The square composition

The square frame has no tension as such. It gives the subject lots of space and therefore breaths rest. It is up to the artist to give the image tension and excitement by means of subject choice and composition.

Within the square many routes for the eyes can be made: triangles, diagonals, diamonds, Andrews crosses, where everything points to the center or ovals.
Of course all of this can be done with the rectangular format as well, but in my experience the square has more to offer here.
For symmetry there is space enough, even if the axis of the reflection is not exactly in the middle. Within the square one can very well put that axis higher or lower, without hitting the head or bottom of the frame.
