Framing: When framing the picture, try to fill the frame with relevant and interesting elements
Emphasis: Include a focal point of the photograph, a subject that is emphasized.
Angle of view: Take pictures from the subject’s eye level to capture it realistically, or change the
angle to alter the point of view
Balance: Create a sense of weight for the elements within the frame; some objects will have a
large sense of weight and some will have a small sense of weight.
Rule of thirds: Offset your picture to help focus the viewer’s eyes on the subject.
"Macros" aka Close-ups: Take close-up pictures to capture details and highlight specific objects.
