Try Experimenting With Composition – . Don’t take pictures with the subject in the dead center of the photograph. Remember to use the “Rule of Thirds”. Imagine the photograph is divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines. The Subject of the photograph should be placed along the lines or their intersections.This helps make photos more dynamic and compelling.
