Good Crop Bad Crop – How to Crop Portraits A Post By: Gina Milicia

This article teaches you the correct ways to crop an image.

First Tip - Crop the main focus of the image. When doing this it blurs out the background and gives viewers an idea of what the picture is all about.

Second Tip - Crop the image so it flatter the models body. For example is their body bends at a certain angle don't crop it. Also when cropping out legs be sure to always crop at mid-thigh rather than at the knee.

Third Tip - Avoid cropping out the models chin and keep their eyes in the top third of the frame. Always crop out things that make the image look messy like hands, legs, extra hair, etc.
