using webcam on my dell inpiron laptop

Hello-I have a dell inspiron laptop-
I am taking lessons from a guitar teacher online-I use his video program online to tape back my responses-
I notice that when I see him in a video- I can see all of him and even like a table behind him and mandolin on the wall-
when I tape my video - I take up the whole picture and I can't even get my right hand strumming and left hand fretting to both fit into picture-
Is there anything I can do on my end with webcam? to get more of me in the picture and be able to show maybe a little background like him?
thank you

1. sit at a proper distance from the camera..
2. try to increase the camera resolution if you can
3. if you use Dell's camera software are you still having the same problems?
