thinking outside the box

I have really enjoyed the idea of shooting in square format this month. I have found myself thinking about framing shots differently as I've looked for the 'square.' I'm so accustomed to composing a shot with the rule of thirds in mind, it has felt quite freeing to throw that idea out, and try something different.

How about you? Have you been challenged to 'think outside the box' this month as you look for the square? How has this theme changed the way you look for the shot, the way you compose an image? Will you continue to shoot square? Do you feel like you've gotten better at square shooting during the month? Do you find it easier to shoot square with a camera phone? Share with us in the comments what your experience has been this month.

Please don't quit shooting those squares, we still have a little over a week left (and I have one more square post to do) so keep submitting your images.

Square is fun, isn't it?! Beautiful images, the bokeh in the second is just amazing!

Hey, it's hip to be square!

Composing to a sq is a bit different, isn't it?! Great examples.

Just stumbled across you: what a lovely blog! I love the box hedge (is that what it is?) in the second photo, it looks like precious emeralds sparkling
