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.
One thing we can always count on in life is change, so let’s look back at all we’ve seen evolve over the past year in the world, in our lives, and in ourselves, and welcome all that’s in store for the new year!
Let’s spend more time in nature, with friends, laughing, learning, growing, exploring, and making the best adventure out of life that we can!
To our continued journey of bettering ourselves, and finding the beauty in life and our imaginations~!
This lone tree sits in the grassy field of a ranch nestled against the Colorado mountains.
Ranches aren’t hard to find around here, so it’s a great escape from the city, even just to hike by and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of farm life.
Let’s get out and enjoy different areas of interest, even those close to home.
