Welcome to POTN.

There are no shortcuts. Practice, and learn from what you did (view your EXIF files {metadata}). Read here, other sites, Youtube videos, etc.

Buy this book.. Understanding-Exposure (external link) ; read it and it will help somewhat.

Practice more.

Good luck :)

There are no secrets. #1 isn't a bad shot, but could be better. How many shots did you take to get it?
Did you try exposure compensation? (EC)
Did you try bouncing any fill light into his face?
Did you try any vertical format shots?
Did you try any at f/8? f/11?
Did you ...

Shoot in good light. That in itself will bring out the best in your pictures. Light is the difference between a good picture and potentially great/epic one.

Corollary:
Understand that MORE light isn't necessarily BETTER light.

thanks for reply and for your time ,here is answers for your questions :

How many shots did you take to get it?
absolutely i take a lot of shots with different setting as possible to understand what is the suitable setting for each environment but most of them become bad darker or lighter or blurred.
for example for 50 shots at the same environment or session only 3 or 4 become acceptable

Did you try exposure compensation? (EC)
no is that adjusting meter button marked with a “+/-” icon it makes photo looks brighter or darker and makes photo lost its natural color


Did you try bouncing any fill light into his face?
1-if u mean a second light source by external flash the answer is no ,all i have is built in small flash
and that's difficult part for me it makes photo looks more lighter or darker some times u don't have time to measure the space between the camera and the object or to make change to the flash setting -/+ ,however i am planing to buy external flash but not sure if it can solve this.

2-if u mean the main light source like sunlight yes but sometimes the object doesn't facing sunlight
and enforce u shot in possible skylight light i think i need buy foldable reflectors or bounce but its difficult to carry and hold especially when u r alone with kids.

Did you try any vertical format shots?
yes i think way of turn the camera in a horizontal or landscape depend on target or the view

Did you try any at f/8? f/11?
as i said i tried to shots with different setting of f/stop ,speed,iso returning to exposure triangle

===============
finally i am glad that my post reviewed by expert like u and i am wonder if i could gets some advice
and thanks to all other expert advice

I don't know what secret there is, but to understand exposure is the best "secret" anyone can give you, even an amateur can give you that "secret"
