Shoot from the Hip.
Beforehand, think of your composition and camera settings, like focal length and exposure. Use a wide-angle lens for more depth of field and a wider view to crop later.
This is a fun technique to use when walking through crowded streets. Also, try holding the camera over your head, an especially good way to expand the foreground. These techniques come naturally with smart phones, where image taking is less serious.
