NEW PHOTOGRAPHY THEME: #SAturdayStyle or #SAS

Do you have a signature sense of style? Do you follow the latest fashion trends? Are you obsessed with architecture? Indeed, does one of your shots typify a certain photographic style?

Announcing a new daily photographic theme on G+: #SAturdayStyle (#SAS) brought to you by +lynn langmade and +lane langmade . The theme is simple: Share a photo that represents your idea of style—in fashion, design/décor, architecture, or art.

But what is style? Technically, style is a distinctive or characteristic mode of expression or creation. The particular way something is done, expressed or performed. Sure style has to do with fashion and form, but there is a lot more to it. According to renowned scholar, Cornel West:

"[S]tyle has to do with the ways in which you’re able to orient your critical intelligence, your spirituality, and your sense of character. I think style is inseparable from voice . . . if you have a voice, that’s style. You only find your voice by coming to terms with who you are. You have to muster the courage to be. . . Find your voice, then you got your style."

To share your sense of “style,” post a photo representing any of the following topics—fashion, design/décor, architecture, or art. Individuals can post a shot that represents their own individual style or a trend or one that epitomizes a certain style from a different era, like flat graphic or blobitecture.

What’s awesome about this theme? Well, quite frankly, almost any subject is fair game. Whether it’s a catwalk shot, an interior design shot, graphic design, street fashion shot, or even a shot of an architectural landmark, so long as it represents a particular style, we’d love to see it. It can be a self-portrait, a shot of a fashionista/o friend whom you admire, or a stranger on the street. Furthermore,macro, landscape, portrait, long exposure or other genres are also welcome. That means you don’t have to do anything special to participate in the theme. In other words: it’s easy! :D
