    Try using a browser developer tool for this kind of exploratory CSS work.
    I use Google Chrome's built-in Developer Tool and it's really easy to expose the webpage's underlying HTML and CSS.

    Now that you know the style, from being exposed by the Developer Tool, you can add a new style to override it.

    You ought to add new styles externally, not within the theme's files. Changes to the theme's files will compromise the theme and be compromised when the theme updates.

    External changes can be made using a Child Theme or through a plugin that provides Custom CSS functionality.

    I recommend using the Jetpack plugin and its Custom CSS functionality to hold your CSS modifications.

    Did you manage to reduce the gaps? Your custom CSS would be very welcome... ^_^

    I managed to reduce the spaces from CSS by analyzing which tags needs to be edited using Chromium's Developers tools.

    For the record, I found out two changes that needed to be done to reduce gaps above the header image and between the header and post area.

    Bold parts represents changes:

    #site-logo {
    float: left;
    margin-top: 1px; /* I changed it from 39 px */
    margin-bottom: 1px; /* I changed it from 13 px */

    .hgroup-wrap {
    padding-top: 25px;
    padding-bottom: 20px; /* I changed it from 45px */
