which has some good tips for taking camera phone shots. Here are the top tips:

  • Well lit subjects
  • Get Close
  • Keep it Still
  • Edit images later
  • Don't Throw Away 'mistakes'
  • Avoid Using the Digital Zoom
  • Experiment with White Balance
  • Take loads of Shots and Experiment
  • Follow Rules of Composition and then Break them
  • Keep Your Lens Clean
  • Observe Camera Phone Etiquette
  • Rename your Images
  • User the highest resolution possible on your camera phone
