There are a lot of cliches on flickr.
Basically anything with epic bokeh and a person in it is amazing but you ask the same people why they like it and they have no idea. Not that this is bad, at least it conveys enough. However you get to a point where someone is ONLY doing high bokeh, multiplicity backlit girl with cat with fancy film-esque processing and no 100% black values (of the RGB sort) so it looks like the photo is 20 years old. Sure this is great but tbh anyone can do one thing great. Sure I sat down at our piano a while back made up a little song by stringing together notes that sounded cool, it has no lyrics yet but even my sister (who does play the piano) commented that it was pretty good. However ask me to play anything else or give me some sheet music and Im stumped. It may be harsh but I found myself comfortable in the 'dark' image mindset and off camera flash skillset but my natural light skills were seriously lacking IMO. Hence why Im pushing this 'brighter' way of seeing photographs. That way if I get cool ideas I will be less held back by my kit or skills because I have a wider experience in more techniques/gear/environments. There is a whole consensus that you are either really good at 'studio' lighting or you are really good at available/natural light. Im trying to investigate if you can improve on both.

This sort of mind-speaking may not make me very popular on flickr but there is some truth in it. People like finding one lightring technique, one post processing method or one type of camera (yea you with the expired film and the AE-1, old style is great but if you're depending on it to take good pictures you're missing the point altogether). Said people will then assume that becuase this *insert one or all of above things* works for them they claim it as their 'style' but really its only because that's all they know. Anyone can come along and 'steal' their technique.. I see loads of cool ideas and could easily hijack them (like today; youaretheocean, she put some coloured cellophane infront of the lense really cloes up to get the effect of a colour gradient that looked like a red light leak) but while I could do that myself it wouldn't be my decision, my vision, my creativity.

To be honest I am still unsure as to what defines a 'style' in photography. I know it's there as I see it in people's work as a consistant pattern in an element of the picture but with so many duplicates out there it all seems the same. Only a small few people bring something original to the table and those people gain my greatest respect.

There's this girl on flickr that I've been (stalking) following for a few months. Her work is quite the opposite to mine. Difficult to interperate and not gutted out and layed on a table for all to see the thought process behind it like I do with this writing (urgh, I really have to stop doing that). Some of it seems deeply personal but not enough to make you sure it is. Anyway, her work went through a stage were an effect was used almost exclusively, at least in all of her uploads. There are a few others of equal popularity using the same effect on flickr and I was beginning to wonder when (and I mean this in a nice way) she was going to move on. It wasnt really helping the pictures in some cases but gained a huge flow of attention from followers as it made some pretty crazy images. It was 'style' I guess but tbh you/I/Billy Joe just starting into photography could buy the same thing and put it on their camera and it would make the same effect..
But then she did something different. A technique that has been tried thousands maybe millions of times over the years but her approach to it was unique, It impressed me big time because it had more substance. Again the equipment required isnt expensive but her creative 'vision' (I have no better word to make that easier to understand) in relation to it was unique, stylish even. You may be able to buy all the actions and curves adjustments and gear that your faviourite photographer has but you cannot buy/steal/borrow their creative vision (I'll maybe make more sense of that word tomorrow.)

Maybe style is not so much a destination but more of a journey. One not just of kit, gear and process but whole shifts in thinking/seeing pictures. The artist that survives is the artist that can diversify, widen their horizons and think within new spaces. Just look at Mattise.

I didn't intent to write this but somehow it's been stewing over in my head for a few weeks and I've only got the words to articulate it now.
The fact that this picture is quite literally tongue and cheek is purely coincidence.
The fact I'm blowing away the strobe gel (see above about the cellophane) is not.

I don't ever want to become so comfortable in something physical (camera gear, post process techniques or genre/subject matter) that I mistake it for the other thing that is my personal style/vision/creativity, which I still havent

Light painting portrait

Light painting portrait

A DJ friend of mine asked me to do a portrait shot for him.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to actually catch him in the act at a club, so had to improvise and provide my own lighting effect.

Having had some success in the past with light painting I thought I'd give it a go.

Strobist info:
There were no strobes! I only own one SB800, and not having a studio to shoot in, I needed really tight control of what was illuminated, and what wasn't. This was shot in his kitchen, and behind are a load of cupboards with a brown blanket thrown over them!

All illumination provided by one ?3.99 3 "white" LED wind up torch from the garage (gas station).
Opened the shutter on bulb, and then illuminated his right hand, then left hand, then a bit on the other deck.
Then a little splash from low down onto his face.
Next found the two pieces of coloured gel with bits of tape on them I had placed on the table in the dark and stuck the blue gel over the torch and applied some light from high right. Swapped to red gel, and did the same again from high left.

Last, but no means least, turned on the mains power to the decks and mixer for 4 seconds to get the lights on the decks and mixer to show up a little.

This is the result, almost straight out of camera, only had one minor touch up with photoshop to blur the record labels to make them look like they were moving.

ISO 200 (sensor native), Nikon 17-55 f/2.8 @ f/6.3, 71 seconds
