Since photograph, ie 15 years, the most common advice that I consistently hear is that you must have style. Even the great photographers that I respect, I heard this idea, as the most important thing is to have style, if you want to succeed in the international market. I read this theory books. So far I've been asked if I succeed or not, I want to sacrifice my freedom to succeed or fail. I'll start from the premise that any style can let (even if deeply analyzing reality, I realize that many people sympathetic remained prisoners of their style) and it's worth trying at least once in life to have style.
I style. The first question I ask myself: this style have to do, or comes naturally? Let's assume that I have the patience to wait twenty years, that if I start to look, grow old and die poor. In addition, why wait to build something in decades, when we can not even tomorrow, with a little willpower? What will be in twenty years? Will there be photos? Will there be Earth? Nothing is certain, we live a world where only what the hand does not lie. So I start and do my style. Quick, quick! How can I make a speech? Analyze several variants:
One. Through postprocessing
Pro1: The easiest and safest method. I take all the pictures and enhance them, too. To simplify my life, I can even make a preset or batch. Press a button, a little finer adjustments to each photo and ready, I have a style. Fast, cheap, effective = RIE note!
Pro2: Inspiration comes more easily. If you have ideas, I look different communities on the net photographic look at the beloved son of the people, and in half an hour we copy the style. If you can not do, or do not have time to look for the most beloved images on the net, then look directly tutorials, in which the three minutes I have a simple recipe and safe: you Vibrance -30, fill light near maximum blacks somewhere in the middle, maximum vignetting, save presets. Concrete. What are her Lala, experience, when successful people gave me a recipe for success?
Cons: RIE, that comes one that yesterday I found myself photographer and bought the camera, and photoshop installed, and in half an hour stealing my style. Without shame, without blinking. Fuck me dead thief-sii borît! Then I, with a bitter taste in the gizzard, can I pass the cv that "the first in Romania to combined HDR hue and vignetting" but nobody cares. Yes, we live in a crazy world where the real work and effort put barricade huge photo simply are not appreciated.
