Crop Rotation - Odd Crops and Going Dutch
The standard head in the middle of the frame is OK, but if you want add a bit more dynamic to your image consider shifting the crop and or rotation of the image for a more striking effect.
A tight edge imbalances the image, which adds a tension to the picture and although there is a lot of negative space the eye is always drawn back to the face.
Rotated so the face looks across the negative space adds mystery and the diagonal angle adds impact.
Or rotate the other way, with either eyes to camera or down. Again the Dutch tilt and negative space adds a tension to the image.
In these days of computer processing we don't get our old "L" crop frames out anymore, so we often miss those tilt and crop opportunities. So time to get radical and rotate and crop.
