    You are shooting according to an art director/client's style/needs?

    With me it depends.

    I have my own style that a lot like but for work I'll mix that with other styles, depending on what the client wants, but it is still 'mine' in the end as my style never gets eliminated from the shot.

    I'm lousy at copying other people's styles, so I have no choice but to shoot my own....

    hey i'll pay to own a print of yours, think you have a genuine gift for capturing that "street essence"...

    the amount i'd pay is another matter altogether.

    Sometimes your own style does not necessarily mean that it is not well liked by others. Art is something which invoke the senses, in this case, visually. Most of the time, it is useful to appreciate what others have achieved first, and try to see the point of view of the photographer first. Then from there, it is time to experiment by trying your own style and mimicking the style of others. And then try to appreciate again. Ask yourself what does not look right? Something sticks out like a sore thumb? This process does not come overnight. It will take a lot of shooting and appreciation to slowly develop your own style which others will also like.

    More importantly, one also has to be observant. From a 3D scenery, how to translate that into pleasing 2D piece of art. Lighting, perspective, angles all play a part in the process. There is no hard and fast rule but one has got to start somewhere.
