Experimenting with different styles of photography is the best way to decide what we want to do, and how we want to do it. How we find our own style.
But let’s remember that even when we find our signature style, we’re still allowed to experiment and play around.
This landscape photograph was taken during a cloudy afternoon while hiking the sandstone bluffs in Ute Valley Park, and was edited with more of an HDR approach than my usual style.
It looks different, and obviously feels different as it’s not what I’m used to sharing and doesn’t fit with the style and brand that I’m going for. It’s not the style I want people to expect when following my work.
And that’s OKAY.
We’re allowed to play. We’re allowed to experiment. We’re allowed to put out photography that’s different from our style.
Brand experts would say that too much experimentation can detract from our brand, and they may be right. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still play around.
Let’s keep experimenting. We’ll take approaches and create images that are different from what we and others are used to, but we might also find a new style and direction we want to take our photography in.
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
