Many people, including designers and photographers, use a strategy called the rule of thirds. This imagines your work area divided into a 3x3 grid.
In design, texture adds depth and tactility to otherwise flat images. Objects can appear smooth, rough, hard, or soft, depending on the elements at play.
Texture is the physical quality of a surface. Like form, it can be part of a three-dimensional object, as in the example below (a small prickly cactus in a shiny ceramic pot).
