I have been playing with the camera on my laptop since I got the laptop and I have been running into problems with it being too dark. I asked Ethan to come and help (he really wasn't in the mood to help) but I wouldn't let him leave until we figured it out. I also made him sit in on the few practice pics.
Here is the best we came up with so far. I will keep trying until the picture is crisp and clearer.
