    I love the square format, and usually compose and print square. The exceptions are usually when I want to crop out some foreground in order to preserve the vertical perspective of buildings, trees, etc. Then the TLR becomes a sort of cheap view camera.

    Square. I like it. It's different than most others' photographs, it used to piss off my former photo professor too.

    I'd say more than 90% of my shots off 6x6 cameras stay square.

    So far I go with square -- it's part of what's new and exciting about the camera.

    (Perhaps when the novelty wears off . . . )

    As stated before, I also think, compose and print square.
    Actually, took me some time to learn how to employ the full frame 6x6 area effectively in landscape photography!
    It`s a very different way to see, very few things are square format in our rectangular dominant world.

    Hear, hear. I shoot mainly 645 and 35. On the few occasions I'm shooting square, it generally takes a few frames before I'm feeling comfortable with it. It's a different way to see, so a different approach is needed - for me, anyway. I print full frame the majority of the time, as well.

    I very seldom print square with 6x6 format since I often adjust the ratio of the print based on the subject matter. My guiding principle is to remove anything extraneous from the print that would take attention away from the subject. I've always found square prints to be rather ugly and static looking. However, there are a few subjects that look right in square format.

    I love the square format but I don't believe that it works for everything.

    That's a fact -- compositions that aren't square belong in a rectangle. But what's a rectangle... just an elongated square, right?
