In life, people are trained to always create things that are almost perfectly even. While symmetry and perfection are things people look for, try and take pictures of your subject off center. Beware of auto-focus features that lock in to whatever is in the center of the lens. Use manual focus instead, and lock your focus before snapping the picture.

Take successive photos of your subject if there is a chance that it might move. Certain subjects, such as wild animals, won't just wait patiently for you to take your photo. In this case, take one shot quickly so that you have something to work with. Then, if the subject hasn't moved, take more shots with better positioning and composition.

A great photography tip is to make sure your shots have depth in them. An easy way to achieve that is to be sure that you have a background, a middle ground, and a foreground. Having all three of these will give your pictures a sense of atmospheric perspective.
