Cropping and extending

This section is about cropping an image. In general practice setting the frame in camera (through the viewfinder) is good practice; making you pay attention at the time of taking the shot of the composition of the image (which can reduce post production time ). The course text goes on to suggest that cropping is a ‘design option’ a way of deferring design decisions or trying out new ways of looking at the image. But be aware that you are limited to the size of the original and size you wish to crop to.

Extending is the idea of overlapping images to create a single larger image, the opposite of cropping. I haven’t made any of this time of image on the course, however last year I had a go at a large panoramic that I created with a small compact camera and joined using Photoshop Elements.
