Never heard of the “Element Theory of Landscape Photography?” Well I made it up! But it helps me to understand why some of my landscape shots are better than others and it also helps me to recognize when it’s “happening” out in the feild as well. Maybe it can help ya’all too! (Music by www.danosongs.com and all photos by Edward Thomas – Thanks!)

A4 is short for DIN A4, DIN stands for Deutsche Industrie Norm, which means German Industrial Norm for paper sizes. A4 is the aspect ratio and the size of the paper. A is the ratio (there’s also B,C etc) and 4 is the actual size within the ratio. The smaller the number, the bigger the sheet (A4 x2=A3, A4 /2=A5).

Thanks for this…this really helps clarify the thought process, and this also applies to other types of photographs also….very good.

you know what a4 and all that means when you understand size based on reference

SBNakhi says:

great videos. I only have one question.
how do I know what counts as an element and what doesnt?

thanks

After A0 we get 2A0 and then 4A0 and so on. A0 has an area of 1 squere meter. All formats follow the rule: y=x.sqr2 (squere root of 2) regarding its sides. We have as well the B and C series formats acording to ISO 216.

and after A0? I get the system but i think it would have been better if they reversed the naming so that A1

LMOCELIM says:

After A1 comes A0. The smaller the number the bigger is the format. A0 is twice the size of a A1, as the A1 is twice the size of A2, and so one. A4 is pretty much the same size of a normal office paper, or a notebook.

A0 is bigger than A1 (double), A2 is smaller than A1(half).
The system (ISO 216) is ingenious. Every advancement in size means that the width of the bigger size (ie A3) is the length of the smaller size (A4). This means that if you cut an A3 shet in half, you get two A4 sheets etc.

Lol… the A system is quite easy! A4 is about the size of a magazine page or a letter. A3 is the size of 2 A4 sheets side by side (think of an open magazine), A2 is lthe size of 2 A3 sheets side by side…. and so on.

A5 is the size of an A4 folded in half, and A6 is… well you get the idea!

Any new way of looking at something is always good! Glad I could help! Thanks! – Edward

photouniverse says:

A2? I don’t know… Thanks! – Edward

jojjebros says:

I loveee your chanal. And btw i don’t get the A system either! What comes after A1 btw?

atul tayade says:

I like this element theory 🙂 Never really thought about in such perspective. I appreciate your effort.

On a side note, i understand A4 and A3 sizes 😉 we use metric system here in India but when you have seen such sizes the nomenclature is easier to understand.
