In this week’s podcast, we take a look at the question of does our style change when we change what we photograph or is our style consistent. I was asked recently if our style changes all the time based on what we photograph. They gave the example of black and white landscapes verse color fashion photography each being of interest but having a completely different look and approach. I thought it was a great question to tackle this week.
For many of us, our core style will always be there in an image, no matter what. The core style of who we are shows up in those images. We might change projects or shift approaches, but there are core elements to our style that seep through the work even if we change mediums and format. This isn’t to say that our style doesn’t evolve and change as it is constantly updated and molded as we live our life. In some cases, after a major event or awareness type event, our style might dramatically shift, but at the core of that style is still who we are as a person. As long as we are authentic to who we are, the style will be there no matter how different the images might, on the surface, appear. Digging a little deeper into the images might just show how much of your style is there all along.
As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.
