Your 'Arty-Farty' pics

Post by kiwi »

The last few days I have seen a (for me at least) new term beginning to become popular. Some people have posted some shots they refer to as arty-farty. This type of picture is taken with a different thought than most 'normal' spotter pictures. Looking at other peoples pictures becomes boring when time progresses because the angles get overused. Shots are only interesting when the subject is interesting, the composition of the shot comes in second, maybe even further back for some. I want to encourage people to experiment with angles and compositions so we can bring back some variety in spotter pictures!

I'll kick off with a not so stunning example, but an example that shows a composition not very often used. This is definitely not a standard 'side-on, as long as the serial is readable' shot. When I took this shot I went for composition, not for collectors value.

Please do post a lot of your shots where composition was a high priority for you and let's make this a topic with a lot of variety!

Sorry for all the black and white pictures, I like it sometimes, but that's my opinion.
Hope you like them.
