I hear a lot of talk on bulletin boards and online social websites about a Photographer’s “style”. What is that? What does it mean? Is it how you take your pictures? Is it how you process your pictures? Does it pertain to the subject you choose to photograph that defines your “style?”. Well, personally, I think it’s just another term people like to throw around just to confuse us all. After all, aren’t you constantly changing the way you take pictures? Aren’t you constantly changing the subjects you photograph? And most importantly, aren’t you constantly growing and changing the way you process your images? I know I am, and therefore, I do not have a “style”, and I say that proudly.
I would hate to be labeled as someone who only does things a predefined way, never changing or growing as an artist.
I recently came upon an artist who inspires me to think outside the box. She is very talented, and diverse in her vision.
I purchased and downloaded a couple of her e-books and began reading. I don’t often come across an artist whom I feel so comfortable about promoting, but Denise Ippolito is very different. She has worked closely with one of the top bird photographers in the world, Art Morris. But she isn’t defined by that experience. Her talents are diverse and deep, and she is her own artist. Her techniques are very well described in her e-books, and the results are breathtaking. If you want to expand your horizons as an artist, and think outside the box, then Denise is one to follow.
Her website is: http://www.deniseippolito.com. I know you won’t be disappointed. I haven’t been.
