How do you take good pictures?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to post the well defined pictures of embyos, eggs, etc , but my pictures are CRAP. So, what's the trick? How do you position lighting, the egg, etc?

My rubber seal for the candler went AWOL. Is that a make or break issue?

Here are my sucky photos.





What am I doing wrong?

This is my phone camera
Rear Camera 16M+ Smart OIS/ Fast AF, Live HDR (Rich Tone)

Though, I do have a nikon with 2 different lenses.

My hand actually provides a candler. And always candle down into the egg from the air cell. Here's a couple of mine:
