I recently finished a portrait course and talked a lot about style. What is style? It’s how you, or I, interpret a scene to be photographed. Imagine you ask ten people to photograph the same clothesline full of laundry. You will get ten very different pictures – showing their different styles.


Me? I like a hint of motion, a wide angle lens, and available light. I will shoot what is needed but – all else being equal – I will default to certain style elements. Check this past photo of the month from a roller ski race in the fall:


What is YOUR style of shooting? What creative elements do you favour?


Have fun,
