i go lie down liao...very sick hah....

My style is: For u to see and for me to enjoy.
Some TSers have unique styles in certain areas in photography. For eg. I can easily recognise tony's style in portraiture, gglankie's style in streets and landscapes, MASter phoa's style in portraiture, dOlBy's style in HDR etc etc.
But, having one style is not sufficient. The only way keep on improving is always make ur style unpredictable yet a successful work everytime. U can still have ur unique style that makes up ur signature, but with one style is not sufficient. U can say this artist style is great and unique but i put another artist who can do multiple styles and yet impress, then this artist is even greater. Which one u wan to be, is very subjective. One can be satisfied at his/her own successful style but some may wan to pursue more varieties and succeed in each of them.

Normally a family/couple bring maid out, they provide the food..
well, take it as free meal provided lor.... make sure order expensive one...
and Kuantoh for quoting this: " . . . . . for those who have no time to attend, or timing dont click, how do we learn. Its thru online materials and books etc. Its thru looking at other ppl works. Its thru learning thru practice. . . . . But, having one style is not sufficient."
I have to add on.. firstly, thanks KT for praising me. and your abstract plus ideas are your style, u cant dey that. 2ndly, take me for instance, in the past, i also shoot blindly for about 2yrs, then after which blazer and zaxh persuaded me to join TS, its true that TS allow me to learn more things from fellowmates. But the problem is i dun understand theory by glance, i need assistance to coach me by shouting at my ear.... n initially i was shy to ask questions, so i decided to spent time to go for courses.. As for me, i realised by going for courses allows me to know my equipment further rather than reading materials online. but for some ppl who are more talented, they are able to absorp materials from online or books, not for me.
Photography need practise not just by learning how to shoot. We at times need to critic our own photos and listen to others' comments to understand what they perceive from our photographs. This is an art not an assignment where you can copy from your frds and submit to pass. There are so many type of styles out there to study from.
Even in CS many have created their own style to present to us. You can take a look at the Top portrait picture picked by the moderators. Cheers

U urself is ur own critic i have to agree. But to be a good critic to ur own photos is never easy. It comes with time and experience and even with every passing day, ur criticism towards ur own photos should be getting stricter and more demanding.
Well the burning question I had, was to understand what do you mean by style? I understand that these style is recognizable by us, but wouldn't it be more meaningful if it were explained by the photographer himself?
Well, its just a fun question, don't have to take it too seriously, after all its still TCSS right?
As for your last para, I don't know how my comments managed to receive such a reply from you. But I have to say this (No offence... )... You made it sound like some martial arts novel... 无招胜有招 lol
This is a very interesting discussion.
