Rome. Mixed Cameras. All square.

Haven’t surrendered to the siren call of the gfx100s yet? I thought the prospect of 75 megapixel square photos would be too much 😃

Almost all my portrait shooting has been square. I even played around briefly with an APSC lens on the Sony A7Riii using the "native" square crop.

Now, instead of saying I was inspired by Instagram, I can say I was inspired by Kirk Tuck.

Neither is technically true, though. I was inspired by a portrait that I saw long ago. I hate to sound obvious, but I think it was Dorothea Lange, (who rarely cropped her photos as ordinary squares.) But when it works, it really works.

My favorite of those is the last one. I assume that is your favorite as well.

In #1 this is a newsPAPER? That must have been ages ago...

I deeply enjoy this image - someone being really interested not in a big-lettered tabloid. There has been hope, then...

I do so love it when you post your Street images.

Do you consciously organize your images or is it instinctive? There's always some counterfoil in the background that plays off against the main subject that adds depth and strength to the image. LOVE IT!! LOVE IT!! LOVE IT!!

These are fabulous; I love them. I especially like frame no. 5, where a young couple is engrossed by each other and on the left, a lady is very grumpy about her ice cream cone. Are these all 6x6 negatives? I do not see the Hassellad v-shape tic marks on frames 1 to 5.

Frames one through five were shot with a Mamiya 6.

The fifth frame is amazing-the intimate couple with a girl who looks like, but probably isn’t, the odd one out. And, forgive me, but the woman in the last frame looks like she’ll still be a vest-pocket hottie when her hair turns white!

Yes. She is.....
