A few tips here for people looking to take pictures of their problems and post them to obtain some advice from dentists.
1. Set your digital camera to macro setting (the little flower)
2. Take the picture outside Best in bright light (I'm in Florida so ther's a lot of it) Much better colors

5. Take multiple pictures and submit the one in focus
And here's a video guide to taking photos of your teeth:
