    I shoot 6x6 and 35mm and will print "full frame" or crop the heck out of it. Sometimes square, sometimes not. Occasionally I'll even crop the top and bottom of a 35mm to make it long (or tall) and thin. I have two prints from the same 6x6 neg. One printed square and the other heavily cropped. Both work for me and suggest 2 almost different moods.
    Square, rectangle, triangle, round, hey what ever works!
    Oh and the last thing I do as I squeezing the shutter is sneeze.

    I've always thought the ability to compose on the easel was the advantage of doing your own. If it works square print it square.


    Personally I think 4x5/8x10 are really square. I know the math majors will jump up and down but they're so close to square that I think they're square.

    I actually do I lot less thinking about composition in square than with the rectangle.
    This is exactly the same feel I have. We're square souls!

    I think it depends. You can print square from 35mm, 6x4.5 and 6x7, rectangular from 6x6 and a wide panoramic from any of them. If it works, it works.

    For me personally, I am not tied to amy format unless the patron paying for my services requests a horizontal, vertical or square. I try to fill the frame and at times have been burned by the square format of the Blads. Tough to crop to a 8x10 print with a full frame 6x6. Many magazine covers are square,
    but many also request Verticals and a few even horizontal. I try to cover all the bases when I am not sure how a shot is going to be used, by shooting the subject in such a manor it can be cropped to any shape an editor chooses.

    For my own work, I let the subject matter dictate or guide me in how it best can be rendered. I do not pretend to be an artist, just an image maker.
