A great photography tip you should keep in mind is to never compare yourself to someone else. If you're constantly comparing your work to someone else's, you're selling your own work short. You must learn to value and appreciate your own work, and not worry too much about everyone else.
Play with the shutter speed on your camera to catch unique and wonderful photos. If you have the right shutter speed, you can get beautiful photos that would normally happen so fast that the human eye couldn't process it fully. Try experimenting with shutter speed and a tripod at a stream or waterfall for some great photos.
In most portrait photos, the subject's eyes look directly into the camera. Have your subject express a variety of emotions to capture a unique photograph. You could also try to have the people in the picture look at something in the frame.
