    The problem with picture #1 is your shutter speed is too fast to sync with your flash.

    As far as the others, you need to concentrate on one thing and get that down, for example, composition. Work on that until you are satisfied then go to something else. Post them and explain what you are concentrating on and get the critique and you can do better the next time.

    Good luck!

    As mentioned...in #1, the shutter speed was too high to be using flash. Cameras have a max speed that will work...it's different for different cameras. Usually 1/60 to 1/250...so find out what it is for your camera and keep under than when using flash.

    #3, the shutter speed was too slow and you are getting blur from a)camera shake and b)subject movement. Also, the indoor lighting is giving you a color cast.

    #4 Also looks to be a victim of camera shake.

    No. 1 could also be the last shot in the roll. Sometimes, when you've shot the whole film (say 36 out of 36 pics) there is still some film left and the camera thinks another shot can be taken. If you have a counter, it will show 37. You might think you got an extra shoot (and you may) but more often, you get 1/2 a pic.

    In the future, just set the shutter speed to 1/60 and you'll be safe.

    The one a few down where you didn't know what happened, the flash didn't go off, for whatever reason. Not turned on, not charged, who knows?

    The tantrum picture is funny.

    The corn one is a bit boring.

    all the time? just run 1/60? or with a flash run 1/60?


    and yea i didnt have the flash on the camera it wasnt working then but i got it to work for the other pics

    Is there a setting I could use with the shutter and just kinda leave it for most my pictures? like 1/125 or 1/250?
