Playing with different photography techniques is fun. I haven't done it in a long time since I took some photography classes, so I probably can't be much help with specific details. There are some great books out there on the topic, though.  Check your library or bookstore for Photo-Imaging: A Complete Guide to Alternative Processes by Jill Enfield, The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes by Christopher James, and Creative Photo Printmaking by Theresa Airey.

You could look into books like these or search online to find out how to try making multiple exposures (a lot of fun), making a pinhole camera, infrared photography (using special infrared film), Polaroid transfers, or even using "toy" cameras like the Holga. Other things you could try include making sunprints (made by placing objects on special sunprint/blueprint paper and exposing the paper in the sun) or making liquid emulsion prints. 

Hope this helps!

This may not be specifically a photography technique or following any method, but I have never had more enjoyable experiences than using my toy cameras. My father is a professional photographer, but unfortunately, his talent is not as evident in me -- but toy cameras (with multiple lenses/effects/types) give this great effect on the photographs. I currently use the Lomo Pop 9 which produces 9 images, all slightly different perspectives, in one exposure.  Because they are not always high quality cameras, the pictures sometimes end up with this grainy, vintage-y look. The Holga is especially great at this.

With the Pop9 it is a lot of fun to take pictures of random patterns and movements, because you don't really ever know how it will turn out in the end.

Sorry to wax poetic about Lomos! Even if you are looking for more professional techniques, the lomos are great fun. Check it out at www.lomography.com

i'm not so sure that this is a tecnique but.. i have a white wipeboard and so i take black objects and use a very bright flash and just click away. it creates a high contrast, and kinda looks cool. i don't know if that's what you were lookin for..but i hope i helped.
