Re: Crop - cut

Of course it depends on what type of people photography one does, but for me the notion of there being "rules" is kind of goofy. When I look at fashion magazine covers or work by truly great photographers like Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier, Richard Avedon, Ellen Von Unwerth, I could go on and on, I'm as likely to see broken "rules" --cropping or otherwise--as not.

And on these forums some of the most eye rolling input I see from people is concerning cropping. That is not to say that cropping choices aren't important; they are. But the idea of there being blanket "rules" is nonsensical in my opinion.

At the end of the day, if you take a photo of someone and if you like it and if it is your intention, than it's a success. "Rules" are the bane of creativity.
