Today’s post does not contain a photo, but from time to time, I like to blog about certain career insecurities that may benefit other artists out there.
I would say the first couple of years of my photography career, I tried to emulate a handful of other artist’s that inspired me at the time.
What I would soon find out (through trial and error) was that I stumbled upon my own style to a fault through the means of experimenting with different sliders or filters. Granted a few youtube tutorials here and there, that helped along the way.
This practice allowed me to feel more comfortable from moving on from the artist’s that I was failing miserably trying to emulate.
For me personally, processing each image is determined on what the scene is trying to convey (feeling) in that particular moment of time, with the added intuition and input of the artist.
Different filters are going to complement certain subjects over others. Don’t be afraid to test the limits, and don’t second guess your decisions.
Where all going to come to a conclusion that makes sense for us.
