Thought for the day: Quick Thought on Cropping

I generally think that photos should be cropped to match the scene. If you have an image that is best as a panorama then make it a pano.  If the subject is a natural square make it square.

More recently I am moving towards still doing the above but if the photo is naturally close one of the standard aspect rations (1:1 square, 4×5, 11×16, 9×16, etc.) then I may go with the expected standard aspect ratio rather than exactly what the picture might be. Unless I want to make the viewer uneasy…

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
