Many people here have touched on ideas about general photography discussions - framing, lighting, choosing interesting subjects instead of just another scenery/tourist site shot.

But that's all material for a general photography book. If you're looking to discuss photography specifically in the bike touring context, then you need bike specific discussions.

How to carry the equipment. At the low end, you can keep a P&S on your belt, or a consumer grade DSLR and maybe one extra lens in a bar bag. But if you're trying to bring 10 lenses for every purpose, how do you pack and protect them if your bike falls over. Advantages of a bar bag vs a rack bag or a pannier. How to arrange your gear so your camera and other equipment are quickly accessible.

Tripods that are easy to store on a bike and quick to remove. Maybe a discussion of actually turning your bike into a tripod by attaching a ball head and a kickstand.

Basically all the things that make photography from a bike platform different from a hiking or car-based platform.
