Some time ago, I've been told by an alleged pro photog that real photogs don't crop, or at least only do minor angle correction. I am wondering if this is true, or it is an old-school fairy tale from the analog age that falls into the category "real photogs don't use auto iso and only shoot in full m".
I shoot a lot from a canoe or a kayak and it can be a challenge to keep the camera level as you are being bounced around by waves.... straightening horizons is very necessary for me.
In bird photography, very often only the center part of the image is on the target.... cropping becomes very important..
Agree. For these situations, it is hard to frame the picture correctly. It is wise to leave room for cropping.
However, We should avoid cropping when ever it is possible to avoid wasting of pixels. Why buy a high mp camera and use only half of them??? Do we want to turn a 5D into a 40D??
