if you are just a casual photographer then this are all the tips you need.
Step 1: First Rule
so its best to make as much pictures you can with your cellphone video camera or just a normal camera.
the cell phone is esspecially handy because you can carry it everywhere.
Step 2: Rule of Thirds (sort Of)
this is almost neccesary when making pictures of objects and you want to make a nice photograph
what to do:
1. get your object and push your shutter button halfway to focus on it
2. move your camera in such a way your object moves from the middle of the picture to the side of it
3. move the button all the way down
Step 3: Depth of Field
a camera only see height and width. but if you put something like a bush or a stone in front you create the illusion of depth
so instead of just making pictures make sure there is some naturall object in front
