Re: How often and how much do you crop?

When I talk about "getting it right in camera" I am talking primarily about exposure. Light is the thing I am most interested in at the  actual moment. If I get the subject in frame and mostly where I want it to be, that's good enough on the framing front.

I work out my compositions by cropping. Digital lets me take my time and experiment, often creating several "finished" images out of the same exposure. Squares are my particular passion. Sometimes I play around with setting my cameras to shoot squares, but mostly I use the sensor's native format to gather the maximum amount of data and then crop.
