    Heya King, welcome to ThePhotoForum, and congrats to your first camera (outside the phone), and to a cute kitty such as this one :D.

    Since you've decided to join a photography forum, I gather you also want to learn something ... and the first thing that springs to mind upon seeing this photo (nice and sharp, with a really cute subject!!!) is: try to avoid letting the camera flip open its in-built flash as often as you can. Try to work with ambient light. Start taking photos on bright days outside, steady your hand, compose your pics there, and gradually move indoors (if need be) and work with the given lights there. But the shadows produced by the in-built flashes most often are quite ... ugly.

    Though nothing can really make any pic of this kitty "ugly", she's too cute for that! ;)
