Landscape or portrait?
1

By default I will always shoot in landscape mode and rarely turn the camera around to shoot the other way. It's also more comfortable this way with a regular camera. It seems nowadays people who use their phones for photography favour shooting portrait as that's the way they are holding their phone when they want to take a photo, and in addition to this with phones it's not that comfortable talking photos in landscape mode.

I took some quite good photos of the kids the other day and transferred them to my phone. I gave the phone to my other half to browse through them and she couldn't even be bothered to turn the phone to view the photos in landscape mode, so there were huge black borders at the top and bottom of the screen!

Don't even get me started on portrait video shooting..
