Mise-en-scene can be defined as the arrangement of objects in the frame.
Keep errant objects out of the frame to avoid expensive fixes in post.
Do not center your subject in the frame. More powerful and pleasing compositions can be had by aligning your subject(s) along vertical or horizontal thirds of the frame.
