Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
When I take indoor photos of people, sometimes there are pronounced shadows coming off them which totally ruin the photo.
This is usually a very simple fix. You may be holding the camera in such a way that one or more of your fingers partially blocks the built-in flash of the camera. When this happens, everyone notices the flash has fired, but they do not know that part of the light was blocked, leaving a part of the photo in the shadows.
Find out if this is the problem by picking up the camera as you might normally do, but while maintaining the same grip - turn it so that you can see where your fingers are in relationship to the flash on the front of the camera. Notice where your fingers naturally land when using the camera and and try to remember to keep fingers away from the flash. You might even let someone else try and see if the shadow is gone in their photos. Look how they hold the camera - notice the location of the flash and where their fingers are.
