    About 50% square, 50% rectangle.

    I'm probably a bit weird. I set up to print 8x10 and if the negative is square, I centre it in the rectangle and leave the spacing inbetween the neg to form black edges. With the Ilford Sporti I use, it very slightly vignettes so it gives a sort of soft edge anyway. It doesn't look weird if you're using slightly thin negs or where there's lots of black in the shot anyway (interior church photos of a wedding for example).

    let the negative tell me what to print. I try to fill the frame in the filed, but sometimes when I see it on the baseboard it needs a crop.

    By the way, a square is a rectangle.

    Pretty cool using an Ilford Sporti for weddings. If I had known that I would have you booked you for mine!

    I crop with the camera. If I want a square print, I shoot a square negative. And conversely.

    Ah I only did it as a favour for a friend who isn't very picky but just likes my printing/photography. Didn't even know if it was going to work at all, darkest venue ever. Metered it as far as my little light meter could take it (3200) and saw I needed about 1 stop more for it to be within the aperture/shutterspeed range of the sporti so developed it as EI 12500 in microphen (1 stop more than my expected EI of 6400).
    I think her requirements was "use those weird cameras you have" and B&W

    I was printing primarily 16x20 when I was shooting 6x6 (with a few 20x24). The main reason I switched to 6x7 was that I prefer the more traditional rectangle shaped prints, and I was essentially shooting 6x4.5 with the cropping.

    Cropping from the top would be using more of the edge of the lens and less of the center. Can that really considered comparable to using movement on a bellows camera or using a shift/tilt lens?

    That's true. A square is also a polygon, and a parallelogram.
