Making it more interesting
Taking photos of elevators to show others what the elevator looks like for posterity purposes is different than taking photos that attempt to be creative or perhaps more interesting to look at. It makes taking pictures more fun but it doesn't always result in something that's well-focused or picture-ready. I took this photo of a train that was going by the Kinley elevator thinking that at a slow exposure it would blur the train but show the elevator in the background as the steady object. I forgot that at the slower exposure I would have to hold the camera perfectly steady. I liked the picture however, and with the help of Photoshop I've turned it into an "artsy shot".
