Add a picture that you think defines your style

In my band photography I like to be a bit more 'edgy'. I combine my flash with the ambient lighting to create lightstreaks all over the image...



Other than that, I try to shoot things at different angles (my wide angle lens helps a lot), in different ways, and make people think about things a bit more.

I don't know. I mean, do you really need a style? I think that just so long as you are creating original work and you are happy with what you are creating, then why worry about it? Besides, if you define yourself by a certain style then I think you do nothing but limit yourself, rather than leaving yourself open to different options. As you grow and learn you will probably change how you create and what you are putting out there anyway, so I think the best thing to do is just go with what feels right in the moment.

Sorry, I know that isn't what you asked for, but that is how I feel, so I'm not going to include a picture since I don't think any one picture can describe my "style". Well, except for maybe Nora's picture above. ;-)

"Besides, if you define yourself by a certain style then I think you do nothing but limit yourself, rather than leaving yourself open to different options."

How is that? Being aware of the sorts of images you've made in the needn't "limit" the images you make in the future. In fact, being aware of your work may help you avoid a "rut".

Consistiancies Jason.. Maybe not style
Owen Fifield 10 years ago
What is style if not our individual conceptions of what is beautiful, unique, or fascinating? Many of the subjects we're passionate about are dynamic and can be explored differently all the time. The unchanging things that we hold in great zeal are also the things that we cannot capture in photographs.

Everyone has a style all the have to do is look at their own work and they will see it .

Jason, being aware of the sorts of images you take and defining yourself by a style are two different things. Clearly I create different images than you, but if I say, "this is my style" then I might feel limited if, for example, I had the sudden desire to buy a film camera and shoot rummage sales all summer. I might have consistences in things like composition or processing, but that too changes. I might go through a phase where I feel more daring in my work and others periods where I want to do things that are more "safe". Right now the type of work I do is limited due to the current state of my life, but that will change as my life changes and unfolds. (And BTW, the work on my Flickr can't define what I do, because there is a lot that I don't post publicly that you might be surprised by if you saw it.)

Anyway, this is just my opinion and how I view my own work, so take it for what it is worth, and I wanted to give Ariel another POV. She seemed stressed by the fact that she couldn't find her "style" and I just don't see the point in thinking about it if it is going to stress someone out.

Completely random, somewhat complicated, and definitely not very well thought out : )

And although Storm Thorgerson is a great influence on me, I find it somewhat difficult to work in this manor as his Floyd stuff his pretty complex. Someday.

"Consistiancies Jason.. Maybe not style "

"Clearly I create different images than you, but if I say, "this is my style" then I might feel limited if, for example, I had the sudden desire to buy a film camera and shoot rummage sales all summer."

I thing we're hitting a semantic wall, here. I'm not clear on the difference between a "style" and the types of images that one has created in the past. Does it only become a "style" if we take the time to observe it and allow that observation to guide our future creation? If so, then the idea that acknowledging your visual style is self-limiting is tautological.

When we (as people) are being visually creative, we can't help but conform to some visual style which is somehow informed by our sense of aesthetics. You can call this your style or your visual pattern, or a cheeseburger with jalapenos, but it's clearly something. Otherwise we would all be robots that take compositionally identical pictures of different subjects.

Arrest Bush NOT Journalists

1)Real. Not fake. No fucking lighting. No fucking "cheese!"
Real life. Real things. Happening around me. The way things are whether we like it or not.

AFS

2) The real beauty that's hidden. That needs to be found. That I CAN find. That I keep in my bag. I set out to find these things. And I miss a lot, but I treasure every one that I can capture.

Lets Talk

3) Things that are there that can't actually be seen. I will make them real. I will make the things in my head real. Real real real.

Untitled

4) The way I wish the world could be.

Al,

That's interesting. I really like to take pictures of things that don't really exist.
