Aspect Ratio 2 to 1 Panorama Photographs

Today pictures are not restricted by conventional print and paper sizes unfortunately for the convenience of galleries and on-line marketing tools this is still the norm but not here.  The means to present images in different sizes and formats are a matter of breaking the old mold. The 2 to 1 aspect ratio panorama photographs are becoming more in demand.  Not only is this great for the artist but also those wanting to purchase the art for their specific use. and environment.  I’m a believer that we should not be limited in our thinking and old ways.  That’s why at LapseOfTimeHK all images are limited in print quantity of one per print size and everyone will have a uniqueness.  That means after it sells it will go back into processing or the archives.  This is not an back catalog that will keep generating revenue for a gallery but will give the buyer something that is more special and one of kind.

Printing Info for 2:1 aspect ratio.  Common sizes 5”x10”, 10”x20”, 15”x30”, 20”x40”, 30”x60” (custom sizes as well as larger sizes are available in many different types of print formats – use the form below to contact me)  NOTE – Print sizes will vary slightly as cropping might not always create an exact dimension as stated above.  In order to keep pricing and organizing as simple as possible they have been put into closest aspect ratio.  If you need exact dimensions they are available.

Panoramic photography is an area of photography that opens up a whole new way of seeing the world we live in.  Living in a city with views wider than the eye can see makes the format very appealing. The technique of photography  be done using specialized equipment to applications on your smartphone.  Software is very much an important component when stitching and resolving many issues that are confronted when dealing with such big images.  Everything from exposure to lens optics have to be dealt with.  Post production is no different as many different software packages have their strengths and weaknesses.   It is sometimes also known as wide format photography. The term wide format has also been applied to a photograph that is cropped to a relatively wide aspect ratio. While there is no formal division between “wide-angle” and “panoramic” photography, “wide-angle” normally refers to a type of lens (35, 28, 24, 21, 20, 18 and 14 mm) but using this lens type does not necessarily make an image a panorama.  An image showing a field of view approximating, or greater than, that of the human eye – about 160° by 75° – is usually termed a panoramic. This generally means it has an aspect ratio of 2:1 or larger, the image being at least twice as wide as it is high. The resulting images take the form of a wide strip. Some panoramic images have aspect ratios of 4:1 and sometimes 10:1, covering fields of view of up to 360 degrees. You will find that at LapseOfTimeHK we have the greatest variety of panoramic images from all around HK in many different conditions.

 

LapseOfTimeHK images are all unique and once the image has been sold at a set size above 20″ in one dimension it will be unavailable in that size. The original will either go back for reprocessing or will go into the vaults.  If you purchase an image fitting that and you see the image for sale I will refund you the purchase price plus shipping.  Prints are available in Lambada on normal paper and metallic paper.  Fine Art paper using newest Inkjet technologies and finest local labs. Images can also be printed on canvas.  For businesses we also offer the service where you can rent and image over a period of time to keep your office image current.  More details
