My Personal Photography Style

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity in these past couple of months to take a class at Brigham Young University-Idaho that focused on helping me improve my personal photography style. The class also helped me improve my marketing skills so that I can actually do something with the work that I create. Before this class, I thought I know what my style was but I really didn’t have much of an idea. Now I understand so much better what I like and my brand is more established. I had such a fun time trying new styles and learning what I was best at. I want to post now some of my favorite photographs from my time in comm 316.

I quickly found that portraits were something I loved to shoot. I decided early on that that was the specific style I wanted to put the most focus on. I then had to decide what style I wanted those to have. It was interesting shooting portraits in so many different ways. Sometimes I used flashes and other times I used only natural light. While not all of my photography reflects it yet, I decided that I liked warmer, darker photos, slightly moody. You check out my Instagram you will see this in a lot of the photos I post on there.

As I said above, while I focused a lot on portraiture, I also really enjoy shooting other subjects. I especially found an interest in architecture.

These two images are from my architecture and atmosphere post from a couple of weeks back. I think my personal photography style will also include some amazing bits of architecture in the future.

These last two images are also from my awesome trip to the Tetons. I think its fun to capture movement as well as angles you aren’t used to seeing. You can check out the two posts these are from here and here.

I have really enjoyed my time in comm 316 and have learned so much about my personal photography style. I hope to continue fine-tuning my work and creating beautiful art.
