IGPOTY

Deadline 1st October


Well I have chosen some images for the square crop competition but bit unsure which 4 (if any) I should enter. Here are my possibilities.

About Square Crop

Judges will be looking for beautiful botanical subjects perfectly suited to a square crop. Use inspiration from the other categories as a guide to the subject matter to create a stunning crop image. As always IGPOTY is looking for plant life to be visible within your capture.

Insights

Making full use of the frame is the key to success as well as utilising the right subject elements with style and clarity to form an impactful cropped photo.  

As Tyrone McGlinchey, Managing Director of International Garden Photographer of the Year says:

“The art of the crop can make or break an image and a square crop really forces us to consider the place of every element and its contribution to the composition. This photo project then is all about balance, critical ability and subject understanding.”

Wider benefits

The photo projects offer an opportunity to focus on specific skills and effective crop/composition is a significant skill to master, particularly within the genre of garden photography. Communicating the beauty of plants within a box can be difficult, but a cropped image can help focus the mind on specific details or aspects of a larger scene.
