Use your common sense. Look your surroundings for ample sunlight. Do not take photos when the sun is behind the object. Watch to see whether the lighting is sufficient for shooting. In case where the light is not sufficient use your camera’s flash to fill the shadows.
This term means how you are positioning your objects .Here the question is comes, that why you are taking the photograph. Sometimes you like a moment and just want to capture the spontaneity out of it. You do not pay attention to the detail that whether to take close focus, blurred background, portrait or anything else. The moment is important not the composition.
However, sometimes you cannot really tell that whether a collection of photographs are of the same instance or different instances. That’s the magic of photography. Great photography can drive you to conclude that all the photographs are entirely different from each other, while all of them are clicked in the same location, same time and at same instances.

Grab the camera and start shooting for yourself. Start with outdoor shooting. That will be the easiest and inexpensive way of learning. Change and note down the settings, catch as much shots as you can. Then see the difference. You will be learning when you compare your images clicked by varying your camera features and settings.
