Composition Rule #9


Cropping Is rule #9. Simply put this means taking out as much of the stuff in the image you don't want the view to see, so more of the image focuses on the subject. In this shot I have zoomed in on a single vine of Ivey so as to make it the main subject. If I was to pull back you would see that there are many many more vines running along side this one. In the case of cropping, less is more! 


Next month is the final composition post #10! Do you have any questions that I should go over? Matrix vs center weight metering, gear, style, let me know what your question are so we can all learn something new together.


Hiking Tip


Here is a great outdoor, hiking, camping, life tip! Always keep a few of these lint rollers in you vehicle. After a hike in the great outdoors, and before you get back inside your vehicle take a second to lint roll all of your clothing thoroughly. What you find might surprise you! 

Ticks and Chiggers,  these little pests can cause all sorts of problems for you, your family, and your pets. Removing them ASAP is so important. I have taken every precaution before a hike to keep these bugs off of me but at the end of the day I always seem to find a few on my clothing. The last thing I want to do is bring them into my vehicle, and risk bringing them home. 

This lint roller has kept hundreds of ticks from getting to my skin, my car, my home, my dogs, and my family.  

Get Out There!!
