Okay, I found these 3 hints in an email advertising John Greengo’s Fundamentals of Photography 2015.  We think they’re important enough to show some compare and contrast.  We’re interested in your thoughts, so please share!
1. Fill the frame. “Most amateurs don’t get close enough and their subject is too small.” Get a more confident and captivating shot by letting your subject dominate the space.

2. Avoid the middle. “Amateurs almost always put the subject directly in the center.” Use the rule of thirds to divide your frame and align your subject on an intersection of one of those lines. Shoot horizontally to make it easier to get your subject perfectly off-center.

3. Show the Best. Leave a little mystery in your shots by excluding elements. It leaves viewers wanting more and helps eliminate clutter.
