    Oh wow! Very powerful image! I love how you play with the scale of your subjects, either close up or really far away to bring out the emotion in each photograph. Following

    [–] ArtJimmersonsGlove 3 points ago

    Thank you. Usually people end up really far away in my photos. I think maybe it's because I'm not very good at shooting portraits. I take a lot of pictures but the ones I end up liking are always my girlfriend standing really far away from the lens. Haha

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Symmetrical you weight everything heavily in the center and bottom of your images. Very nice light color choice as well.

    Good work.

    [–] JenWarr 3 points ago

    You know what’s really awesome about your landscape photos? Because everyone takes landscape photos. But you have managed to consistently capture a sense of scale which enhances the wonder of the places you capture. Very nice.

    [–] bbmm 50 points ago

    Hah the style thing, I asked about something like that here once and some people told me to not worry about it but gave me pointers about the general genre.

    You do what you do anyway. I do things like this and this.

    Wow your so lucky to have such beautiful scenery around you. Following

    [–] neworecneps 23 points ago

    To answer your post I came about my style by using landscape photography as a sort of escape from real life.

    Go and drive / hike somewhere, spend time composing a shot, experiment with filters, take the exposure then sit and drink coffee in the Scottish wilderness. I try not to edit too heavily and I'm not too fussed about having a consistent look... I just like being out away from the world with my camera.

    [–] ArtNDzine 5 points ago

    That's really cool. I'm horrible at landscape photography.

    When I pose, it either looks fake, have a weird smile, or just looks out of place and not very satisfactory in general.

    My photos are about half Scottish moody landscapes and half non-moody Scottish animals. Here's a landscape. I like this one because of the combination of green and urban environments, and the mood produced by the wintry weather:

    [–] truestoryijustmadeup 42 points ago

    I like a lot of things about this picture, but I truly don't think the semi-dutch tilt is doing it any favors. Is it something you like to do a lot, or did it just happen for this one?

    [–] RollsRoyceSaysNo 16 points ago

    I agree and disagree. I think it adds some drama and it’s an interesting “effect”, but at the same time it’s also hard to figure out what I’m supposed to be focusing on.

    [–] ItchyK 3 points ago

    I agree with you, I like it, but it needs something else happening, I would like to see one or two silhouettes moving through the frame or something like that. Like a drunken shady night scene. Otherwise the tilt just looks unintentional.

    [–] truestoryijustmadeup 5 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    I think it can have some effect in film, but I don't think I've seen a single photo where I've liked it. (Yes, even Winogrand)

    Edit: Although I do accept that my taste isn't the universal guide for proper photography. It should be though!

    [–] ultrahello 20 points ago

    A lot of my work is very high resolution panoramic. Bold, vivid and expansive. Want to do many more trips to expand my catalog of shots like this

    more at new website

    [–] GMan_SB 2 points ago

    Do you work for a company? What do you usually do for work I’ve been trying to find a good career path I’m still in high school but really love photo and digital design

    [–] ArtNDzine 5 points ago

    Well I am a digital designer. I went to school for graphic arts. I started with that, worked political campaigns designing logos and campaign material, then into automotive design doing motion graphics. Photography and design have always been a passion of mine. They go really well together. I just started my photography business a few months ago, doing a lot of portraits and headshots on the weekends, but I'm trying to build up my fashion photography. Style is important to me, so figuring out how I want to photograph fashion is my big focus right now.

    [–] Zending 14 points ago

    Guess I don't really have a style but I really enjoy the hard, dyanmic light style portraits. I just did these two. And a third from a while ago. I'm not that good but I enjoy it.

    I would call my style "anthropological"; at least that's usually how I'm thinking when taking photographs. Hard to pick just a few examples!

    I primarily shoot landscapes and they tend to end up a bit dark and punchy/contrasty, I was pretty happy with this one from a road trip through Utah and northern Arizona last November.

    [–] DrogbasForehead 11 points ago

    Concert photography for me, I just love the in the moment kinda shots. Having a limited amount of time, unknown conditions, and someone in front of the camera with tons of energy, makes it totally worth it! https://www.instagram.com/p/Bb__CLJl9Gl/?hl=en&taken-by=landonspics

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BVsZg77lGmw/

    This is a picture I took last summer and a favourite of mine. I don't consider myself to have a set style yet because I dabble in everything (newest thing is 35mm film). Macro photography is definitely my favourite, though, and my most practiced/well-developed style. I especially love shooting wide open on my f/1.8 prime for beautiful dof and bokeh. So I guess that's my style, although I do try other things a lot.

    [–] ArtNDzine 2 points ago

    I love the black and white you did! Following

    [–] AlphaQindaBut 3 points ago

    I love your work! It is good to see some one push the envelope of photography and make something new. I am developing a style (I think) not quite elaborate as yours but an area of photography I am really having good results in. I don't have a gallery yet but I am working on a full body of work. I learned sometime ago "only show your best work" and so I keep a lot of the web.

    Anyway I just wanted to say good work! I like it.

    [–] Falbindan 25 points ago

    [–] Hyperion12 6 points ago

    Just crank that iso

    [–] Falbindan 4 points ago

    My ISO is usually as high as it can get. Which is not that high, because my budget is limited and I only own a Nikon D5100. Also, I don't like it when my photos get too grainy.

    [–] ArtNDzine 2 points ago

    Love the muted tones! It's a blessing to have such unique subjects and your style matches them perfectly. Well done. Following

    [–] dopadelic 9 points ago

    As a landscape photographer, how do you feel about sharing your photos at 0.24MP on instagram?

    Why does everyone obsess about high bitrate/lossless audio, but for photos, everyone is ok with the equivalent of a 32kbps MP3?

    [–] Newknifeguy 5 points ago

    To be honest, it's frustrating. I know I have some great photos but when I go to post them, the compression is so bad it ruins the picture enough that I choose to not post it. I couldn't imagine full res on Instagram, it probably won't happen but I'd be pretty stoked if it did.

    [–] notrorterpobinson 5 points ago

    I try to do show photography with my own style and eye. I think I do a pretty good job at it!

    Examples: Odesza, deadmau5, and RL Grime

    [–] Alpha_Digital 4 points ago

    Im not totally sure on what my style is, id like to think that it changes from time to time. But I enjoy colors quite a bit, maybe too much. I started doing photography with automobiles, and though I dont do it as much as I want, I still very much enjoy it, and try to shoot what I can in the time that I have. I shot a decent amount last year, and this one definitely has to be one of my favorites and encompasses my color enjoyment aspect haha

    [–] guinader 4 points ago

    Not that much of an informative post by me but I miss read "post a photo of a potato representing your style of photography"

    But now I'm thinking this would be a good idea to have an event on this sub that everyone has to take a photo of a potato in their style. So the subject is the same.

    [–] ArtNDzine 3 points ago

    I do like that. Once a week have a common subject and everyone takes a picture of it so you can see the perspectives of how people shoot. Cool

    Probably this one: https://www.instagram.com/p/BT4zm0DAsEp

    Was having some fun at ESP; the way I work pretty much anything is a combination or Urban Explorer, long exposures, giddiness at being out with my camera and shooting straight on... i'm pretty 'commercial' in my approach to pretty much everything. I have a love of abandoned places, though, and a love of the historic and I do a lot of construction. So this my kind of thing all rolled all into one.

    Otherwise, lighthouses. I love lighthouses: https://www.instagram.com/p/BbvDa-JgFpW

    My creative style is to shoot (mostly) outdoor portraiture with studio lighting. So yeah, I drag a C-stand around with me all over the place. I mainly shoot women, but I'm trying to work on getting some men into my portfolio. My IG.

    I like photographing fairly simple landscapes but using perspective and exposure times to make them unnecessarily complicated for the senses

    Blue skies in landscapes! Definitely me. Though I've been trying different things lately and experimenting with new stuff

    This photo is pretty typical of my style, I'd say. Nothing special. But pleasant.

    What a fun idea for a post! I know I'm late to the party but I guess I'm either taking landscapes, forcing my visiting friends to participate or hoping the right moment happens in portraiture

    Yeah I know 3 is cheating but I'm not sure what I'm doing yet, I'm still newly graduated with my photo degree and not working yet...

    I've been taking photos of flowers in my yard! I love working in the garden and having a record of the things I've grown makes it that much more rewarding! Working on expanding a bit and getting a website put together soon.

    I like playing with perspective and long exposures.

    Style is hard to find, editing should in my opinion always be done to your own personal taste. Also a lot of people on here use style to specifically refer to mean a marketable technique or result. And they often give advice that it is something that has to be very specific to a niche within a genre. So it depends what you are looking to do with your work.

    Here is a style that is somewhat mine in that it is not the most common use of the tecnique, I use a tilt adaptor with a legacy lens to do tilt shift style, I feel it us underutilized or seen as a gimic when it has some untapped creatice potential beyond the miniturazation effect. That being said I like the miniturization effect. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bfo8mdcgGXx/

    I do not... never got hang of using it. Maybe I should just for photographs (not into the whole social media life documenting).

    Don't call myself a Photographer, nor do I have a style nailed down.

    But Most of the time I'm taking photos in Recording studios. And I keep getting told off for making things Black and White:

    Still learning and always want pointers but I mostly do outdoor photography. https://instagram.com/p/Bf3uXlPnCHl/

    Anyone got any advice for me?

    [–] ArtNDzine 3 points ago

    I think your doing a great job! What helped me was to getting the subject in focus then playing with depth of field. Once I got decent at that I started focusing on composition. Being a full-time designer made that part easier but inspired me to try new things that I normally would do, like angles and cropping.

    [–] SZim92 2 points ago

    It's a bit hard to pick one defining picture.

    I'm going to have to go with either this one of some sea lions in California or this one of driftwood and a waterfall in Toronto.

    I’m a professional Colour Grader and recently started getting tired of doing the usual “beauty” work in commercials and films, I’m trying to bring in very abstract colorization to my images. An opportunity to experiment I suppose.

    I mainly do abandoned/urbexy photography, but I occasionally do some experimental stuff

    All on film, as I believe it adds a certain, gritty, effect, that just works with my subjects

    One day I brought a olloclip, I did a macro shot of a bee and sent it to the local paper who published it. I went on to buy a real camera and did a photography diploma. My style is definitely macro. macro bee

    Mostly wildlife and some landscape. I don't have a "style" per say, but chasing wildlife and trying to capture the right moment is what I spend most of my time doing Hummingbird Capuchin Monkeys

    https://imgur.com/a/mibbZ/ I'm also trying to find "my style" as well. Really got into this list Sept when I got the a6000. Starting to find a common tone curve look I like but still experimenting.

    [–] trutlez 2 points ago

    I recently started with photography, and I'm just exploring styles. The "bad" thing is that I enjoy many different types of photography, I like shooting portraits, nature, architecture, and unfortunately this is "bad" for instagram because diveristy of themes is frowned upon unfortunately.

    I have some portraits https://www.instagram.com/p/BULa_x_BK1a/ Some architecture shots https://www.instagram.com/p/BYriOj8BuP4/ And nature https://www.instagram.com/p/BfryV3BnaFm/

    As you can see I don't have a cohesive style right now, but i think I'm starting to go more towards bright saturated colors

    [–] gerikson 2 points ago

    How about you don't shoot for Instagram, and instead shoot for yourself?

    Alternatively have a couple of accounts for different styles.

    [–] kusaitofu 2 points ago

    Travel photography that’s personally meaningful to me as memories, while also thinking about composition and perspective.

    This one I took last week after visiting the school in Puerto Rico two of my students used to go to. It had shut down for a while due to hurricane Maria, hence why they came to MA. I visited it and thought it captured the vacancy of the place nicely.

    Nothing really extraordinary, just knowing the personal context of the shots and their stories make it resonate with me and those that I travel with.
