I don’t do a lot of cropping. I tend to just stick with the native output from the sensor. But lately, I’ve been branching out and trying something new – the square crop. So far, I’ve really been enjoying the different take on a scene.
I know it’s been the thing with Instagram for a long time, but I never was a fan of square images. I always felt like I was leaving out something integral to the photograph when I cropped it to fit. I imagine it’s different when you compose with a square image in mind. I do like the challenge of seeing things differently, but so far, I’ve just been cropping in post.
One thing is for sure: square or not, I still love negative space.
