Square crop

Tuesday July 8, 2014

NEW YORK NEW YORK – More work with the really wide lens, this time on Park Avenue in the 50s. For the first image below I shot level in portrait orientation and cropped the foreground out, resulting in a square format. This is a common technique shooting very wide – the need to level almost always results in too much foreground. I grew up shooting 2 ¼ inch square so this isn’t a burden for me – I tend to see in squares anyway. I shot the same tree looking up a bit and it was much less successful at every level. The commonplace look up and view of GCT demonstrate this lens’s lovely rendering.

Day 1,727 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
