sea change



The day I took this was the day I decided to switch my camera to square format all the time. I am very lucky that my camera, a micro four-thirds model (a Panasonic GH2) has the option to shoot in square format and yes, I do realise this may seem criminal to people who have fancier cameras.
But I love squares. They are perfect in every way.
Later on that day, I took some pictures with the Rollei, as I wrote in my previous post on square format. I haven't taken a non-square picture for three weeks now and I haven't missed 3:2 at all. Try it yourself and jump in, as Sandrine L's picture shows so beautifully. I love her quiet mood. There's no need to make a splash when you're shooting in square. Just give it a go if you haven't already...

Two beautiful, tranquil pictures. I'm so envious of you, Kirstin, being able to change your aspect ratio to square; it's a shame more cameras don't offer this.

I love both these pictures Kirstin, they are a perfect combo. I could see them hung together on a wall! I'm starting to want your camera...
