The Math of Digital Photography

Location image of event venue


This will be a three hour class with handouts. Bring your camera and portable computer.

Digital photography is fraught with math where you know it or it - embrace it or avoid it. At least being aware of the underlying concepts will help you make better decision on camera settings and post processing.

What exactly is DPI? What is Resolution? What is a Megapixel? What is Aspect Ratio? How do I resize my images to meet a DPI/Size Specification? Can I make an image Larger? What happens when I make an image smaller? Should I shoot in RAW or JPG? How do I crop for printing at standard sizes or fitting a certain size Mat? How can i use PhotoShop to plan an exhibit? This class will answer these questions and more. We'll look at the image size, canvas size and crop features in PhotoShop extensively. (also in elements) We'll demonstrate how to get an uncropped print that does not conform to a standard size at the discount printer.

OH . . . did I mention? THERE WILL BE MATH. Bring your portable computers. We'll do exercises.

I'll also demonstrate a cool exhibit planning trick.
