Square is a very interesting format. I feel it gives much more freedom in composition. As 3/4 or 2/3 format have many awkward focus spots, in square it's very hard to find any spots that would be impossible to handle. This is one reason I feel square is a very good format for beginners too.

Square's symmetry is also very appealing and therefore very good for symmetrical compositions and abstracts. I find it also very suitable for street photography, details and textures and for landscapes.

Some examples of square compositions:

Landscape. A tree at Vesijärvi Lake. Lahti, Finland.

Details. Symmetry.


And something else...

Now go and make a square!
