Cropping

Cropping images helps to draw attention to the area of the photo that is most important. Ideally you would always have a perfect composition created on your negative, but in reality this is not always the case.

To crop off areas of an image you will need to enlarge the image in the enlarger and print only the area that you want to use. Watch the grain of the image it will become more pronounced with enlargement.
