Square Crops

Justin Ruttan

Count me in as a longtime fan of square photos. I cropped both of these photos to make them square, but you can buy square-format film cameras in a variety of makes and models — a Hasselblad if you have several thousand dollars or more burning a hole in your pocket. If you want a digital version of the latest Hasselblad, you’re looking at around $30,000+ US.

One of these photos took more editing than expected, and the other one took less editing than expected. Can you figure out which was which, and why? When I get more time I’ll write out my setup for both.
