Aspect ratio affects everything we do as photographers, from creating images in-camera to making prints and posting photos online. Here are three videos I made to help you navigate aspect ratio and keep your creative vision intact from camera to the final product.
Intro to Aspect Ratio
The first video is an introduction to aspect ratio and addresses the different types of cameras and what aspect ratios they use and what that means for you, the photographer.
How Aspect Ratio Affects Prints
The second video discusses how aspect ratio is connected to print sizes and how that’s affected by your camera’s ratio.
Aspect Ratio on Social Media
The third video is about how aspect ratio is connected to social media. It’s not related to any normal camera aspect ratio, so this video will parse how to get keep the integrity of your photos as much as possible when posting on social sites.
