I have heard a complaint about my taking pictures diagonally from the man in the crazy getup seen below. Now I do this sort of thing on purpose because it lets me fit more into the rectangular frame even though it gives some photos a blair witch project sort of unprofessional effect (this one in particular is blair-witch-like).
See, I am fully capable of taking normal pictures (these are from the Getty Museum, LA CA).
There actually was an earthquake when I was taking this one (hard to hold still).
Just kidding, when taking pictures the way I like to you get about sqrt(2) times extra room. Had I taken the above picture normally you wouldnt have seen the detail of the road in the close foreground or the deepness of the sky near the top edge.
It especially helps taking closeups of tall buildings like this one.
