One of the most important tips is to always try to fill the frame with your subject. Also, look at the corners of the frame to make sure nothing is in the way, such as fingers, doors or other unknown objects.

    Yes, not only fill the frame, but as you say, scan the entire area before shooting (if you have time to). Nothing worse than a telephone pole coming out of the top of grandma's head.

      I agree with derrick, you should carefully scan the surrounding area before you take the picture because you might miss something that might screw up the picture. I've seen an example of this in the newspaper once, the article was about the West Nile Virus so there was a picture of a large mosquito, but the way the photographer framed it, it seemed like the mosquito was sucking blood right out of a persons head.
