On my way back to the car from Kensington Market’s Pedestrian Sunday I came across a PETA protest. Their beef this time was the use of fir, which they were trying to bring awareness to. I support this cause but I don’t support annoying car drivers in Toronto’s downtown core. Alienating people who likely support your cause is no way to draw attention to it, in my view.
Anyway, I like how this photo turned out.
About the Crop: I cropped it 16 x 9 for a change. My usual rule is if I do crop the photo in post, my crops have to maintain the original aspect ratio of 3 x 2, or 4 x 3, or 1 x 1. I very rarely use a custom crop and if I do I always try not to set it to some random ratio. Why, you might be wondering? If you limited yourself to only two or three predetermined crop ratios, it makes you think about the composition more when framing your shot. In short, it makes things a little more challenging. Sort of like shooting with prime lenses rather than zooms. Nowadays I enjoy making things a little tougher for me when it comes to my photography.
Hope you like the shot.
