my creative style.

I asked my son a while back if he saw my photographic style developing, and if so, could he describe it.

He said that he did see it developing, and that he thinks part of it is making photos that look like paintings.

I think he's right. I do like taking abstract photos, and taking photos that look like drawings or paintings. As to more elaboration on what my style may be, I'm still not sure. What do you think?

I took this online quiz as well. It said "What's Your Creative Style?" but the result really didn't explain anything about my creative style. Rather, it was more about how I communicate. Not the same thing to me at all, but I thought I'd share it anyway...

[You communicate through creativity

You think of art as a means of reaching out to others but, at the same time, you use it as a shield to some extent. It’s a way of participating in society, in a community. It’s the way you communicate with others and the way they can communicate with you. Seen in this light, creativity provides the basic materials to build a bridge between you and other people, so you can’t think of it as something that lies outside your relationship with others. You like the attention and good opinion of others. When you show people what you’ve made — a birthday cake, or a piece of music you’ve written — it’s your baby, so you are very sensitive about any criticism. You need to be able to distance yourself from the result, and allow others to enjoy it and feel part of it, without it reflecting on you alone. Your creativity allows you (or would allow you) to feel part of the world. You’ve got an inner exhibitionist and you think that this strengthens your relationships. What you really want is for others to see the good in you. You prefer to get on the stage than stay in the wings analysing your inner life (although you do that, too). So let the show begin, but make sure your life doesn’t depend on the applause.]

Yeah, so the little quiz thing was kind of a fail.
