Own your style.
So last night I attended an event, The photos in this post are from that night. During the event, I got to thinking about style, what is it and what is my style?
I am going to talk mainly about my portrait work. I have a slightly different style for street and landscape photos.
First, let me try to define, what is style?
I feel it is the specific “look” a photographer develops over time and experience. Put it simply, it is what I like to see in photos.
How did I develop my style?
I’ve taken thousands of photos, looked at more, visited art galleries and read a lot of art and photography books. I consumed and created. Experience and creative work is probably the most important thing I have done to develop my style. Either behind the camera (most of the time), or drawing ideas. I try to create something daily.
