Cropping your photos isn’t always super intuitive. With new crops available on Instagram, it’s time we looked into when and how to crop perfectly
This article by Vladimir Gendelman goes through 15 easy-to-remember cropping tips. He includes great beginner advice on the rule of thirds as well as stuff you might not have thought about.
- Don’t crop people at the joints – This makes the viewer uncomfortable, so unless you’re going for that feel, avoid it.
- Allow breathing room – If your subject is staring off in the distance, give them some space to stare into. Otherwise you’ll leave your viewers feeling a bit claustrophobic.
- Keep the hair – Don’t crop too close to the hairline, you want to leave enough hair in the photo so the viewer can easily visualize the rest.

We’re all stoked about the new 6s camera, but have you taken a minute to appreciate just how far the iPhone has come, camera-wise?
Well Lisa Bettany has taken her appreciation to a visual level with an actual side-by-side comparison. Check out her full article here.
We love seeing the evolution of clarity and contrast across the generations. What really blew us away though, was the significantly improved white-balance. For instance, clarity took a huge step forward on the 3Gs, but white-balance went haywire. Things cooled down with the iPhone 4, and everything improved, step-by-step, up to the impeccable iPhone 6s.
Thanks to Lisa, we now have a real appreciation for how lucky we are to live in the future.
