Do prompts help you in your photography? They’ve definitely helped me in a couple ways recently. One is that I will sometimes get the creative time to photograph with a specific goal in mind, a specific image I see and want to bring to fruition. The other way is that it’s helped me go through my photo library and see different themes or patterns in my photo style. A friend once told me she recognized a thumbnail image in an online gallery as my image before she even opened it up to see the entire photo. It surprised me to hear her say that, but I’m now understanding what she meant. Even though I feel my eye and style continues to evolve, I do have a specific photo style: I like lots of color, I fill the frame, I look for the light to get bright shots, I mostly use a shallow depth of field, I think with the rule of thirds, and I love natural light!
The theme this week for The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: SATURATED reminded me that part of my style is a very colorful, saturated look. I even wrote an entire blog post about my love of color here and my love of natural light here. I know a lot of photographers like a washed out look, or filled with sunflares, or very dark and moody, or composites, or… the list can go on and on. There are so many ways to see the world. But I’ve always loved seeing the color in the world. So even though I could have probably posted half of my entire photo library for this post, I decide to just pick a few. I hope you enjoy!
As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
