Increase your f-stop and bring in more light (window, door, bulbs, etc). To reduce noise keep the ISO at 1600 or lower. Shooting wide open at 2.8 will give you a very shallow DOF (smaller focus range) and the areas in front/behind of the DOF will be out of focus.

Experiment with f11-22 and moving back and forth from the subject.

Shot with the Sigma? How are you liking it? Its a bit louder than I expected, it makes noise when changing the aperture. Bought from Amazon warehouse, Maybe I should change it?

thanks for the tip. I like the sigma. For the price, is good. Mine was brand new and it does make some noise. I read this is normal.  I use it when I go for walks mostly.
