Interested in finding your style? Isn’t everyone? It’s the seemingly impossible goal when you first get into photography. It takes a lot of practice and a lot of pictures. If you try to force it, it won’t happen.
It’s essential to speaking to your ideal clients. It gives your brand a cohesive look, making your work look expensive.
Alright, alright we get it. Having a cohesive style is the goal of every photographer. So is there anything we can do to find it?
My advice: stop looking at everyone else’s photos and try a personal project.
Think of something creative, just for you. Not something that you think will make you money, not something that is for impressing anyone. It’s just for flexing your creative muscles.
If you follow me on instagram you have probably seen my miniature landscapes project. It’s where I create stories and paintings around tiny people.
Yeah, that’s a little different than food! It’s helped me though. I noticed a particular tone and style in my miniature landscapes that are also in my food photography. I’ve kept that style in mind every time I edit photos and it’s made my Lightroom editing so much easier.
So try something different. You’re a creative person. There must be something outside of your niche that you can try. If you decide to try something be sure to share with everyone on instagram with the hashtag #cozyproject.
Keep up the awesome photos!
