IN response to your question, firstly for PnS camera there is no provision to remove the white area unless if you don't use flash. As for external flashes, you can always angle UP the flash or angle it AWAY so that the flash doesn't fire directly onto the subject.

As for the glossy surface, you have to understand light travel straight so you'll need to shoot at angle to the subject so that the light from the flash isn't reflected back into the camera. Otherwise you got to use reflectors to light up your subject. Simple reflectors can be made from white styrofoam boards.

I may be wrong but this is what I follow when I shoot. Any other setup may work as well so be creative to try out different settings.

Noise are those specks of white or coloured (blue/red/green) dots (usually called pixels) found when shooting in high ISO settings, typically 800 and above and also under low lighting conditions. Noise can be wanted or unwanted, depending on the intention of the photographer. It may enhance a picture or completely destroy the aesthetic appeal.

The purpose of noise? It serves no purpose other than being a nuisance. You can't control the amount of noise in a picture. It is due to the circuitry in the sensor compensating for the low light entering through the lens and thus "overheating" the pixels. It only happens when you shoot in high ISO settings.

If you don't understand what I am talking about, you need to read up on the fundamentals of photography, especially how a digital camera capture a shot. Do a search here or on the internet and I am sure you can find something to help you understand better.

Meanwhile, keep shooting and keep learning!
