You’re holding your camera too close to your miniature.
What you need to do is this:
1) Set your miniature on a flat surface (a table of something) 2) Put a blank background behind it (an A4 page should do) 3) Place your camera about 8″ away from the miniature (most camera have a focal length of about that) 4) Zoom in to make the miniature bigger and to fill out the picture. 5) Place some light behind the camera and turn your flash off (if you have a couple of light sources or even a diffused light source, it’s even better) 6) Take the snap!
The focal length is important, this is the minimum distance at which the camera can focus properly. It’s bette to zoom in than to move the camera closer. You might lose some detail when you zoom in, but at least it won’t be blurry.
Hope that helps.
