P52.2: FRAMED | week 18

February 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It's week 18 of project Photo 52.2: Framed! We are continuing our focus on Perspective by looking at alternate aspect ratios and how they can impact the image. The aspect ratio of an image is the relationship between its height and width - effectively defining how square or rectangular the image is. Most DSLR cameras use an aspect ratio of 3:2 or more commonly known as 6:4. By changing the aspect ratio we can use the height and width of the image to strengthen the composition, play with the perspective or create a more balanced image. This week are using aspect ratios that are more commonly found on medium and large format cameras and I chose to use 5:4 for my crops below.
