2. The Frame - Project 15 (II), Cropping

(viewed 652 times)

6. Anja, posing with (is it Trinny or Susannah?) at Covent Garden, was a quick shot before she flitted off to her next assignment. Consequently it's all badly composed and twisted (well, the camera's being held straight, the two ladies are hanging over to one side for some reason) a closer-in crop produces a much better portrait, more personal, and puts the two subjects upright in the frame (we'll pretend the door in the background belongs on the leaning tower of Pisa).

7. The "Travelling Munkeh" needs to show that he's in London, (or at least, England) the viewer doesn't need to see my thumb in the bottom of the picture and it all needs straightening out somewhat. Cropping out superfluous clutter makes for a more consise image.

8. The architecture of the British Museum in London fascinates me. In the original image there were one or two distracting items at the edges of the shot: top left corner, bottom edge and bottom right corner. These have all been cropped out to give a much "cleaner" final image.

9. The punter on the Cam, just outside King's College, could just as well be in Oxford, once the context has been cropped out.
