What Is Our Style?

finding your personal photographic style is something of a holy grail to photographers, yet seldom an overnight occurrence. Nor would you want it to be, as developing a style that is uniquely yours is one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of photography. For a lot of photographers, it is an ongoing, ever-evolving process, influenced by many factors. Some photographers find a single style that works for them, which they stick to and hone, while others might develop two or more dominant styles. What exactly does it mean to find your photography style? How does one even find a photography style? Perhaps an acid trip in the desert? While this mind altering experience may open your minds eye, it’s probably not the best plan to find your true style. You need to think more about your aesthetic and what you like about photography more generally.  What photographers do you admire? What about their pictures do you like? Do you prefer the high-key whimsical look?  Are you really into black & white? These are the types of questions you will undoubtedly need to search your soul for!
