But then again, maybe having no theme is my theme.

 

A majority of the photographers I follow and admire on social media have a signature look to their pictures. Whether they post only pastel horizontals like @brandonwoelfel or vintage portraits like @emilysoto, you can clearly see that they have a specific set of presets that they use to edit their photos.

I, on the other hand, do not.

The way in which I edit my photos rides solely on the feel I want that picture to portray. For example:

The picture on the left was edited for a softer, 50’s film look, while the picture on the right was edited for a sharper, higher contrast look. It all depends.

Furthermore, I don’t know if I’d want to have a consistent feel for my pictures. The whole fun of photography is being able to play with the theme and texture of your work. My biggest fear is to take the same picture twice.

So until I find my signature look, I will continue to create a vast variety of photographs. And until then, I will have fun doing it.
