Last week at OAC Photo Club, we revisited photographing water drops and this time aimed to capture the crown of the splash. Once you have everything set up, it’s all about the timing.

If you follow my twitter feed @laurahana, you may have noticed that I’ve been posting photos I’ve taken with my iPhone with an app called Instagram. Instagram is a bit like twitter, but with photos. It comes with a variety of filters to create vintage, plastic camera-like processing. The app only posts photos in a 1:1 ratio, or in a square format, which opened my eyes to different kinds of compositions.

The shoe shot above was originally photographed in a 2:3 ratio but I decided to crop it to 1:1 for a change. It’s always fun to challenge yourself to try new things when it comes to photography.

What do you think about the square format?
