This is the fifth year in which I have been presenting some of my photos with a square crop.
As photographers have knows for many decades, the 1:1 — otherwise known as square — aspect ratio
can be very appealing.
When processing a photo, one technique to improve the image is to utilize cropping. Sometimes there are areas of the photo which are distracting and need to be cut out. In other instances, the shape of the subject is better presented by changing the aspect ratio of the photo to 1:1.
In order to bring attention to the appeal of square photos, I am gathering them from where they appear in other 2016 albums and am presenting them here, set apart by themselves. We are now about half-way through the year, and there is a modest collection of about 20 square images to inaugurate this album.
Fortunately, when it comes to photography, it’s not square
to be square!
Don’t miss the square photos taken during other years:
In addition, you can see all of my square photos together in the Square Images (All Years)
