Style is one thing and variety is another. We most certainly want to reach a point in our photography where we can excitedly proclaim that we have a consistent style.
But regardless of style, our images can sometimes still get caught in a rut of sameness.
Today’s Tiny Tip suggests one way that we can “SHAKE IT UP!”

thanks brooke~ i know i get super comfortable in certain locations because i know the light, the poses, the angles…
You are awesome, Brooke! Love these segments … and your cute green blazer 🙂
thanks, my friends!
Great tip… Loving these videos.
This might be for pro in this business. Because I have not build a decent and reliable portfolio yet. I haven’t master lighting yet and going from one location to another, is going to be hard for me. However, by August 10, I am doing just that… Scouting out for new locations before booking the shoot with a client.
I must say after listening to other photographers, I do need to repeat what I do at every session. I need to delivery exactly what I advertise on my website.
I have to build consistency. I am a beginner photographer who is learning more about shooting in natural light and taking portraits.
I understand your concept but I need to repeat the same great work for each client. I need to understand the settings, how to set the correct exposure each time, and how to take less shots.
I click my camera 10 times and then another 5 for each setting. Why, because I don’t know what I am doing.
Thanks again for this tip and I know by August 1, I will be bored with the same background and need to change up my location.
Thanks for your comment Jackie! You’re absolutely right, CONSISTENCY is important. Consistency in being able to produce quality results every time you shoot. As soon as you feel like you have mastered how to work the camera, branching out creatively is one of the exciting parts of growing as a photographer! I’m excited for you!
