography in macro mode often
\015\012 results in improperly illuminated or overexposed pictures.
\015\012 Therefore you will need to be absolutely still in order to get
\015\012 clear pictures. Therefore set your flash to NOT fire!
\015\0122. Remember that macro mode on your G3 means that you
\015\012 MUST shoot between 1/2" and 1.6ft. Any closer or further and
\015\012 your picstures will be out of focus.
\015\0123. I suggest you shoot in the (P)rogram autoexposure mode as
\015\012 it allows for manual focus if necessary.
\015\0124. If you cannot achieve good focus using autofocus (your
\015\012 bottom indicator light near the viewfinder blinks yellow) then
\015\012 try switching to Manual Focus (the MF button on the back of
\015\012 your camera to the right of the viewfinder). Use the camera's
\015\012 Main Dial to focus manually. It is located in front of the
\015\012 shutter button at the top of the hand grip.
\015\0125. To ensure the least amount of camera movement use your
\015\012 self timer to trip the shutter.
\015\0126. Try setting up artificial lights (photoflood or whatever you have
\015\012 available) at 45% angles to your subject for the best results.
\015\012If you do these things I think you'll get the results you're looking for.
\015\012Hope this helps.

I was using my Nikon D40 at son's baseball game with the 55-200 mm lens & was too close to the fence when zooming since it tapped the fence. Now it makes a squeaky noise when trying to auto focus.
