Cropping can save photos from a crooked horizon or unwanted subjects in the frame, but it can also be used to create new and interesting images. For this reason, it's closely connected to the photographic principle of composition. Join teacher and photographer Chris Orwig as he shows you how to refocus your eye and reorient your photos with cropping. Learn how to use the Photoshop, Lightroom, and Camera Raw suite of tools to straighten, remove distracting elements, fix distortion, and add creative effects.
Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer, author, and teacher. And in this course we're going to focus in on how we can crop and improve our photographs. We'll be looking at how we could use our Photoshop suite of tools. How we can crop and recompose using Adobe Camera Raw, Lightroom and Photoshop itself. You know, of course in order to get good at cropping, we need to learn some tools and techniques. But, we also have to keep in mind that whenever we crop an image, we're recomposing the frame. You know, cropping is closely connected to a core photographic principle, and that is composition.
So along the way, in addition to talking about the tools, we'll be talking about how we can clarify our vision. How we can improve our photographs by cropping and recomposing. So if you are ready to take a look at how you can improve your photographs by cropping and recomposing, well, lets begin.
