I hope that it will be of interest to you as well. I just recently finished another portfolio of my work. I was not aware until I had printed, mounted, and matted the individual prints (12 of them) that every single one was in a vertical orientation. Since these were from 4X5 negatives, I had to make a decision at the time of exposure to rotate the camera back. </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
You made a choice with the first one but after that? It's not like you rotated back and then said to yourself no I really want this one vertical. I don't find the difference between 4x5 portrait and landscape that great. 6x9 sort of screams out landscape to me.
On the lens issue I took somebody's advice and made one of those cardboard cutouts with a string attached. Looks goofy but it seems to help me visualize better. 210 to 240 seems to be right most of the time but then a 50mm seemed just fine on 35mm to.
