Step 5: Connect the Dots. What I mean by this is if there are multiple subjects in the frame, try to use some sort of line like a river in a field to connect the subjects to one another to create a story for the viewer.
Step 6: Perspective is Everything. Everyone views images at eye level already so try to take some new angles, get closer or farther to try make the subject more appealing.
Step 7, our final step: Lighting is Everything as Well. Trying to take a picture in the middle of the day can be a bad time to take said picture because of the harsh lighting. Try taking a picture at sunrise or sunset because it offers a more pleasant light or try to take a picture in the shade. This should give you a nice soft light for your background.
