    Heya ashy2ivy, welcome to ThePhotoForum!

    These are some really wonderful black&whites of your little girl, I am happy for you (and us, mind ;)) that bribing her into posing for you with M&Ms helped ... now it's just a pity your photos show in all these different sizes. I can go put the missing spaces between each of them but can't do much about their size...

    What do you use as your studio and you light?

    Hello ashy2ivy, welcome to ThePhotoForum!

    I suggest that you post your pictures at the largest size allowable here so that.

    I would make some suggestions for future pictures:
    1. don't use the on-camera flash - it removes all the nice shadows,
    2. don't use such dark backgrounds for your pictures. - the flash is trying to compensate for the darkness of the background and thus blasting light at the subject.
    3. use a longer focal length - 28mm is way to short.
    4. use a smaller f stop -f8 or so so you get a greater depth of field and a better sweet spot of the lens,
    5. use a lower iso for better detail

    Thanks!! I have a make-shift studio at it's best... lol. Lighting is a large west facing wall with three big windows and the flash which is not the best I know. I'm just starting in this craft and have so so so much to learn!
