(insert repeat comment of being new here)
I'm not happy with the quality of my pictures. I'm sure some of it is my choice of background, namely i don't have a good plain flat surface at the moment. I can get some posterboard im sure but I don't know what color or how much light I need. I don't have many options in the way of lighting and don't want to spend a fortune on a good setup. What I would like to know is, what are some easy tricks to improve the quality of my pictures? I've tried fiddling with them in post but i have a hard time getting good color contrast and crispness of picture. It's a lot easier for me to just take pictures in the wild though if only because lighting is less important. I've included some examples for an idea of what I am doing and hopefully someone can point out what I'm doing wrong.
Also i keep getting an error for trying to upload or embed most of them, probably from the files being too big, so heres the link dump.
