The square is a very stable shape.

Since starting to post my work on Instagram where the main format is 1:1, Square, 1080 x 1080 I have found this to be a very creative and challenging exercise that I sometimes carry out on existing photos . It’s a great way of improving images that have too much empty space either side of the main subject.

The more I look at other photographers work, the more I approach taking photos with an intent to  crop to the square format. This makes me try to take care to compose it in a way that suits the square format, but often like with anything in life, practice and more practice is needed as I become more aware of the creative possibilities of the square format.
