"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

Severe Cropping

We are always hearing or being preached to about “rules” in composition.
Well, I preach to “despise and break” those rules, but do it only after you have learned what rules you should despise and/or break!

Yes, some would argue about the “negative space” to the right of the main subject shown here, but sometimes that negative space can become a subject on its own. I have other images which show negative space more so as a subject on its own than this, and will post one of those later.

Severe cropping?
It is something that everyone needs to try, to practice, to help get yourself out of that “ho hum” photography that you may find yourself in!
Severe cropping may not work with every subject, but in many cases, it can enhance the subject you are shooting.
Just try it, and see what your creative mind and that tool in your hands can do for you!
