Austrian Treescapes – Square Studies

Peter Richter

Peter Richter

As an amateur outdoor photographer living in Vienna, I enjoy spending a lot of time in nature and try to share my experiences. I first became familiar with analog black and white photography in my youth, and I was always interested in the whole process from image composition to finalising the print. Later on I turned to digital techniques and deepend my knowledge in image processing and printing. My work mainly consists of landscape images from Austria and other European countries. I focus on intimate landscape images, first of all trees and forests.

Photographing forests and trees belong to the main areas of interest for me. It is an exciting and rewarding challenge in my opinion to explore the possibilities of framing a scene within the square format. There are different compositional principles compared to other formats.

For example, it is often more appealing to place a subject in the centre of a square image than in a rectangular one. Yet a decentered placement may work as well in other cases. But this is only one aspect. There would be a lot to discuss I think.
