Finding Your Style

Finding your own style can be pretty difficult, especially if your just starting out. You haven’t tried much so you’re trying everything that you can and trying to figure out what you like. Obviously I went through the same thing that’s why I want to go over it with you guys.

Finding your own style is definitely going to take you awhile. Don’t look at that as a bad thing though because it’s a journey and it’ll teach you a lot. I’m still trying to perfect my style and I’m always trying new things to figure out what I like. For example I tried editing in a different style than I normally do and I’m going to stick with editing that way now. If you’re not trying new things you’re not learning and that’s clearly just going to hold you back.

My best advice to finding your own style is to look at other peoples work that you admire, take different bits and pieces of everything that you like, and try and recreate it. Get out there and shoot as much as you can because the more you shoot, the better you’re going to get. Practice as much as you can and edit the same picture 5 different times and see what you like.

Work as hard as you can.

Go Shoot

Yo what’s goin’ on guys! So recently I’ve been really trying to get out and shoot as much as I can lately so I grabbed my buddy Ian for a quick second and took these photos! I wanted to switch it up and shoot in a different environment but I still wanted a moody vibe.

It wasn’t an overcast day but the sun was going down so we ended up with some pretty well lit shots straight out the gate. We were actually running out of time and had to pick a location relatively close to my house in order to shoot in time before we lost light. I just wanted to try and shoot in order to learn. I think it’s crucial that everyone gets out there as much as they can and take photos just to practice because that’s the only way you’re going to get better.

One quick tip I want to give you guys is to turn your subjects body slightly away from your light-source, and turn their heads towards the light-source, it generally compliments your subject with nice shadows and falloff. Overall the shoot was a quick one but it went well and I might create a LUT from these images that you guys can download. Actually, anyone that signs up for the newsletter I’ll send them this LUT so scroll all the way down on any page and sign up. I’ll catch you guys in the next blog or video, just whichever comes first lol
