girl reflecting crop

Sydney April 2013 (2 images)

I’m not sure why but something I don’t commonly do is crop to a different aspect from that which the photograph was taken in. I guess it is something that I should at least consider a bit more. It does have an effect upon the dynamics of the photo. The original photo aspect…

  1. I don’t crop my images very often, either. In my case it goes back to a photography class I took in college where we were required to print everything full frame; funny that’s what stayed with me all these years! But these two versions of the same shot make a good case that it IS OK to crop….

    • Thank you. I guess it is all about the perspective.

      In a similar vein, I read an article a while ago that discussed the ability to get 3 or 4 different quality photos out of just one photo from a camera like the Nikon D800. Its a by-product of the chase for megapixels.

    • I guess most people compose to fit the frame. There’s a lot of options for photographers now. Just have to remember to use them. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

  2. I know nothing about photography so a lay person speaking here. I like the cropped better and found the original distracting esp the man in white long sleeves. 😉

  3. You’re right, the way you’ve refrained from cropping must have taught you good composition skills – I haven’t done that. But, that being said, I too prefer the cropped version! 🙂

    • I certainly prefer the cropped version as well. But the full frame gives me a bit of pride as it was an example of hitting a narrow zone of manual focus (whilst walking).
