In the end, it's all about the lighting.

I am particularly fond of the point-and-click camera tutorial, because most people really have no idea how much they can do with a fairly simple camera. The tip with focusing on the object first and moving the camera while holding down the release button I believe is priceless. I have first-hand experience how discovering this simple feature made a friend of mine from your average snapshot-taker into a pretty damn good photographer!
