Where Do You Cut In?

Just like with big game, where to crop into an aircraft is a very common question. Just like big game, there is no guide where to crop on an aircraft. My usual response to the question, “Where to crop on big game” is so it doesn’t feel awkward or look like a dead animal nailed to a wall. That response doesn’t work for aircraft though. So what is the answer? I don’t know if there is a correct answer, this is just what I think about in my mind when cropping into an aircraft. I look for the symmetry of the lines first of all. Unlike big game, an aircraft basically is the same shape, length, and design on the left side and it is on the right (yes there are some exceptions). This symmetry permits you to cut into one-half as long as you keep a symmetry in the remaining lines. Whether you show both sides like in the top frame or a section like in the bottom...

Move the Eye Thru the Frame

There are many ways to give our one-dimensional landscape photos visual depth. One quick and easy of doing it is by including the sun. Just knowing this though isn’t your salvation because including the sun has its own ying and yang. The first thing to think about is the sun will be the brightest element in the frame. The eye will go to it with missile speed and lock onto it. Now that can be good, that could be bad. The difference between the two is the visual path you create to and from the sun in your frame. This is the hard part because the power of the sun is great but not so great it can’t be used in your favor. That’s the challenge and at the same time how you bring visual depth to your photo. There are two examples here of that happening but in two totally different ways and there are much more, probably infinite the possibilities. Here’s what you gotta watch out for...
