Before taking an image pre-visualise before you set up. Visualise the photo you're trying to capture. Take some sample shots by shooting handheld, moving around, getting up high and kneeling down really low.
Take several photos until you're sure you're in the best spot for a balanced composition of foreground and background elements. Once you've found the best position, keep your camera in the exact spot and reach for your tripod before you shoot.
