DX lenses on a Nikon D800E - 3 The elegance of 5x4

All images - Nikon D800E - Nikon 55-200mm DX zoom

One of the reasons I like shooting with these DX lenses is I get to use a 5:4 frame. This is a classic ratio for photography. The 10x8 paper size was used extensively, a lot of the time for portfolio pictures as this ratio is supposed to be closest to the proportions of the human head. Anyone who has been shooting portraits for a while will know all about the 10x8 head shot.

There is just something very satisfying about it. That hint of horizontal or vertical just making the difference.
