Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge – Week 15, Cropping

Cropping is this week’s focus from Cee for CCYC, I agree with Cee, that it is an essential part of editing for most (if not all photos) and can be a powerful tool all in itself.

I may play around with a lot of digital art, but my images pretty much always start out as digital photos, and the crop tool is a vital part of getting things just as you want them.

Sometimes it’s just a subtle crop, to improve the composition, rule of thirds etc. or to remove a shadow or distracting area from a shot.

Sometimes it’s to zoom in on something special

Or to give a different perspective

But more often than not it’s to get rid of something that ruins a perfectly great photo

Til next time, happy snapping………..
