We had a nice discussion in the forum about how to crop. What shall determine the crop, the output paper format or the content of the image?
The two main aspect ratios used in digital cameras are 2:3 and 3:4. This has technical reasons – not artistic considerations. Then there is a flood of different formats for papers, from ancient to the modern A-series. The big question: How do you fit your camera image onto the paper?
I show two ways of getting it right. One is to leave a strip of paper white and cut it off later. Or you put the image into the centre of the paper and leave a nice white border around it. For both a bit of math is needed.
In the video I mention a script for getting images straight – a rotation tool on steroids. You find it at Ray Adagio’s Script Manufacture.
What happens in the camera when you change the ISO? This is my topic for the tech part of the show.
