The Simple and the Obvious
This may seem too simple and obvious... When you are taking a picture of someone ask them to look to the left or right of the lens of your camera. That slight angle works wonders. If you remember to do this one simple thing you'll find yourself deleting fewer pictures.
Now on your end, you will be looking though your viewfinder. Do not center the person or object in the viewfinder, instead aim as if you are looking just to the open space around either side of them.
Lets move on to scenery. In the case of scenery in photos, take along a 4 foot step ladder. Climb up the ladder a few rungs and take the shot looking down at that slight angle. That little bit of perspective change will give you a very different picture.
Another photo tip is when taking a picture of something small, just try to focus on the object only, not the background. In the case of a puppy or other animal you will be surprised.
It's time to quit being an amateur photographer thinking only about what's in front of you and start thinking about what's going to make the best shot.
