I ♥ Faces - Creative Crop
This weeks's theme at I Heart Faces is creative cropping, either in-camera or using an editing program. When I saw the theme, this photo of Ethan sledding immediately came to mind. This is the shot, (Straight-Out-Of-Camera), as he was telling me all about how far he went on his last run. "Did you see me, Mom?!" I wish I had caught him looking at me, but while we were talking he kept looking at the end of the track he'd left in the snow.
When I previewed the shot outside, I remember thinking, "Darn, I cut off part of his head." But when I went inside and opened the file, I was pleased to find that his whole face was there, and I really liked the off-centered composition of the shot. (Of course, the word "composition" implies that I purposely shot off-center, but I'm owning it, even if it was just luck.) :)
So there you have it, my lucky, SOOC creative crop. Head on over to I ♥ Faces to see some amazing ways to crop a photo and add some pizazz. I learn so much there every week!
