Never thought about this; good thread though as it's these nuances that I love discussing. It's part of the "1% better" sort of mentality that adds up over time.

My profile pic has my bike showing on its kickstand side, which just seemed to naturally fit the standing position I wanted to take behind it. The bike goes low-to-high and I can rest my hands easily on the tank.

So like any guiding principles; there's context that needs to go with it as some other replies have mentioned.

I have never heard this or really given it much thought until reading this thread. Now that I think about it, I feel like my favorite bike pics are from the "non" kickstand side. I would agree it is related to angle and ultimately that could be solved with some creative photography but probably just easier to shoot the "right" side. :D
