A while back, I hosted a website about the world’s legendary photographers. These were Ansel Adams (of course), Sebastian Salgado, Yousouf Karsh, and many more. One by one I observed their galleries and then interpreted and blogged what I believed was the message the photographer tried to convey through their photography. I also noted and studied their composition, lighting, and moments. Truly, they are exceptional.
However, the one thing to note about them is that they were consistent in their work. Meaning that their photography genre, objects photographed, and style of presentation of each image has the photographer’s signature characteristics. And through this consistency they are then well known in the world of photography. Take for example, when we say Ansel Adams, then we automatically picture his black-and-white landscape masterpieces. Or, when one thinks of Yousouf Karsh, then one would imagine his photographs of world leaders. For Salgado and Nachtwey, it’s their dramatic journalistic photographs that come to mind.
This not only applies in the world of photography, but also any other forms of arts or hobbies. In the painting world, for example, Van Gogh and Picasso had two distinctly different styles and both were famous for them. Also in cinematography, George Lucas and Woody Allen are two big names with contrast styles.
