so im trying to take a picture of my school ID for proof for an educational discount but my iphone camera literally wont take a clear enough photo of it. the camera takes beautiful pictures from a bit of a distance, but up close its horrible. yet, the front facing camera looks crystal clear up close. any help?

Then take it from further away and crop the picture.
thats not a solution. i already tried taking it 6-12 inches away and its still not clear. no matter what i do it will not take a clear picture of something close enough to even read the "enter" wording on my keyboard. but the front facing camera takes pics like this just fine, i think my camera is faulty and the lens motor is broken or something.
