    I like this shot in Sepia. The dress pattern lends itself to that old style.

    * Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/60 second ===> 0.01667 second
    * Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 56/10 ===> ƒ/5.6
    * ISO Speed Ratings = 400
    * Original Date/Time = 2009:12:16 16:57:20
    * Flash = Flash fired, compulsory flash mode, red-eye reduction mode
    * Focal Length = 400/10 mm ===> 40 mm
    * Image Width = 2592 pixels
    * Image Height = 3872 pixels

    this is the problem, youre shooting at 1/60, and most will say if youre shooting under 1/200, you need both a tripod and a stationary subject.. try bumping up iso, shooting more wide open both in aperture and lens, and off camera or external flash

    On number one break the wrist the other direction. What I mean by this is pose so the wrist is breaking backwards instead of forwards.

    Thank you so much... so I pulled out my camera and played with it a bit and I shot that picture in portrait mode and it is set at the 1/60 and won't let me change it... so I guess that is the problem? I need to take shot like that in a different mode? Is the compulsory flash mode ok? I have to say that you have given me the best advice so far and it has really helped me alot! It was great for you to break it down (dummy it down for me)

    for starters try setting the camera on shutter priority and setting the "iso auto" to off and setting your shutter speed at 1/200 and forcing the flash then when you get used to that set it to manual mode, or hell start in manual mode

    is there a WRONG ANSWER NOISE BUTTON HERE?!
    Where does it say that you need to shoot under 1/200 for stationary? Flash freeze action. If flash reaches the subject it'll freeze the subject's motion. Yes, at 1/60 doing movement/action is a bit tricky b/c motion blur will occur but once again flash freezes action. By your theory, I can't shoot reception at anything less then 1/200s and yet, I'm at 1/125 iso 400, with dance floor at f/8 and background at 5.6 no problem oh and I don't have VR on my main lens.
    One of photographers I work for/with, shoot everything at 1/60. Portraits on tripod, everything else in hand and yet again - no problems.

    on P, many camera, especially indoors with flash in TTL will set 1/60, widest possible apertures, (since they are fixed on ISO) will adjust flash to balance with ambient light.
    Many photographers will say shoot in Aperture for portraits and shoot in shutter for sports. My problem with Aperture is the 1/60 indoors - it isn't a problem as far as motion, but it is a problem, for me b/c of the amount of ambient light I pick up - BUT THAT'S ME. Shooting at shutter priority, I minimize the ambient light but camera likes to keep aperture as wide as possible - and that's another problem isn't my personal preference.
    Nonetheless, many pros for portraits utilize the two.
    Once you get comfortable with 3+1 aspect of exposure, you'll move up to manual and won't want to leave :) 3+1 = ISO, aperture, shutter, speed + flash(s).

    Ideally, its better to have off-camera. but if it isn't possible, bounce it around against all sorts of surfaces and see the funky results you'll get.

    good luck

    i meant to say when shooting, if youre shooting at UNDER 1/200 without a flash, it will most likely be blurry, did not put it into context :p
