I often contemplate the future of photography, what styles will age poorly, how will we view HDR and Vintage trends? Will they be like clothing, will only black suits withstand the test of time? I sometimes wonder if shooting in a clean classic style will age the best? I also ponder about lighting, how will the lighting trends be seen, was the option of on-location battery technology a good thing, or will that standout as a technology phase like the electric guitar in the 80′s. I view those crazy guitar solos in this way, when I hear them I think, they must have just invented the distortion pedal? It’ll be fun to see the changes.
I love shooting portraits, I think the reason is due to the amount of appreciation that future generations have for them. I’ve always loved looking at images of my grandparents as children. People usually seem to only keep the best of the best portraits, something that stands out. I hope that some of my work is up to par, and will stay in families for many generations
