Billion Monkey tips

I have been working on my tips for Billion Monkeys piece. However, this contains many of the things I was going to say, and I disagree with hardly any of it. It's presented as tips for people using portable phone cameras, but all the same principles apply to cheap digital cameras without phones.

I got to this via this having started, inevitably, from here.

"Whatever did we do before digital cameras?"

"Probably only took sensible photos."

Precisely. Who wants a world containing only sensible photos? Where's the fun in that?

The cartoonist in question adds to the list of recommendations linked to above that you try hanging from the ceiling. Good idea. But best not while wearing a tie.
