As Mop says, if you find a wall you like, take a variety of shots, including ceiling/floor connections and corners.
Here's a few mantra style tips:
Photograph on an overcast day, if you're outside. Direct sunlight is bad, diffuse light is good.
Always take two shots of the same subject, varying any camera settings you're not sure of. Sod's law says one of them is bound to be unusable.
Shoot flat surfaces from as great a distance as possible, with a long lens - on a tripod, especially if they contain any tell tale parallel features.
Try to stay at right angles from your subject, like a normal sticking out from a polygon.
Other than that, it's basic camera use and common sense.
