| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Non dog face crops...how to crop and exposure advice? |
Well, basic question, last of my dog questions, I promise...thought about not making another. Anyway, the general consensus in my other thread was to not chop the head...I partly decided to do it because I was shooting through a glass door, and he had pressed his runny nose all over it making a mess. Zoomed in I could find ways to avoid the obstruction...but had a really hard time getting a good clear sharp image through the door.
Anyway, I have 2 mostly full body images that are fairly well focused, but I have a really hard time figuring out how to crop it (currently doing some reading on framing rules and techniques) and am not sure about the exposure. At the moment I am just using the software that came with the camera, have it show clipped highlights and clipped shadows, adjust just enough to try to eliminate as much of that as possible (when I feel like they deter from the image anyway, such as on the dogs nose ) and then leave it, as I dont want to do much PP...since I dont know what I am doing.
If you have another tip for how to do simple exposure adjustments, while I read, learn more and practice to add more variety, let me know! Also, if you have any framing suggestions on these, let me know that too! (I will actually probably just submit my personal favorite from my other thread, this is mostly for learning, unless I find out there is some hidden image not yet seen )
