Solid advice this, thanks! It strikes me when looking trough some recent photos that many of them would have benefited from getting closer, too many times there’s too much empty space

A good exercise is to try different cropping with all of your photos. Back in the film days we'd "hand crop" (use our hands to block out different bits of the photo). You can do it in photoshop as well. Just try a few different crops and random and see what works and what doesn't. There is no right answer and sometimes there are 2  or 3 or 4 different photos in one shot.
