rather than post a new thread i'll use this one.
personally, i don't mind the odd ball or 4/3rds format 10 x 15, etc. i rarely print for myself, but i do have people that buy from me.
they always want a standard size 8 x 10, 11 x 14 - sometimes because they already have a frame or mat at home and it's easy to frame. i had one person willing to pay for custom framing, so printing and framing was not a problem, whatever the size was, it was. then there are some that want standard size, but they would lose a lot of the image.
so what are my options for getting the 3:2 look in a 4:3 camera. i read somewhere that i should put tape over something? the viewfinder or the LCD screen. i do have an e620, so i can change the format, but i also have older prints where it's too late to change anything.
i don't want to crop off any of the image, so i'm going to have to either
i hope this makes sense. to recap: i don't want to crop my photo, but i will need to print a 3:2 ratio image from a 4:3 camera (for some clients). what are my options. thanks.
maybe i should learn how to frame and cut mats, eh?
i do use adorama for printing and they are good at not cropping my photos, but then there is a huge 1-3 inch white border either at the top/side/bottom of photo. then a client tries to mat that an an 11 x 14 mat and there's a white space.
perhaps i could back up a bit and leave room for cropping. i always crop in camera and do very little post processing or cropping. maybe that could work in the future, not sure what to do about the photos i've already taken. just tell people, no, they can't have them in the 3:2 format.
well at least i found some frames that don't need to be custom made. ready made 4/3 frames: http://www.framedestination.com/FDI_.../default/op/1/
