Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Aspect ratio basics, part of Advanced Photography: Diptychs, Triptychs, and Aspect Ratios.
- [Instructor] To begin, it's essential…that we understand what aspect ratios are,…how they relate to the cameras that we're using…and how we follow up and print from these ratios.…A lot of times when you purchase a camera…or maybe you get your first DSLR…or you're using a smartphone,…a point and shoot, you don't really think…about what is the aspect ratio of this camera?…It's not something commonly asked…but it's so incredibly important,…so I want to start by taking a look…at some popular camera options…and what aspect ratios they are…and what exactly does that mean?…So, I've got the Sony A7R2 is has become very popular…for landscape photographers…and the aspect ratio is a 3:2.…
Now, that relates to the size of the sensor.…The sensor is a 35 millimeter sensor…and it measures a three by two, okay?…And what that means is when you take an image…and you process it,…and if you don't do any cropping,…that can be printed on any three by two format,…for example, it could be made into a four by six…or a 12 by 18 or a 20 by 30, okay?…
