Don’t Lose Your Head When You Crop in Photoshop

Have you ever tried cropping in Photoshop to find out that if you crop to an 8×10 you lose your head? Or the head of the person who was photographed?  Why does this happen and what can you do about both in camera and in Photoshop? This video will help explain why this cropping ratio sometimes makes you “lose your head” and how to fix this now and in the future.

    This was great. Now all I have to do is remember that when photographing and switching from vertical to horizontal. So many things to think about…

    Thank you so much for this tutorial – and well actually all of your information! I feel like I have learned so much from you. I have the Canon xti and I’m always having crop issues. I’m wondering, is it easier to remember your in camera crop with a full frame camera? What you see is what you get vs I’m never sure what exactly my photos will look like until I get into photoshop?
