Rule Of Thirds

Cropping Photos
While it’s great to crop the photo when you compose the shot, sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. Many times, after the fact, we realize that we should have framed the photo differently when we took it. Well, as you’d expect, Lightroom has a cropping feature that works great. One of my favorite things about it though is that it automatically puts a “Rule of Thirds” grid over your photo so you can really compose the crop area right – the first time. Check it out in this week’s video.
