Cropping and framing

I would like to share with you my method for correctly cropping and framing any kind of photo by using a "home-made" proportional grid.

The problem comes from Lightroom : even if you can change the different styles of grids for framing (grid, diagonals, thirds, etc), you can't access them all at the same time.

That's why I have created a grid in colours, composed of all the necessary lines, which can be simply copied/pasted in Photoshop, in order to place the photo in the background with the exact pixel you want.

There are below several examples, each in 4 steps, from original picture to the final result, to see what I am talking about.

The manual in PDF format that explains the different steps is available by sending me an e-mail at : echatelain36@yahoo.com

I hope you find it interesting.  Don't hesitate to leave a comment, or better still, share your own method with others.

Kind regards.

Eric
