There are so many fun contests on BYC and most of them require a photo from you in order to participate. Some of these contests require a specific photo orientation to qualify.
Most of us know that by simply rotating your phone or camera that the photo will be vertical or horizontal but in the contest rules it may request “Portrait” or “Landscape”. This is a quick explanation of the differences so that you can make sure your photo always qualifies!
The term landscape is used in relation to an image that is wider than taller. In other words, it is an image that is captured in a horizontal layout.
On the other hand, a portrait refers to an image that is taller than it is wide. This means that it is shot in a vertical layout.
If the photo you would like to submit isn’t the correct orientation, don’t forget that you can often crop your image too!
