Congratulations! It’s your STYLE!! Creating a specific style for your landscape photography can be extremely challenging.
The best way that I have discovered to find your particular style is to simply start editing more images. Even editing images that you don’t think are excellent will still begin to give you an idea of what you like and don’t like in one of your images.
Special tip: Edit an image to where you love it. Then leave it till the next day. Come back to that same image and look it over again.
Many times, when you come back to the image, your eye will see it differently and you will want to change something about it. This is such a great exercise when you are attempting to “find your style”, because your eye needs to learn what it likes and doesn’t like.
Giving it that break, will often help you create that personal look you are attempting to find in your landscape photography.
Keep it up!
Your style will not just pop out in a day or two, so don’t get discouraged. Keep taking photos, and editing them as often as you can. In a few months, you will begin to see those colors that you gravitate towards. Your shadows and light will take on a look that is yours.
It will just begin to happen. The main thing is doing it over and over again. The more you see, the more your very own landscape photography style will begin to emerge.
Learn….but not too much.
Take time to invest in yourself by watching as many tutorials on youtube as you can about the type of photography you are interested in doing, but…. Make sure that you don’t listen so much that you throw your style back out the window. Everyone has their own style, so when you are watching a tutorial and the “expert” tells you to, “Never do this!” That might be a technique that makes your style, your style.
Keep those techniques in your basket. Just because and “expert” tells you something, does not make it true. That’s like saying that you need to believe everything that is posted on the Internet.
Remember that you want to learn techniques that help you make your style better, not take on a style that doesn’t fit you and attempt to make it your own.
