Nothing you really like is ever out of style

"Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style." 

The longer I do this photography thing, the more styles change.

I've always been drawn to a documentary approach though, because of the realness that's captured.

A while back I took the plunge and upgraded to a new camera and lens, and I'm in love with this new combo. Yes, I do see a difference technically in the photos and how the images are captured. Yes I see that it does better in low light and produces sharper images. 

But one thing a new camera and lens won't do... it won't change who I am and why I do what I do.  I'm in the business of recording memories, especially my family's.  I take photos each and every day of our "sacred mundane" because it's real and its us and it's never going to be the same us than it was today. I want to remember. 

My shooting style may not be "technically correct." I may not shoot with the correct aperture or get as much in my frame as I'm "supposed" to for documentary style... but I kind of don't really care too much. Because it's me. And it's my style. 

And like the quote says, "nothing you really like is ever out of style."
