Whether I have reached a level of consistency yet or not is one thing, but I would describe my artistic style as taking roots in a mix of both romanticism and photojournalism. (And yes, I know those are nearly contradictory of one another). While I don't have a background in photojournalism per se, I am deeply inspired by the many photojournalists and their ability to capture their subject. Similarly, I think my work also takes inspiration from the work of romantic painters of old (Albert Bierstadt, in particular, whose art was often criticized for exaggeration), and in addition to, more specifically, the Hudson River School of Art "style". And likewise, in my work, I'm not adding, nor taking away, what's there or not, I'm just *subtly* shaping the view. I'm trying to invoke an emotion, to tell a story, and to give someone an experience, even with a single photograph. An example of someone's work that I am deeply inspired by is Adam Glanzman (@glanzpiece on Instagram) and Jean Fruth (@jeanfruthimages on Instagram).
But of course, there is also such a thing as "too much", which is always a constant consideration. Additionally, if given the request, I can match nearly any style or "look", even if it is the complete opposite of "my own" style. This also includes photo manipulation.
