Phone captures photos (black background) on its own. How to I stop this?

I assume you mean it takes blank photos when in your pocket. This could happen when the side button is set to launch the camera and gets pressed accidentally in an enclosed storage area like a pocket or purse. 

Go to Settings/Advanced Features/side button and either turn off the double press action slider or choose open app as the default.  I'd opt for turning off the double press feature.

 

It could also happen if you have the camera quick launch widget on the lock screen and it gets multiple taps while in your pocket. If that's the case, then eliminate that widget from the lock screen.
