When I started printing at home, I made sure that when I shoot with printing in mind, I always make sure that there is plenty of extra outside the main subject. I may print 5X7 or 8X10 or 11X14, all the up to 17X whatever (Epson P800 w/roll option). Some of the stuff I shot before I started printing was cropped haphazardly....rookie mistake. It made printing some of my older stuff quite challenging.

It is a lot easier to crop now that I have an R5. Gotta' love the extra pixels!


That's something to keep in mind for stock photography as well. You don't know how much the client may want to crop, so for more flexibility, provide more room around the main subject so it may be cropped.
