Portrait orientation yes or not?

This Sunday I was planning a trekking in Val Grande but the strong increase in Corona Virus infections has blown my plans. Alternatively

This Sunday I was planning a trekking in Val Grande but the strong increase in the infections from Corona Virus has blown my plans. Alternatively I am forced to offer you some archive photos, obviously taken in Val Grande and all strictly in portrait orientation.

The question is: when should one take a photograph vertically rather than using the more traditional landscape cut?

Reading books and magazines of photographic technique, it is clear that one should take a portrait photograph above all in these cases:


- the subject of the image is simply higher than it is long

- the image contains lines running from the bottom up or vice versa

- the subject of the photo moves vertically

- when you tend to focus your attention on the subject of the photo, excluding all disturbing elements


In general, however, I believe that you should experiment as much as possible, never as in this case the old adage is valid: 'Learn the rules so that you can break them properly! '.

Happy weekend to everyone!
