Before I became a DP, I worked as an editor for several years, and as an editor, I often complained that the cameraman did not shoot any "cutaways" for me. And often one little cutaway could "save" the edit. So even if the director won't budge on his choice of shots, you can often shoot one extra closeup of something that will make you a hero in the editing room...and with the director. Get a fast closeup of that gun on the floor, the broken vase, or some other detail that might be otherwise overlooked. If the director is busy working with the actors, he may not even know that you took the shot until he gets into the editing room.
