How to get rid of whitespace/margin between 2 divs?

Issue

Im in the process of making a sort of meme/troll website that I am messing around with and kind of applying everything i learned so far in HTML/CSS, but I have come across a problem that I can not figure out. In the picture below there is a block element with "Article" in it and then a picture above that. But between the below space and the picture at the top there is a whitespace between the two. Ive tried the following: using * to make all the margins 0 on the page, getting rid of the margin on the top pic and the bottom section but both seem to do nothing. Is this just something I have to deal with or is there a way around it?
