  14. Have a think about black and white, sepia or any of the other filters that your camera has.
  15. Use the photos in multiple places.
  16. Have a look at post processing.  Learn how to use a photo editing program.  Try Canva or even the Microsoft Word photo editor.
  17. Take multiple photos.  I am always adjusting settings, backgrounds and framing so that I can get the best possible image.
  18. Unleash your creativity!
  19. Take the damn photo!
