What do you shoot, mostly? ... Horizontals, or Verticals?

Okay, all you square-format shooters ... this, clearly, isn't one for you ... so, you can skip it ... unless, you have some really positive remark!

More and more I find myself producing more vertical compositions than horizontal ones.

Isn't it funny? ... I've noticed that, too, Kris ...

Which is why I posted this .... was curious to see how many others had gotten tuned into verticals, rather than horizontals ....

When you turn it, do you wind up with the shutter button, on the top, or on the bottom?

Most of the cameras I use have a rotating back therefore the shutter is in the same place no matter the image's orientation. Perhaps, the ease of switching to vertical format is what has led me to use it. I also, used to shoot a lot of basketball games in college. That also had something to do with. For my 35mm/ digitals cameras I continue to use the main shutter button rather the one on the battery pack if there is one. The shutter button is generally on top.

I am square! I crop tightly on top and bottom when I shoot, then crop to square in PS. With this method the camera can stay horizontal and still require the minimum amount of cropping to get to square.

Unless you turn the 35mm DSLR for the vertical, the other way, Kris ... then, it's on the bottom ....

I'd say about 60% horizontal, 40% vertical orientation. Depends on the subject, and what I think works best. If I'm not quite sure, I often shoot both and decide later which to keep.

Shooting horizonals - although sometimes that may turn into square or even portrait when post processing.
I do most of my image viewing on a screen so that works best for me (and most "clients")

Hassy, WAKD?

DSLR, or film?

Right, Rook ... I do that, too ... but, most of the time, when I do ... it's the vertical, I keep ....

Some shots just cry out for Landscape Positioning ... but, others - do seem to work better at the Portrait Position, don't they?

I wonder if it might have something to do with the somewhat closer cropping, obtained, that way ....

Now, why on earth would you want to turn a perfectly good Landscape Orientation - into a square, Richard?

"I do most of my image viewing on a screen" .... ???

By screen - do you mean the LCD on the camera, or are you talking about the computer screen, when Post-Processing, Richard?

The camera LCD is just for making technical evaluation (like the histogram etc).

The computer screen for most of the other viewing (memories etc). I don't do a lot of printing.

From yesterdays classical concert shoot for a "client".
Not quite a square, however you get the idea.
Mostly done to improve the composition.
Not a lot of PPing, mostly just a crop, and noise redicton.
The available light was good, for this one.

You reduced noise on this one, Richard?

Couldn't have been much, there, to begin with, huh?

Nice shot .... you got a good expression, there ....

What did you crop out, to come up with your "off-kilter" square?

Like most, I suppose, I usually shoot horizontal but go vertical for subjects that seem to demand it. Since I usually print 8 x 10, there is the annoying cropping to consider.

Shot at ISO 6400 on M4/3 camera - they all need noise reduction (Shot inside a church (no additional photography lighting)). Most of the pics were shot at ISO 6400 and at f2.8 (wide open) for the long lens (out to 300mm (35mm equivalent)) .

Mostly vacant space cropped out.
