Last week, Steve Huff Photo Blog ran an article we wrote and some of Wendy’s images with the article. There were a lot of positive and great comments (thank you readers) but there was a big discussion over whether its OK or proper to cut off people’s heads in an image. And it got us thinking. When does it work and when is it weird?
We would LOVE to hear your comments on this one. What do you think about “creative” crops and head chopping? Constructive criticism is always good. We are all learning all the time and we do not claim to be experts by any means. We just know what we like, what do you guys think? Do you crop off heads? Or are you in the “give me head” crowd?
Here are some examples of creative crops that our readers sent in. Tell us where and when it works and why.[blogshow id=b80e player=0 autoplay=0 toolbar=1]
In looking through these images – what Amy from a beautiful life photo said just resinates with me. Each one of these images makes me feel as if I was there…even though I don’t know these people personally…I can FEEL their personality and how they were feeling at the exact moment in time. And THIS is why they are interesting, foreheads or not.
oh! and Thank you to all our talented contributors – here are the links – in order.
