I had a shoot a week ago and we missed the sun set due do constraint of time. So, we decided to go indoors where my only option is a 7ft. ceiling in my basement.



After/Before

I also did a vertical crop.



I'm still learning how to frame images, so I shoot usually farthur off and crop in when needed. It's a hard thing to get used to. Once I hold the camera up to my face I sort of lose some sense of framing. I think I move a bit too quick. Always learning.

I usually frame my photos too close in the camera, and pay
for it when it comes time to mount it in a standard frame.

We must continue to learn from our mistakes. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Very nice end image. good work. I also use the same techniques and concerned about cropping the images right. Always gets me nervous as the options are many and just a couple that would be correct.

Exactly why I started to shoot farthur away lol! I have some handy information to post about framing in the camera. I will have to get my book and take some shots of the examples. It's on portraiture photography.

I just go in and add a border to the image before printing. No sense in wasting sensor data on stuff that will be behind a frame.

Key point to keep in mind

35 is 4x 6 paper is 8x10

Dude, you have a good Eye for the images, DONT CHEAT!!!!! your better than that. if you are using digital try this. Shoot a shot for a full length or head shot take note where the actuall cut off point on the viewscreen is for an 8x10 and put a piece of splicing tape around the viewscreen. on my 10d its about an 8th of inch on top and on bottom for an 8x10. at least until you get used to cropping. great image by the way. Just my 2 cents take it or leave it.

Thank you. That is a good idea for learning. (framing tape on the viewscreen) I really never thought of doing that.

for whatever it's worth, since i'm also a video cameraman and have been shooting vidcams for an awful long LONG time, i tend to automatically frame up in the camera when i'm shooting stills, i.e., i do most of my cropping in the camera as video doesn't, for the most part, afford the opportunity to recrop or reframe. sometimes, tho, this bites me on the butt as i wish i would have left a bit more room top and bottom and on both sides since photography affords the opportunity to precisely crop... and it becomes almost more important to do so since it's a static image rather than moving images. i'm often holding the camera to my eye and telling myself to loosen up a bit with the framing. (loosen up = go a bit wider)

As a short cut, take an 8x10 inch piece of paper and tape it to the wall. Frame it with your camera and then mark the views creen.
