    if possible, don't use onboard flash. If you have a speedlight, bounce it off wall, ceilings, or anything that's bright and/or reflective. You'll get much more natural and flattering lighting that way. It will give texture, form, create less flat lighting, and if done right sometimes you can't even tell flash was used.

    I think the second shot is the most pleasing. It's the one that has the least flash effect, as there is some shadow to the side of his face. I think the horizontal framing works ok there, as he is laying down. In the other two, there is to much empty space for me that isn't used.

    I'd avoid getting too close with that lens, like with the third shot. It's a slight telephoto on that camera, but it's still not strong enough for a full frame face. I think it's better suited to upper torso, or if you do want facial portraits, stepping back and cropping.
