Today’s before and after photo shows how to crop to get the image you want. Two years ago I entered a photo contest held by Solo Cups. My dad suggested I include our dog in a photo, so I made party hats for Muffin and one of my daughters who particularly dotes on her. My youngest daughter stood to the side pouting since she wasn’t included.

Although I took several photos and my little gal moved aside, this first shot was my favorite. The cropped version won 1st runner up and $1,000 in the contest!

The Edits:

  1. Crop.

Yep—that’s it! Now I shoot in RAW, but two years ago I shot JPGs and set my camera to shoot Vivid, so the crop was my only edit.
