Photo Cropping Techniques
It's almost impossible to take a bad photo at Gamble; the gardens and house provide a variety of picture perfect subjects and backgrounds. But sometimes, after viewing the photos you've taken, you realize they aren't as perfect as you had envisioned. Fortunately, there are a multitude of techniques that photographers use to enhance their photos after the photos have been taken. The process of transforming photos from what was captured on camera is known as post-processing. Below, professional photographer Nadine Priestley shares an easy way to make your photos pop via cropping:
Have you ever wondered why your images may not appear as strong as you remember they were when you made them? Sometimes, all you need is to properly crop the image. Take a look at the images below. They were taken as 4x6 images; later, I cropped them into squares.
Notice how nicely they look together. It's partly because the essence of the image is captured without distraction of other elements in the image. They also look more united cropped together as squares. One overlooked element is more subtle. The lighting was very similar as they were taken within moments of one another, plus they each featured something with an orange hue.
