You don't have to be a professional to take really strong photographs, all you need to know is the basics of compositional structure analysis(sounds big but it's not)
I wanted to show how easy it is to take what you have and make strong photographs with them. These are some photographs of an area a couple of yards from where I live and I used an old lamp pole to help with compositional structure. (This is my first Tutorial so bare with me and if u want any adjustments or explanations just say the word =)
I HOPE THAT THIS IS REALLY HELPFULLY(FROM AN ART STUDENT)

Cut out the "L". This will leave you with two L's because u folded the paper. Connect these two "L"s at the end to make a frame with paper clips. This frame can be adjusted from time to time to get whatever size frame you want
Now that you have your frame and that you're happy with it, hold it up to whatever you'll like to take a picture of.
Make sure that the scene through you're frame has a horizontal and vertical coming through the frame in the form of an "L". The horizontal and Vertical must be connected in you're frame
With step six in mind put down the frame take up you're camera and snap the scene. This will leave you with a strong photo and after a while you wont even need the paper frame because you'll start understanding you're camera's frame and how you'd like to align things better within it.
I HOPE THIS IS HELPFULL
