This photo was shot too tight. When an 8x10 is made from it, the man and woman's feet will get cut off.

 


With ViewfinderMasks™ in the view finder, composing the shot is quick and precise. In this instance, the photographer would know that the camera should pan to the right for better centering. (Lines are enhanced for demonstrative purposes.)

In this example, the photographer overcompensated for the correct 8x10 format that would be necessary later at the lab and, as a result, the subject will need to be enlarged to fill the final portrait. Image quality will be sacrificed.

Here, ViewfinderMasks™ indicate exactly what the final portrait will look like -- before pressing the shutter release! (Lines are enhanced for demonstrative purposes.)
