I'm bummed to leave such a neat blog but my life has been getting busier and busier ever since we adopted our little one and I decided that it's time to let a few things go, these posts being one of them.

You don't want to amputate your subject. Try to compose correctly when you're taking the picture but, if you forget and you amputate the bottom half of your subject's legs or arms, just adjust it in Photoshop. No worries.
