you’re going to want to “pin” this : print sizing

Excuse me while I get a bit technical, but it’s that busy time of year and I know lots of you are going to be ordering photo prints for cards, gifts and just to decorate the walls in your home, so I wanted to give this bit of info on Print Sizing.

When you order prints of various sizes, most often some minor cropping is necessary.  That is because the standard sizes of prints vary. For instance, when I captured an image, the full frame of the image, straight out of my camera  is a 2:3 ratio.  If I want to print and display the full image, I have to maintain the sizing at a 2:3 ratio – so I would have to have a print that is 4×6, 6×9, 8×12, 16×24, 20×30, etc.  If I want it in any other size, some cropping will be involved. The images and proofs I provide my clients are a 5:7 ratio – as I feel this crop gives you the most flexibility when having to adjust to other sizes. In other words, the 5×7 crop can usually have some minor cropping to 4×6 or 8×10, without effecting the image composition, in my experience.  I also crop your images trying to allow you space to order in other sizes.

 

For this reason, I suggest you not buy frames for your images until after you see the proofs.  This can help you decide what size works best for what image.

And because sometimes an image says it better than words, here is a chart to explain:

 


location & clothing & sam senior 2012

Two important considerations in any photo shoot – the location  and the colors of your clothing.

For seniors,we try to pinpoint what kind of  “look”  is more your personality.  But actually, the same would be true for any kind of sessions – senior or family.

What kind of “feel” do you want the images to have? Modern, vintage, urban, nature, edgy, formal, traditional, classic – I have certain locations that I have determined bring across those feelings to your images.

The colors in your clothing should play well against the location – for example, if we were shooting in an urban environment, wear bolder colors.  To get ideas of locations for a session, check the Categories tab at the top of the blog.

Sam totally trusted me during her senior shoot to hit some of my favorite spots in the downtown area – so we had a good mixture of urban, nature and modern.

Love this shot in the Arts District. The red dress against this background was perfection.
