They're cropping their pictures to zoom in on the subject's face. I find it annoying.

It would be different if the photos were of a decent quality, but why would anyone want to zoom in from an already grainy pic? lol

The pictures on the website remind me of someone being given a new jacket they love so much they wear it when it's really too warm to do so.

Only in this case it looks like he got Photoshop. And can only crop and resize. Someone needs to find him a "Photoshop for Dummies" book quick.
