This is How You Should Crop a Portrait


If you’re looking to get into portraiture then you’ll learn very quickly that sometimes a photo should be cropped in order to make it better. It’s a skill that many photo editors learn quickly. Digital Camera World just released this awesome infographic on how to crop a portrait. It covers a basic fundamental that I was taught in photo school: Don’t crop at a joint–ever! always crop a little bit above or below it.

Save this infographic for when you’re editing: print it out and put it on your wall next to your monitor–it will provide a very quick, easy and visual guide for you when editing.
