::macro galore!
decided to post some of my macro shots of bugs! ha, den found tat all of them can be cropped to the paranoma ratio of 2:1..

in this case i had not planned for the shots to be cropped in this way but i think that in my doin so, i have opened my eyes to more croppin possibilities when i actually frame my shots in the field..

in a way this is not to be encouraged but i see benefits from this type of pp work.. maybe as i improve (hopefully!), i can see exactly wat i want and frame it tat way.. meanwhile, i enjoy the pp process, ha, like wat Ansel Adams the Great said: "The negative (RAW) is the musical score, the printing (PP) the performance." i really do think we make photos really then take photos, and i hold true to the need to pp.. not in any way to create more impressive photos to boost the photographer's ego but to obtain wat we see naturally.. this is because in the camera's choice to preserve as much detail as possible, it does not reproduce wat our eyes can perceive..
