The landscape pic I posted was a HDR. I usually hate shooting landscapes, because it looks so "dead" to me, but I wanted to try the HDR thing with a lot of sky and other primary colours. So what I tried to do is making the pic as natural as possible, but make the colours super vibrant.
It's funny you say they look dead because Anna Shteynshleyger landscapes are on the sites in russia where they had labor camps under the communist regime so in a way they're "places of death, despair, etc..".
here is a link to them, they're huge prints, like 40x50in so from a 4x5 view camera...www.mocp.org/collections/permanent/shteynshleyger_anna.phpQuote:
I'm still not really sure what I like to shoot. I'd like to say that my preference goes to shooting graffiti and people, but I'm still kind off struggling to find my own style.
I don't think your style should dictate your subject... If you come at anything with your own perspective and make it your own then I think it can be a great body of work.
If you look at a number of the big names in art photography you'll see they shoot any number of things, sure they're a people who are known for certain things but trust me there are tons of big names who shoot wildly different stuff. Take Anna Shteynshleyger she isnt quite big name but I know her reasonably well, and she has an MFA from Yale and is represented by a gallery in Mahattan, NY (Moti Hasson) so clearly not small potatoes either... she shoots russian landscapes and then she has a whole series of people going up escalators, and a number of other works.
Basically my point is you shouldnt limit yourself to one thing because it gives you a "style"... people have style because no matter what they shoot you know its theirs or something to that effect...
