Four Common Mistakes in Dental PhotographySeptember 5, 2019 by AACD Executive Office
It's important to capture excellent clinical images for AACD Accreditation submissions. Photos that are poorly shot can negatively impact a case submission. Here are four common dental photography mistakes along with tips to help you capture better images for your clinical case submissions:
1. UNDESIRABLE EXPOSURE
Take test images using direct undiffused lighting with an aperture setting at f-32, ISO at 100, and the shutter speed set at 1/100.
2. INAPPROPRIATE ANGLE
3. IMPROPER FRAMING
4. INCORRECT MAGNIFICATION
Settings will vary with sensor and face size. Cameras with smaller sensors will require approximately a 1.5 times increase setting on the lens barrel, such as [1:10 (1:15), 1:2 (1.3), 1:1 (1:1.5)].
