Photographical style

I never really thought of myself as having a particular “style” to my photos, but I was looking back at my old photos — originally specifically from Christmas and then just more generally all of them — and I’ve realised in the last year or two I’ve very much moved towards a lighter “high-key” style where I bring the shadows up and even bump the exposure of the whole photo by ⅓ to ⅔ of a stop or even more, to get a nice light airy feel to them.

Have a look just at my Christmas albums to see what I mean.

It’s even more obvious when going back and looking at all my photos as a whole! My photos from our trip to Boston in 2012 are a good example, they’re all super-saturated and high-contrast, with really dark shadows. I still have all the original RAW files from that trip, but I don’t want to go back and start re-editing photos lest I go down the path of George Lucas and just totally ruin everything with my meddling. 😛
