This relates to something I have seen from a pro elsewhere on the net, and wouldn't be fair to link. To cut to the chase I really really don't like what seems like one of the current fads (sorry style), very tight cropping. In particular it's those cases where there is no obvious reason to crop out the subjects hair or half their legs but it is done anyway. Anyway's how do you feel about this style? or any of the other fashions? This reminds me as well of one of the most ludicrous comments I have ever read on a forum, again not posted here but elsewhere on a popular forum. The commentator criticised this poor guys images for not having the "pro look", further clarification revealed that what he actually meant was that the photographer hadn't followed a fad such as overly tight cropping, grainy B&W etc. etc. throughout a set of which I thought were perfectly decent shots. I hope this hasn't come across as a rant but I would really like to here some opinions in this area from you guys. In particular the pros that have lived through many fads.
