Eight By Ten (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

There are standard dimensions for photos (e.g. 8 by 10) and then there are standard dimensions for frames (e.g. 8.5 by 11), for publications it depends. Then there is shooting in portrait mode – camera vertical – (which magazines and books sometimes prefer) or landscape mode – camera horizontal – (which in a publication may mean a two page spread). Some professionals shoot in Raw and JPEG and both portrait and landscape. Now the amateur is less likely to care about these nuances, unless they want to frame their photo. More importantly these decisions on dimensions and quality have an impact on the photograph, in first case because of the overall perception of the photo and in the second, the degree to which the photo can be edited. When it comes to RAW or JPEG I shoot RAW and I shoot in the mode that captures the subject as I see it. Dimensions concern me because they are important for this blog and for my online shop (see link above).
