|Landscape mode makes an environmental portrait|
|'Russian' tilt for vitality|
3:2 standard 35mm film aspect ratio
4:3 TV format
3:1 Super Pano
1:1 Square or Hasselblad format
Panorama is preferred by many landscape aficionados. While the 1:1 is often the choice of high end portrait photographers.
|Square format for universality and class|
Landscape photographers traditionally prefer landscape format and wide-angle lenses but using a vertical (portrait) format may suit the subject better and may also break the predictability of your shots. (less boring!)
Then, there's the 'Russian' tilt. This is where you tilt the portrait format 10-15 degrees to give the person some oomph! I tend to use it with teenagers and young business people but we could all do with a dose of oomph once in a while.
