Soo some noob pics...a lot of pointers needed!

Well first off i need to say you should learn the rule of thirds. Google it and read about it. In all of them they could have been framed a bit better.

the last one, and the one with the ceiling fan are the best. But for the last one your DOF could have been a little more, and the fan one could have been framed better.

The one with the flower is not very sharp, and the lighting isn't too good.

Edit:
I don't photograph my PC too often but for the few times i did i displayed a white image on my monitor and faced the monitor towards the computer... gave it a nice even lighting effect.

The monitor trick is perfect for computer shots...specially if you have a big monitor...
another neat way to do comp shots is to get a gorrilapod..i think bestbuy has em or you can look at frys or something they are pretty cheap....they work great

Internal flash is ehh i dont like it ..so dont use it...let natural light take over for pics

thats my suggestion
What settings did you shoot the fan at?

Not sure what kind of camera you're using or if it has manual controls or not, but I think with most of the shots try opening up the aperture a little bit for more shallow depth of field.

These were a mix of manual and auto...the last one was auto and the fan one was my first attempt at manual, some of the other computer ones are manual too. I don't remember what settings I used. I just played around until I got one that looked right.

Thanks for the rule of 3 suggestions. Makes a lot of sense.

I read about the monitor trick and completely forgot about it. Thanks guys.

the flower & leaf shots looks OOF or really soft to me. The PC pics are OK, last two are nice ones, the others just look like your snapping pics without some thought to it. When shooting inside a box you have to play the angles to your advantage to make the images stand out. Not sure what your trying with the ceiling shot, but I'd do something like F8 to F11, iso 100-200 and exposure 1-3 seconds on a tripod and see how it looks. Might take a few tries on the settings and might need to use -EV
