"Location, Camera, Tripod." : Photographer Derek Shapton on Style

A long term photographic career seems to require choosing one of two paths; keeping an eye on stylistic trends and moving quickly to incorporate them into your work, or choosing one way of working and sticking with it, adapting on the fly to technical developments while leaving the essence of your method unchanged. I lean towards the latter approach.

Wow... such a timely piece for me. Struggling mightily with lots of issues right now. Not the least of which is what the fuck happened to my style?

Maybe it took a vacation.

Or needs to be resurrected.

Sometimes I wish I had never purchased a speedlight.

I am so serious about that... heh.
