Fit Your Photography Style to Your Personality Style, Not the Other Way Around

Layered street photograph mall ERIC KIM

A big epiphany about style, photography and art:

First figure out what your own real life personality is like, *THEN* figure out how to make photos or how to approach photos to best fit your photographic style.

For example, I don’t really care to edit too closely when it comes to my writing and thinking style. Then perhaps my photography style should be the same?

Once again:

Your personality style is #1. Your photos come second.
