Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying a freeform crop, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
In this project, we'll be working on this photograph of professional baseball…player Ryan Spilborghs.…Ryan is quite a player.…He plays for the Colorado Rockies, and here you can see, he just has this…intense expression.…I asked him to take some chalk and clap the chalk, and kind of give me this…intense look here, and I like that.…One of the things that I want to do is I want to try to add to that.…I want to try to bring that out in this image, because this guy is a great…player, as I mentioned.…He has a lot of intensity.…I mean the guy has hit a grand slam, for goodness sake.…So he is at the top of his game, right?…Well, if I zoom out, one of things that I notice is I don't have very good composition.…
I didn't get close enough.…We have too much space above and below.…So we need to crop.…So let's zoom back in, grab our Crop tool, and just do a freeform crop.…Here, we are going to change the overall composition, and the aspect ratio…and everything, but I want to do that to try to create an image which has more intensity.…
