I’ve never really tried using a square crop before really. I’ve seen it about on a lot of blogs, it has a kind of vintage feel that I like, however the main advantage of a 1:1 ratio over a 3:2 is that it forces you to change up your composition. I know this image has a fair bit of distortion and that weird blue patch, this is how it came straight out of the camera and I have to say I really like it.
I’m trying to use editing programs less and get everything right in camera. If it’s right first time then you don’t have to mess around with it later. That’s not to say of course that there’s no room for digital editing, it can achieve things that physically can’t be done in camera.
