Square format images


Aug 30, 2010
Thanks Herman, and Wylie!

Wylie I love the light and composition and really love the grain on your B&W

Antonio I like all three of yours but the smoking hand shot is superb!

I'd be interested to know with peoples contributions if they are in camera square format, or at least taken with square format in mind, or just cropped in pp because that turned out to work best?

Will, yes, Antonio's smoking hand shot is a great close up! I also love the self portrait/portrait of father and son and the modern and classic camera image. It's a favorite of mine, as Antonio should already know.:wink:

My photograph is a crop...and it was actually suggested by a Flickr pal of mine after I'd posted the original image. I was, needless to say, very appreciative because it worked so much better in the square format.

Kathy - I'm so glad to see you here with your LX5 in such great form - and format!:th_salute:

Your choice of the square format underscores all the plays within this image - plus I think it emphasizes the fluidity of the flag and delicate nature of the spring buds against the strength of both the old and new architecture. Great colors going on in there, too, Kathy.

All three of mine were after the fact crops. The second and third, however, were conceptualized as square format.

Thank you all very much for your kind comments.

I don't ever set a camera to square format, but I'll often take a shot with the intention of cropping it to a square later. I'd rather make the final decision after the fact.
