Default Re: cropped heads

parr loves using the flash! I think he's probably dissappointed if when he uses the flash you can't tell. I think it adds to the kitchness of some of his shots. He uses it as a tool, his photos do have a very tourist-snap-from-the-50s feel to them some times.

Cutting heads? It does look good to do this, well on 800 pixel photo, but i wonder how good it will look in a gallery when the image is 1 meter wide? I recently saw an exhibition by mary ellen mark and she had lots of portraits, and she had left space around them and it worked really well.

I guess the other arguement against cropping the head in the original, is that you can always crop later.
