Saying that you want to get it right, compositionally, in camera, in my view, means you've never worked in situation where there is an art director or other supervisor with "their" view.

You are right, I never worked this way.

dmward wrote in post #18124709 (external link)
When I started doing commercial photographer I had cameras that had 2:3, 2:2, 4:5 and 5:7 formats.

The "crop" of camera is an arbitrary and meaningless constraint. There are times I've shot something where I knew that I had to do a three or four image composite to get the panoramic image I wanted. Other times shooting with 2:3 that I knew I would be cropping to 2:2.

And that's the point, as you know what the final format is, you can work according to that. In my case it's nearly always 3:2, the same as my camera.

I have photographs published in books and magazines worldwide, but is with a different type of photography, stock photography. There are some requisites, as are the final quality and a minimum resolution for example, but there is none about the format. And of course there are not art directors or supervisors.

dmward wrote in post #18124709 (external link)
With film, art directors generally specified film size based on the size they new the image would be used in print. Then cropping of the image was indicated in a layout based on page size, aspect ration and how the image would be used in the ad or editorial. There was never a view that the camera aspect ratio had any meaning related to the image.

I do know that there is a school of thought that wants to follow the HCB street photography approach of in camera framing. In my view that's a restraint that is more meaningless than meaningful.

Maybe it is, but for me, leave more space in each photo can be translated as more work for me, because I will be forced to crop every photo.

Juan

I like it, it has those soft old film tones and a nice spontaneous pose.

^^ Nice though I don't like the hot spot on her nose but any reason to go 1/500 and ISO400? Also I prefer to use longer pole to make it much easier for my assistant.

Thanks for the video.

Edited:- Watched the video, nice. Still don't get why would I need HSS. Regarding hot spot, was your flash on wide angle setting? When I used to use hot shoe flashes I preferred that they would face back and use the bounce, like from softliter.

Thanks! Good feedback about her nose. I used a high shutter because my hands weren't so steady at the moment. I have shaky hands that act up every now and then. That day I just kept moving too much when pressing down the shutter. Later for the last few photos in the video I was fine enough to go slower. My hands are weird, lol.

I am same way. That is why I kept wishing that Canon would someday add IS to 135L. But they never did.
