Style

No, we are not talking about your clothing style, we are talking about photography style. Earlier today I read an article that talk about how you have to pick a style and stick to it in order to become a better photographer. I have been thinking about it all day and yes most photographers who are successful have a style that they stick to and known for, but do you really have to. I love street photography and for the most part that is what I do, but I also like city and architecture photography and some landscape, I love photography in general so why should I be limited to only 1 style. I think learning other styles is important and will help you develop as photographer.


Both photos represent 2 different styles of photography, but I love them both.

Photowalk with Trey

I was part of Trey Ratcliff New York PhotoWalk a rare opportunity, first to meet him and second to go on the PhotoWalk with him. While I personally do not do any HDR work or much landscape photography, I do however follow Trey. What I like about Trey is how open he is about sharing online and not being worried about people stealing his pictures, please check out his site and blog at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/
There were supposed to be over 200 people on this PhotoWalk, I don't know if we actually reached or exceeded this number, but there was a lot of us. (Can you see Trey?)
We walked from Broadway & Cortland, down to the Battery Park, stopping at different places to take some pictures, imaging 200 photographers walking down the street LOL, that could be a start to a good joke :) Once in Battery park we waited for the sunset to take some pictures of it, so I decide to try my hand at HDR. This is my first attempt and it was educational.
All in all it was time well spent and I enjoyed the walk and people. Talking about people here are some shot of the photographers at the walk.

Why?

Have you ever taken a picture and it is nothing special, but yet you cannot stop looking at it, because there is something about it. I recently took 2 of such pictures, there is nothing special about them at all, but yet I love them and not because I took them, trust me i am my worth critic. Have you ever came across such picture? Where you cant explain why you like it, you just do. Maybe it is the way it is processed, may be it is something else, let me know in the comments what you think.

My photography quote for today is:
“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” – Alfred Stieglitz

Second Picture is people in the tunnel
