Love the Square

Sometimes I just have to get away from people, I need silence. Although in my photography I like to make pictures of people, there are times when I just want to be on my own. On these occasions, I often pick up my old Hasselblad, a 30 year old camera that was made in Sweden. A big heavy awkward box of a camera, that uses roll film that has only12 frames, the negs are square, and for these reasons it slows me down. I really enjoy composing in a square, I love the square.

  1. Love the notches in the frames, especially on the birdhouse photograph it works really well. Such a great format, the square

    1. Yes I agree. Did you notice that I scanned the jug picture the wrong way round, the notches are on the right. Whoops!
