Some suggestions include:
* Take unconventional shots, such as holding the phone above your head, shooting around corners and interesting angles.
* Photograph images of celebrities in interesting situations, such as a kiss or “a mouth full of pie.”
* “Become a bounty hunter” to be on the lookout for specific subjects
* Take images that aren’t covered by professional photographers, such as images in the stands during sporting events, during small demonstrations of “a witty banner or a painted face” or of fans around a stage door during or after a concert.
Here’s one I especially like: “If you’re not a professional photographer, take your camera phone to work and take regular snaps behind the scenes. Again, these images are unlikely to end up on a gallery wall, but they will bring in potential customers and give you product sales.”
Among the many problems with the way cellular operators run their camera phone businesses, the lack of virtually any information on the corporate ramifications of wireless imaging is one of their worst mistakes. Most of the operators — and handset vendors — are clueless about the value of promoting enterprise applications and, instead, concentrating almost exclusively on consumer applications with nary a nod to business uses.
