What's Your "Style"? (5 Images, Please)

Re: Well Put (I think)

I think one’s style has its genesis in how one filters what they see. It is not something that is applied to image making. I discovered through making images (not just photographs) that I see mainly in terms of contrast - strong light against dark and complementary colors - so that’s what I instinctively seek or create in my choice of subjects and is also what I emphasize in post.

I think most pro photographers do have a style and it’s that style that distinguishes them from other snappers and helps get them assignments. I also think that non pro photogs may gravitate to a personal style as their seeing becomes more refined and their experience in taking pics and massaging in post grows.

Some samples of my sketching which shows the same bias for contrast:
