This is a technical-related question, I have a regular samsung digital camera (nothing fancy) and I've been struggling with the TV photos recently because the camera focuses the toy and whatever is on the back becomes kind of blurry (since the focus is on the toy) or it will focus whatever's on the back and the toy will become blurry... Has anyone experienced the same? Do you know if it's something I can arrange with the setup?
Any tips are more than welcome! Thanks (:

That's just a normal optical effect due to the lenses.
Some cameras have a setting that's called something like: "portrait and landscape" and has people in front of a mountain as an icon or something similar.
You could also manually adjust aperture and shutter.
But generally if you hold a tv in your hand and want a major sight like a castle/church or landscape in the background, the two are too far apart to both be in focus and the tv is too close to the camera.
You can solve this by getting further away from the tv when you take the picture: either set the tv down on a wall or so, or have someone else hold them.
Or when that isn't possible/convenient I just take two pictures: one focussed on the tv, the other on the background.

What also worked for me: Focus on the background first, then move the TV into the picture - and snap!
