One of my favorite scrapbooking techniques is silhouetting. While there are exceptions to every rule, this is one I usually recommend croppers follow. Unless you are doing a sequencing of events where the photographer has moved in closer as each shot was taken, silhouettes look best on a page if they are of subjects taken from the same distance. Silhouetting the close-up of a head and placing it beside a silhouetted full length body will, nine times out of ten, look odd.
