April 5th, 2020    (One of many tech tools)   The Fibonacci (number) series, as sometimes used in art forms and
in helping to create more interesting photographic compositions…

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…     A series of numbers in which each number (Fibonacci number) is the sum of the two preceding numbers.



(Adobe) Photoshop CC & Lightroom CC both feature several rotating Fibonacci cropping options for photographers.
Click the link below to see 3 ways to better crop your photos for some added interest.

Fibonacci (naturally observed and applied applications) as seen in seashells, galaxies, art, and photography.



Tech related photog assist - check out the 3 tutorials…

Lesson over, think about it, search the internet, magazines, and your photos for an actual or a possible Fibonacci or other crop.





Click the pic below to compare a possible improvement in the composition, (a background flag was also removed)…

Above are 2 older photo recropped using a (Lightroom CC or Photoshop CC) Fibonacci grid line as an example.   The spiral shape can also be
(somewhat) eyeballed when taking a photo, but better applied in a post-edit crop using a spiral shaped, overlay tool.

Villamoura, surprisingly affordable, (but where your Humvee and yacht may be same-named & colour coordinated),
it seemed & felt somewhat out of place imo, but worth a quick visit…
