You guys never heard of cropping?

Cropping is evil, Oscar. The only people who crop are people who can't frame a picture properly when they shoot.

Yes. Like Robert Frank.

Actually I have a longer long list of photographers I respect who do crop. Personally I prefer not to but I wouldn’t knock those that do.

I am not taking it personally.  I crop very seldom. Hardly ever. Sometimes I give it a go because it worked for greats like Frank and Arnold Newman. They make it work. When I do it it seems contrived

Well, when you gotta crop you've gotta crop. That's all there is to it.

It's often a case of being stuck with the wrong camera format at the time of taking the shot. 135 format is notoriously difficult to use without cropping in the vertical position, especially with headshots. Too thin for comfort, yet surprisingly pleasing for horizontals, of people, too.

How is it that you happen to know all about this syndrome, Ivo?

Human interest, Russ.
