THE PAIN! I did a quick work on some levels, took literally 2 seconds, just going into photoshop, level screen, by removing the dead area of information for your levels you will see almost 1/4 of your level range had no info, it adds to the picture looking flat.

Sadly, prepping for Photo imaging usa over here, but first thing i thought when i looked at your image wasnt pose or talent or anything, just that it looked severely underexposed.



A quick before and after of adjusting the levels on your shot

Okay... others have mentioned how flat the image looks so I'll just mention the first thing that struck me. Do you see the shadows that I've pointed out? Those are caused by two things. First, the flash is too close to the point of view of the lens. I don't know if it is an on-camera flash but it's pretty damn close. This will also contribute to the "flatness" of the image. The second issue is that the model is too close to the background. This gives the shadow somewhere to go and be noticed.

You have a ways to go. Others have mentioned the flash too close to the camera, the model too close to the background, the image being over exposed. I don't know if this is film or digital, but either the film or the white balance setting doesn't match the temperature of the light. Or the scanner that was used is not calibrated. There is not enough detail left in the image to color correct it. Some other things to think about are the camera and flash too close to the model, the dirt on the floor/carpet, dirt on the backdrop, wrinkles in the backdrop, backdrop hanging in limbo above the floor...

ok i do the picture in my attic, haven't much natural light (really no light from outside) I use garden spot (150W) on one side no flash. I'm a beginner so I try a few things like that. for the background i can't put it far away. if you've got cheap trick to give me for lighting there are welcom, i'm not a photographer i just like taking pics.

If you can't get the backdrop further away, then at least try to diffuse the light source. Try getting some semi-transparent nylon and putting it a foot in front of your light.
