It's Hip to be Square

With the popularity of Instagram and cameras like the Holga there has been resurgence in square format photography.

In fact, square format photography has been around for many years.  Long before the digital age many photographers started in medium format with a camera that shot 6x6 cm negatives. However, today with Photoshop, Lightroom and other photo editing software you can easily you can take a photo and crop it square.

Why the appeal to Square Format Photography

The change in composition is refreshing and a new approach for many photographers. The simplicity of a square provides a certain inherent beauty and elegance to well a composed square image. There is little wasted space with a square photo. Eliminating any superfluous elements in your images can enhance them by just featuring the main subject.

With square format photography it comes back to having a single subject. You don’t want to split the viewer’s attention. You will want to move in close, or crop fairly tightly on the subject. By utilizing a single subject you will provide greater detail and add some depth to the image. Including some background for context is okay, but make sure that the background stays in the background
