I like your conversion. I think the flash is a little harsh. Have you tried using natural light? It would make a ton of difference! He's such a handsome little man!

Well i did that and every time he move it came up as a blur the part of his body he moved. I have a regular point and shoot camrea no setting's. How can I avoid that. cause i do agree with the flash.

Sounds like you aren't getting enough light, that is why there is blur. Make sure you have plenty of light and then you won't get any blur. I took quite a few nice pictures of my kids with my little sony cybershot point and shoot camera. Smile I still do sometimes too but with P&S's you just need plenty of good light even if it means going outdoors somewhere, finding a nice spot under a tree or something. Smile I can never get good lighting inside my house to use my P&S without flash. I get too much blur so I always use flash indoors for snapshots. If I am outside though and don't want to lug around my dslr I always turn flash off and use auto mode with flash off. Smile but this picture is cute regardless though Wink he's a cutie

Your flash is really your enemy in these recent shots....it's just reducing the quality of your photos so much and if you want your photos to improve, the first thing you need to do is figure out the light issue.

If possible, reduce the output of your flash on your Point and Shoot...some P&S cameras have that capability.

You may want to consider a P&S flash diffuser like this one:

OR better yet, get some more natural light and turn the flash off! Shoot next to a very large window, or even outside if it's not too cold where you are. Hey, you could even open the front door for more light.

There is also a ton of noise in your image which indicates that the ISO is much too high.

What camera are you using? Have you read the manual thoroughly?

I am limited to a P&S as well, so I feel your frustration. I would suggest natural light (outdoors may work if you dont have good windows. If you are going to shoot outside, then I would suggest reading up on open shade so you don't end up under-exposed too badly)... Also, read anything you can about your camera (online, manual, etc).

You have cute little models... so have fun practicing lighting situations.
