Photographic Style

When I first started this endeavor of throwing myself into my photography and learning, improving, practicing, and publishing, I read a lot about Photographic Style.  These books recommend that you choose one.  What the heck does that mean?  Why can’t I just shoot whatever I want, whenever I want, as it appears to me?  I pretty much disregarded the advice.

Now, as I look at my photos, I realize, I didn’t disregard it… I did make a decision,even if it might not have been conscious.  I dislike taking photos of people.  I am just uncomfortable pointing a photo at a person as I feel it invades their space.  That may seem silly, but it’s just not my thing.  So I avoid it.  (That being said, I am trying to get more into it, as it does add a lot to a photo.)


I naturally find myself taking photos of my environment.  Those are the types of photos that inspire me, and make me comfortable.  I love capturing the Landscape and Wildlife that surrounds me.  I can be at peace with those subjects, take my time, and carefully compose the perfect picture.

So I guess my Photographic Style found me… I’m a Landscape and Wildlife photographer.  Hmmm.  I’m way ok with that.
