Cropping (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

Cropping raises all kinds of questions, including should I crop? As cameras have an aspect ratio that will not fit most frames that alone makes cropping pretty much a standard. Macro Photographers crop almost all the time. There are “rules” for cropping (of thirds, golden triangle etc.). There is also cropping for drama, etc. Often excluding a piece of the whole makes little difference to our minds in grasping what a subject might be. There is even a school of photography where getting as close as you can without losing the ability  of your audience to understand the subject e.g. in portraits cropping close and focusing more on the face than the other parts of the head. Personally  I think experimenting with cropping never hurts.

  1. I agree With you on that Victor. Purists are focused on Straight-out-of-Camera photography (SooC). That’s a good thing, but the camera is not theh only tool we can use to make good art. Have a fruitful Sunday 🙂
