Why Change Your Digital Cameras Aspect Ratio?

Aspect ratio is the ratio of the length regarding the side of the images. A 35mm frame is 36mm wide and 24mm high. This has an aspect ratio of 36:24. This number can be reduced down to 3:2. Most digital cameras have a 4:3 ratio. There are several reasons to change your digital aspect ratio. Some of these reasons will be discussed below.

Distortion

If, while taking a photo, the image appears too cramped, you can change the aspect ratio in order to widen the object in the image. It can also work in the opposite effect. If the object appears distorted and too wide, changing the aspect ratio can bring the image together and make it appear less distorted.

Edges

If there is too much space between the object being photographed and the sides of the screen, tweaking the aspect ratio can reduce this space. The viewer of the photograph will concentrate more on the main image rather than the surrounding area. This can also work to add more space to the edge of an image. If it appears that the image is too close to the edge of the screen, the aspect ratio can be changed in order to add more space to the edges.
