Square ebook


(all prices in USD)

In the Square ebook, I delve deep into the mysteries of the square format. Before digital cameras, the only way you could use the square format (cropping excluded) was to buy a 6×6 medium format camera. Now, digital cameras have opened up the square format to everybody.

But using the square format isn’t simply a matter of cropping – there’s a lot more to it than that. The square format demands a new approach to composition. The rule of thirds no longer applies. Instead the composition relies on aspects like shape, simplicity and balance.

Square ebook

Square explores the square format from the digital photographer’s perspective. It shows you how to use the square format on your camera, and how to make the most out of what I think of as the fine art photographer’s format. It’s illustrated throughout by my photos, and I’ve also interviewed two photographers, Matt Toynbee and Flavia Schaller, to explore their perspective on the square format.
