Change in Styles

I think it is okay to change your style in photography.

If I don't. I don't think I improve.


This is not saying everyone has to, but change happens if you like it or not, so why just stay static?


I change my mind a lot, a hell of a lot, it was only a few weeks ago that I decided to give up photography, but stayed with it after 48 hours of thinking about it.

In the past month alone I have change from OM System Cameras to a Fuji, and in all honesty I think the OM Systems OM5 was the reason why I nearly quit.

By the way, it is not a bad camera, far from it, it is brilliant, but just not for me. ( more in that in next weeks blog )


Change is my way of refreshing myself, rebooting and updating, I think I have hit Ctrl- Alt- Del on myself a hell of a lot over the past few years, but as much as my wife gets annoyed with it. I need it.


If I didn't find different ways to shoot, different subjects, different location and different cameras, I am sure I would have given up fully many years ago.


Looking at others can inspire you, some photographers that I follow such as Trever Sherwin, James Poppsy, Grainy Day have done just that, and although I am not replicating their style, It has made be try a different approach to the way some of my shots have, and are being composed.


So with that, here are a few where I have changed my style a bit..


Hope you like?



Taken at Hengistbury Head, A very simple comp for me.


Fuji X-T2 / XF18-135mm / KASE ND GD



Shot on a hill somewhere in Wiltshire.. I think it is Win Hill? Again, a little different for me, and simple.


Fuji X-T2 /XF18-135mm/


London, Cityscapes is a genera that I love. Even though I am a sea and landscape fan, and love being in the wilds, Cities offer so much.


Fuji X-T2 /XF 18-135.



I have seen this shot done by someone else, and loved it, it is not as easy as it looks as there is a lot of vibration on this bridge and you need just the right amount of people to make it work at 1.5 secs.

Might be one of my favourites this?


Fuji X-T2 / XF18-135/ KASE ND64




Another of the icons from a day out in London, but you have to really.

Taken from Tower Bridge with my camera lens on a tripod leg while on the wall of the bridge.

Fuji X-T2 / XF18-135/ KASE ND1000/ 60sec


So there you go, I am off in a minute to pack my bag and hopefully get a decent sunset over Keyhaven, a lighthouse may be involved, but nothings is truly guaranteed.


Thanks for reading and I will be back with more ramblings next week.


Stay safe,


Matt
