1:1

Alert readers may have noticed that I am lately fond of the 1:1 ratio in processing photos. (Why does that sound so familiar)? I’ve seen many photographers present in the square format and I think it’s more popular today than it ever was.  I think this format, more so than most others, draws your eye to the center of the composition.  You may have to keep the format in mind when shooting, but still, it’s flexible enough that many photos may look great cropped square even if it wasn’t the original intention.  Again, Lightroom has 1:1 listed as a standard crop ratio in the Crop tool set and it’s very easy to apply.
