    Do you have a light meter?
    You need more than one light source.
    I like the second one best. The others seem to need something.
    You could reflect the light to the back on the first and third. That would help.

    yeah, it looks like the light you're using is way too harsh, try bouncing the flash off a ceiling or wall if thats an option

    Play around to get rid of that ugly shadow. You may need more than one light source. Is this an on-camera flash you are using?

    No its just a portable IKEA bedside light - fairly strong though. I have a window, but that doesn't really make much difference. I'll have to find another light.

    You might think the light looks strong but your camera won't. You'll need a bit more power probably.

    Also move the light around so that shadow is cast somewhere other than in the field of view. Move the light closer to get a softer look.
