What do you want your work to say about you?
Your style is...Light and airy.
Other photographers that characterize their style as Light and Airy: Annamarie Aikens, Caroline Logan.
You love bright, soft images with dreamy, muted landscapes and creamy skin tones.
Your colors tend toward pastel, and your green saturation slider is almost always in the negatives. Soft, white light is your forte.
What this says about YOU: You're a romantic. You love the ethereal, where the bride is wearing a floral crown and the flower girls remind you of woodland fairies. Florals (especially with a pastel color palette) make your heart go pitter-patter.
Sometimes you might have trouble with consistency. You wonder if your images are really considered light and airy, or are they just blown out and overexposed? And what about those colors? Are the skin tones natural from image to image, even in tricky lighting situations?
No worries friend. We've got your back.
Your style is...Dark and moody
"Use your feelings, Obi-Wan, and find [your style] you will." - Yoda
The force is strong with you. Emotional force, that is. Emotions play a big role in what you desire to evoke through your work. Romantic, intimate moments are your forte, and dark, warm colors enhance that sweet feeling. Bold shadows and muted highlights bring out details in lighter parts of each image, and the darks are nearly black.
What this says about YOU: You get to the heart of the matter. You're emotive and expressive. Your work is your art, and you likely have a strong desire to show others how much you love the medium of photography.
Tricky lighting situations might just be your Darth Vader, especially when keeping your post-processing consistent. How do you keep those images on a bright, sunny day consistent next to those images shot on a dark, rainy day? Sigh.
Never fear. (Fear is the path to the dark side.)
If you need some help with editing those tricky lighting situations, we've got what you need.
Your style is...Film.
Remember the box of photographs your mom had tucked away in the attic?
Of course you do. Because it's likely you sat and went through the entire thing with a spark of inspiration in your eyes. You're a sucker for the click and wind of a film camera, and you may have watched photos come to life under the safe light in a darkroom...maybe you still do. Makes sense, because you're in love with the process of photography. It makes you feel more connected to your art.
So whether you shoot in film or simply edit like you do, you appreciate those muted colors, a softer focus, and that ever-present grain. As for skin tones, you likely lean warmer.
What this says about YOU: You appreciate authenticity. Joyful moments are important to you, and you aim to capture the reality of the moment. You desire connection and interaction.
And because you desire connection with others, you might also find yourself falling prey to the comparison game.
Here's the thing: Photography trends come and go, but what you hope to emulate with your work will never go out of style. Authenticity creates connection, and if that's what you're after, you've got something real good going on. Don't stop (pun) now.
Your style is...Crisp and colorful.
Timeless. That's what you want your work to be. You're not worried it will EVER go out of style, because it looks exactly the way you saw it through your very own eyes.
You aim for true-to-life colors, contrast, and exposure. Your images are sharp, clean, and vibrant, and natural light is your jam. Your skin tones are exactly where they should be--not green, not gray, and not orange either--well...unless a bridesmaid had an unfortunate experience with a spray tan--at least it's true-to-life!
What this says about YOU: You are confident in your art. Trends may or may not threaten to sway you, but you shake it off and stand firm. You appreciate reality, and the vibrance of life. You see the best in people and believe the world around you is beautiful just as it is. You seek to capture the joy life brings and you strive to bring happiness to those around you.
Sometimes you might find that consistency is difficult. A camera can't always capture light and colors exactly as you see them, right? So what do you do to consistently edit for crisp and colorful when your colors are all out of whack?!
We got ya.
Your style is...Monochrome.
Other photographers who prefer Black and White: Summer Kellogg, Allister Freeman.
Color? What color?
Okay, okay. So you do shoot in color. But black and white is your forte. It brings the subject forward and the colors don't distract from the emotion of the moment.
It's likely that you prefer dark blacks and bright whites. Contrast is kind of important when it comes to monochrome images after all. Your style makes any moment a memory and will forever remain timeless. Your eye is drawn to how light falls in a setting and when the shutter clicks, your first thought is, "That's gonna look great in black and white."
What this says about YOU: You appreciate genuineness and honesty. Because of this, your work is highly emotive and expressive--just like you. You likely seek to capture real life as it happens and love even the moments that may not seem exciting at the time, but will be beautiful as a memory.
At times, because color isn't your preference, you might get stuck deciding which way to swing your temperature. Warm? Cool? Ugh...can we just stick to monochrome please?
