Re: How did you find your style?

Style, in any form of art, arises naturally through experience, experimentation, and old fashioned learning. There are no shortcuts. Your style will develop alongside your taste.

Follow your nose. Do the kind of photography that interests you, and try to do it well. Your first efforts will probably not be good. Some will be better than others. Critique yourself rigorously: what makes the good ones good? Try to do that again. Repeat.

Remember that a technically sound photograph is in focus, correctly exposed, and well composed. Take that as your basic requirement. What you do that's more than that is a matter of taste. Doing that "more " in a consistent way becomes your style.

Don't worry about it. It will just happen. As a beginner you have way more important things to worry about.
