Bob presented a few notes regarding the “square” image format.
- Improve composition. This is a creative option for doing this.
- Drop ‘Rule of Thirds’ limitations. Near edge and central positions can work well. Lines, shapes, and textures increase in impact.
- Enhance impact of black and white images.
- If you import your images to an iPad you can use the popular app Instagram to crop to the square format and apply special effects to enhance your images.
- Special effect lenses such as the Holga produce square, film-emulated images that can be very dramatic. You may want to give them a try.
