Pay attention to the the totals of the photo

Do not be afraid to make portrait photos - if, with the digital camera on its side.
Use natural features in the environment to make a frame for your subject or to lead the eye through the image.
Zoom in to compose a sense of intimacy. Be aware from your shots elements like the sun or the sky, which create a feeling of open space.
Experiment with the overal frame. Try framing your shots with lots of foreground and very little sky, or lots of sky and very little foreground.

A wide-angle lens will keep everything in focus while helping to maximise the ‘depth of field’, or feeling of depth in your shots.
Zooming-in will flatten the sense of perspective and make distant objects appear closer together.
Zooming-in will also affect the amount of your picture that is in focus allowing you to isolate details against an out-of-focus foreground and/or background.
Be careful to avoid camera shake when zoomed right in, as tiny movements in your hands become magnified.
