Exercise – Cropping

In this exercise, I have looked at the method of cropping for compositional considerations; and by using imaging software and a little imagination, pictures can not only be improved slightly; but sometimes salvaged by re-presenting it in another way. (See my last example.)

Before-2-resized
With this image the picture is not quite level and could be cropped a little tighter.

After-2-resized
Straightened and cropped.

Before-1
To improve this picture the subject could be turned to run more diagonal across the photo and cropped in to loose some of the empty space.

After-1-resized
Turned and cropped.

Before-3-resized
This picture of a swan was cropped in to much when it was photographed. However, a possible interesting arty/graphic image could be created by flipping the image with the help of imaging software then turned and cropped in.

After-3-resized
Flipped, turned and cropped.
