I’ve always trimmed some of the larger leaves off mine when they’re putting the ripening fruit in the shade. Not too many though, the plant does need some😁
I tend to cut all stems below the first fruit truss back to 2 leaves sometimes removing the lowest ones altogether purely for ease of watering. Then anything overhanging the fruits. Works for me but some do it differently.
I don’t remove larger leaves as heat is more important for ripening tomatoes than light. Direct sun can cause sunscald.
There are people in both camps, to cut or not. My view is that if leaves are in the way or damaged by watering then they are cut. I never leave leaves to touch the ground it is asking for trouble. Higher up if the fruit can't see the light then they will be slower to ripen, so leaves hanging over fruit go. It has never caused me to loose quantity of fruit or damaged plants and I had 200 from 12 plants last year .😁
