I'm guessing the answer to this question might be "the lens", but being a newbie in photography maybe that's too predictable...
Alright, so I am shooting some handbags, and I am trying to replicate the quality of the previous photographer (who was a professional with professional equipment (I have a D3100 Nikon camera, he had... well I have no idea). I am going to show you two pictures of different handbags, the 'worse' one (with the out of focus points) is mine, the other one (the tan one) is his. How can I get that crisp clear image?
I have tried manual focusing, auto focusing, zooming out of the picture, coming closer to it, but I am just unsure as to how I can make this happen.
Thank you all in advance.
P.S: Tried shooting it in vertical too and in a smaller frame like he did... same issue.
