Defining a style

I recently read a photography article from the website In the article it spoke of defining your photography style. While I wasn’t overly ensued on how it was written, I did enjoy the overall concept of the article. I realized that in my photography journey, I haven’t really defined my style completely. Just like in the article, I am a photographer that really hasn’t kept to one genre (i.e. black and white, color, landscape, animals, etc). Like a photographer I heard speaking on the podcast Tiny Shutter, I feel I am more an eclectic photographer. I like all types of genres and styles. But I do agree with the author from picture correct that it is probably important to define my style…at least for those images I choose to share on my own website or photography portfolio. I will concede the point that photos I choose to share for “fun”, I will drift more towards the podcast interview guest and lend towards my eclectic nature. I will almost admit that at one point I thought I had define my own style as represented by the pictures below, but when I showed them to my local camera club, the judges didn’t respond well to them. After all I also wanted to be marketable.

I’m not really sure if my photograph will style change again before settling into a comfortable fit like a well worn pair of shoes, but I hope that the newer style I have chosen will lend to becoming more valuable in the market place.
