The other week I went on vacation with my family. We flew to Switzerland and had a really great time. I took the big camera to make gorgeous shots of my wife, my baby daughter and the Alps. The iPhone camera is great but pales in comparison to a professional camera. As I am no great photographer you can see this in every shot. But still, the pictures I made with the DSLR are just better. When using a big camera I always try to take more time for the composition of the shot. I use the lens, different focus spots and depth of field way more than when shooting with my phone.
Because my photography skills still lack, I try to read articles from professional photographers to get ideas and tips on how to improve. An article that made me think was about a photo-marathon in Munich (in German). A photo-marathon is a one day event. You get multiple themes and have limited time to find a suitable picture for each. One thing I noticed was the photographer who wrote the article made sure to have a distinct visual language present in every photo he took: He cared for a hard horizontal line in the lower third of the image and wanted to only take pictures of architecture. His skills are on a very different level than mine but we both took the time and tried to think about what we want to show in our photographs and how to frame it. You could call it a style or a handwriting that your images show.
That made me wonder: When was the last time I really thought about my coding style and handwriting?
