Look around your house for something ordinary to shoot. Better yet, open a kitchen drawer and take out any object. Now, shoot it from different angles, up close and in different lighting environments. Experiment!
Walk down the street, stop randomly and look around. Pick an object, study it from different perspectives and then shoot. Play with shadows and light. Get down on the ground or shoot from above. The sky is the limit!
