What's your best photo tip?
Also, I tend to like to layer my shots, with interest in the foreground (i.e. a flower), w/ something in the middle, and then the background. But maybe that's just me. And it's not always the way to go; depends on what you want to accomplish.
And as someone else said earlier, creative, unexpected angles -- not just straight on; perhaps squat down and look up at the subject.

Centerpiece Photography for Every Room
After reading all about these odd little cameras and their ranks of devoted enthusiasts, I must commend you!
The bicycle is particularly useful if you spot a person or some other moving object that you want to shoot on film. The bike allows you to move ahead and get a better angle.
For instance only take photos at or around sunrise and sunset and you will have striking photos. But they will look like everyone else's photos who read that same rule. They'll also come out looking jaundiced and yellow but most people seem to like that
Experimentation is the key to great photography. The day a photographer stops experimenting is the day he puts down his camera and becomes a writer.
sorry in advance if i repeat anyone's, but this is what i've learned:
* if using a digital camera and the lighting is not quite right, focus first on something that has better lighting, then holding the button, go back and frame what you want to focus on and take the picture. this works well towards the end of the day when theres seemingly not enough light.
* i agree that taking multiple shots of the same thing is a great idea! one of them will be the perfect (if not close).
* with a digital camera, avoid zooming in too much for the shot - it takes away from the quality of the picture. you can always crop it later.
* people in their natural moment is best, but yes, aksing to photograph is not always fun. my experience with indigenous people is mostly getting 'no.' however, in india, the friendlier people love getting their photos taken, even entire families!
* notice the small and subtle details in your surroundings...some of them can be amazing shots!
good tip: capture moments, not history
WTF? tip: for your next trip, consider leaving the camera at home an take a sketch pad instead.
surely SURELY that was a joke...
It is a certainty that a photo op will be missed if you are sans cam when op presents itself.
