2.25 x 2.25

2 1/4 x 2 1/4 is one of my favourite ratios to photograph in and the numbers here represent the size of film being used in inches. The square. I can either pick up a medium format camera, as I did for this image, or I can crop one of my digital cameras. You can check out more of my images made as squares by clicking on the “square” tab on the right. This image was made quite a few years ago in Edmonton while I was waiting for my wife to get off work. She was working at the Charles Camsell Hospital in Edmonton and so I would sometimes get there a bit early and wander about the area with my Yashicamat 124G twin lens camera. I really enjoy using twin lens cameras for their relatively small size and simplicity, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy working with a Hasselblad either. The main advantage to the Hasselblad is that I can change lenses, but also that I view what I am photographing through the taking lens. I don’t recall what film was used in this case, although I suspect it was Fujichrome 50D. I couldn’t find the original this morning, but when I do come across it I’ll update the post, not that it really matters all that much.
