As you read this, the Cropist (that’s me) will be at the Presentation Summit teaching those presentation professionals all I know about digital imaging. Of course, crops will be performed! Did you really think otherwise?
Here’s a shot from a couple of years back. Julie Terberg is presenting to a packed ballroom. It doesn’t look as cavernous as it really was…
That’s because of the crop! It is amazing what a little panoramic crop does to such a huge space. It looks like Julie’s audience is larger now! Oh, and I think there is a man in the back with his hand up too. Hard to see him in that uncropped vision.
The simplest technique you can use to improve focus to your image is the crop. I consider it the go-to tool in your arsenal.
