Sometimes you need to look at things from a different direction. In life, and in photography.
Look through your viewfinder - that's the little peep hole on the back of your camera, not to be mistaken with the screen - and change your perspective. Actually, before taking any pictures go for a walk and look at everything around you from different angles. Look up, look down, angle your head in all different directions. Looking at everything like it's a rectangular photograph.
The perspective becomes even more dramatic when you are looking through the viewfinder. Looking on the bigger screen or shooting with a phone camera allows too much of your peripheral vision to intrude on the composition of your photograph.
Here are some samples of what I'm talking about:
Now take your camera out and go play.
I am happy to answer any questions you have (to the best of my ability) now, or after you tests out shooting at angles.
